ArduPilot 2.5 - APM 2.5 or Arduflyer

Hi guys,

Before I order direct, does anyone have an Ardupilot 2.5 / Arduflyer (clone) + GPS board around? If so, please send me a PM.

Thanks!

Right now they have it for a ridiculously low price on rctimer, so you should probably buy it there.

Also, pay a little more and you can get it shipped from USA through a RCT dealer.

Hmm, I have never bought from them, just seen the owner on these boards.

I have bought from here, but just not the AF2.5 clone. THis may not actually be it, but appears to be another unbranded clone:

That is the same board as rctimer sells . He gets them from rctimer in bulk. You should buy from him because then you have customer service in the USA. It is a clone of the apm2.5 and completely compatible with the software. Be prepared to solder the pins in place some people mess this up if they don't have basic soldering skills.

Am I the only one who is stunned at the level of technology available to any and everyone for such tiny prices? This must be some kind of golden age of personal...what...? Hobby aviation? Spyware? Home movies? Amateur mad scientists? This kind of gear couldn't be had without tapping into a country's military budget ....day before yesterday.
People say there is no freedom left in the USA, but I just don't get it. I've got more computing power in my home office than went to the moon--heck, I've got it in my (smart phone-d) back pocket. Don't mean to sound political at all, but this a great time to be a home experimenter and one hell of a great country.

Software and setup

The ardupilot Mega is well developed and supported. I am not near my computer or I would give you the link. Look up the wiki for apm and download mission planner which is what you will use for setup and tuning of your machine. The best performing and easiest board to set up is the open pilot cc3d however it does not yet have GPS so it will not loiter or return home.

Thanks guys...it seems like no one has an extra board. They're awesome by the way. This would be my second one. My first one is an RCtimer one, the Arduflyer, which I'm using to do FPV with my quad. Now I want it on a plane.
