My name is André Marques, I live in Portugal and i need some help.
Yesterday i got my APM 2.0 Purple and at this moment i don't have any plane to fly and I just want to use the board to acquire information from it's sensors. After installing the software APM Planner 1.1.75 and trying to connect the APM to my laptop I have stopped in the firmware upload, so my question is it really require to upload a firmware to the APM 2.0? If required what should i use? ArduPlane V2.33?
Hope you can help me!
if all you want is sensor information then you could use either arduplane or arducopter. using arducopter is probly better as it allows for strange rotations and is more depenant on the mag.
Thanks, I am going to try using arducopter. Another thing I am using APM Planner but I think that Happy Kilmore also works but are any other software that I could use?
