Has anyone tried to set up the ardupilot on an align 550 fbl set up. I'm a newbie when it comes to setting up the ardupilot only just had flying round in a fixed wing for some instrument tests.
Does anyone know where to get longer cables for the x bee modules and the gps modules?
You're best to move this discussion to this forum:
Not many people come here.
I haven't heard of a 550 being used yet, but it should be same as a 600 which I've done.
The Xbee cables can be made longer just by using new servo crimp plugs and reuse the Xbee 5 pin connector housings. There are long-ish wires for the GPS available.
Here is some info: http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/ardupilot-apm-2-0-helicopter-se...
as far as the xbee cable as far as i know there is only one length for sale but you can splice wire in to make it longer
