I have noticed that the last few releases have been too big for the APM1. I have a few questions:
Is development for the APM1 over, Do I have to go and buy a new board now?
How long will the APM2 last before a better board is released and I have to shell out again?
What is the best release (least buggy and most features) for the APM 1?
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
The APM 1 can be upgraded to a 2560 and will still fly very nicely for a long time.
Thank you Jason, I will get myself a chip sometime soon and give it a go! I take it the pinouts are the same, it just has more memory.
Or else you could buy an APM1 2560 and keep the oilpan. Save some hassle.
I have a APM1 that I was thinking about using again. How do I know it it’s a 2560? Is that displayed in the Mission Planner?
Also is it compatible with the new Ublox GPS?
You can find out what chip it is one of two ways:
One, read the top of the chip.
Two, try to upload 2.7.1 onto it and it will say its too big if its the 1280.
The GPS, if the Ublox is compatible with the APM1 then yes.
