ArduIMU + Ardupilot

Started this discussion. Last reply by Roy Brewer Feb 24, 2010. 13 Replies

Will the ArduIMU (v2) work with Ardupilot? I would prefer the IMU route over thermopiles. Will the Ardupilot Mega have this built in?

"I don't know about that, I think it depends on the plane, you can usually add ailerons to EasyStar or most similar planes. I added them to my GWS SlowStik, but I reduced dihedral to 2% or You could get a similar plane with ailerons built in.…"

"From my understanding, if you're using an IMU it's best to have ailerons. Most users on this site use Easy Star but that doesn't have ailerons. Are there a couple RC planes that you'd recommend for the ArduIMU?"
