I am testing the simulation with my new APM2.5 FC , followed the diydrones wiki manual on the simulation process with FlightGear/Xplane which is not that clear. I hope somebody will chime in here and share/resolve the common issues and how to troubleshoot them..

My Test Results & Issues:

I was able to install the Mission Planner, FlightGear softwares successfully.

Issue 1: When i try to upload the HIL Plane/Quad HIL fw on to APM2.5, process seems to be Done successfully but, APM won't work properly(All LEDS wers on) and no GPS FIx.When i loaded the regular quad fw everything worked properly. I don't know if the HIL fw has any issues.

The HIL FW that i loaded was V2.9.1b i think.

Yesterday i tried to upgrade my DJI Naza-M V1 controller with the new v3.10 firm ware and after TX Command Stick calibrations i followed the power cycle and when i i try to arm motors they were not arming. So i connected back to new Naza Assistant software(2.10) and noticed that TX Command Stick calibrations were not saved and lost. They are not showing in green and they were off.I dont think motors arm with out the proper calibrations. I had everything worked fine with old FW 2.10 on NAZA-M V1. I don't know what exactly the problem is. Any tips would be appreciated..Thx

Here is My Setup:
Turningy 9X Radio
ESC- RC Timer 30Amp ESC's -With Simonk FW
RC Timers 750KV motors
