I ordered another CN06 Plus. So you know the color and size and the HORRIBLE mini apm is dark blue. The GPS should be here by friday. Then it will be the stand tests and finally air testing

What was wrong with it? TIA

It's a witespy unit and while the board itself is quite small and nifty the cabling is what sucks. Paul loves to use completely non-standard plugs and to get all the peripherals working I've had to cut and hack everyone of the wires to work. I don't have a 5000000 dollar crimper for those plugs so it has been my nightmare.

Like I said above the controller itself is nice. The wires are the nightmare!

One is a Neo6m the other is a LEA6. Same accuracy but the lea has a few features the neo does not.

Oh and here is another version of the mini apm

http://www.infinity-hobby.com/main/p...ducts_id=10768



same as paul sells only the wires are a little different and a different color

Paul lists it as a 2.6 but it is not as it does have an onboard mag

What did you pay for the APM mini/shipped?

(BTW I hate the mini connectors, even on the apm, and worse on the pixerhawk, they are just unreliable imo (for multiple insertions compared to the 4 decade standard 0.1" pitch standard servo connector, backwards progression imo

It looks like $86+shipping, about the same I paid 1 year ago from uavobjects for a rctimer apm2.5 for $90 (yea I know they are ~$50 now).

"I" did not buy it and most likely would not have but it is what was bought for the project so it is what I have to work with.

The thing I don't understand is it says it comes with all the nessary wires.I didn't really figure there would be a need for that.So all are custom now?Im just wondering if I will have to worry about lose connections over time because those wires are super small and hard to check.I guess they are crimped to metal and slide in a sleeve.I just would like to know for my pre arm checklist. Maybe I should put some hot glue on them once lids balance out.

All the necessary wires if you use, HIS ESCs, HIS GPS/MAG, HIS Power Module, HIS everything else that uses those damn mini jst or picoblade or whatever they are called

You will not have to worry about the wires coming lose as I will have everything extremely battened down
