I am currently flying an APM that is carved open, beaten, twisted, crushed and has as many add-ons as I can fit. While I continue to develop my parts, sensors and such I am also attempting to get a quad built (for faster testing really) and a custom airframe that will hold not just the normal home UAV things but something a lot more special.

I'm enthusiastic builder and programmer but my flying sucks which is why I like APM :D

I have integrated Remzibi OSD, Camera Stabilization & Tracking, and added uBlox DIFF_GPS and DOP to library, I have flown original AP with ArduIMU 1.5 (My 1.0 unit upgraded to 2.0 with AirSpeed Sensor & Mag Compass  in a StevensAero SportStick and a Stryker II.  

I have several platforms in progress for APM 2.

SkyWalker stretched to 100", The New HK AS-21 with popup motor, 2, Piper L-4 Grasshoppers a 1830mm with Monster Power 32 motor  and 2300mm version with Tacon 160 motor  (both are very big inside the 2300 version is really huge, could carry a WiFi repeater with ease.

I update each official; release with all my changes, now current with APM 2.12 

I think it is ready for flight test as I have run it many hours on the bench, last test was 200.000 data points for 48 hrs with no issues.

I am the guy primarily responsible for taking the code from ArduPilot 2.7 to ArduPilotMega 2.2, and beyond hopefully.   I am currently flying APM in a SkyFun, a SkyWalker, and a Senior Telemaster.  I have also flown it in a NexStar MiniEP, so I have some experience with different platforms.  I am using QGroundControl and HK-GCS and starting to look at the GCS functionality in the new APMPlanner.

I have yet to actually fly my APM in one of my TSIIs and in my Maja. I have several Ardupilots that I plan to fly in my EZ*s also. The weather here in North TX has not be cooperating with me, at least when I am at home and not at work. However, I have learned a lot about what to do and what not to do by visiting the Forum every day and taking note of useful informantion.

Regards,

TCIII
