Where to get the best deal on an APM 2.5


Looking to buy an APM 2.5 intended for a Quadcopter, no current sensor really needed or OSD,, but would be nice to have a GPS. Where is the best place to purchase it? or if anyone has one for sale?

Have you looked into crius AIOP? Rctimer.com has great selection of fcs and other multi stuff. I ordered a bluetooth thingy from them and it arrived really fast.

I agree with Koo, Get a Crius AIO Pro, and slap MPNG on it , a CN06 GPS module.

I thought the RC Timer Ardu Flyer APM 2.5 was the same as the DIY Drones ones. can anyone confirm or deny this.

Have just spent the afternoon playing with the RC Timer one and it seems ok. (I know playing it with it on the bench means nothing)

Well there is a deticated thread on the AF2.5 (APM clone) and it is pretty much for all intents and purposes the same. There has been a little discussion about some very technical difference such as the bootloader, but all in all it will perform as well as the APM (I belive is the consensus).

I have the AF2.5 from RCtimer and I love it. It is a really fun device with lots of options, and I will but again to try in plane someday. The one I have right now has been on a hex, a quad, and is currently being moved to a different quad. Wish I had 3 of them...!

I have not looked at or tired the AIO and the MegaPirates software, but I am very impressed by the Mission Planner interface APM has generated, as it surpasses all other GUI or interfaces I have seen, even DJI.

I just bought an "ArduFlyer" last night so you will probably see me pop up over there
