Martin Crown deserves a huge thanks for publishing his code. 

Some of the stuff I was trying might work with his code.

Nice I'll look into that!

I've flown my Legacy and IMU once this summer.  There's a thread about using DMP on the IMU which has me playing with it again.  I managed to get the IMU talking to the Ardupilot and stabilizing using the awesome DMP.  I also have it outputting to the ArduIMU Test program @38400 nicely.  The DMP reduces the program size to about 1/2 the original size.

I made another use profile, I found everything installed much better on it and runs smoother too

Me too Charles, borrowing the APM though.  Computer keeps crashing and burning which is slowing me up a lot.

Well I went and purchased the APM2.5 to try the arducopter blend

I'm still keeping with this project too tho :D

would it fit inside a cf card case? like the one in my picture below

Thats an em406a gps tho , seem to be doing strange things can't seem to connect to it well using any gps tool software

I switched to my ublox5 and have no problems connecting using ucenter

EM406a in cf card case


I really like the antenna for the ublox

I think i'm going to poke it through the top of the fuse on my cessna
