"Guys I have looking forward for IMU with Cortex M7. OpenMV guys have come up with a borad which has M7. So why is Pixhawk behind. It seems to be the logical next step."

Cool Dude commented on Dario Lindo Andres's blog post How to: Compile ArduPilot on Windows 10 with Ubuntu Bash.
"This is pretty awesome. I can even run SITL in this. I was wondering if there is a way to access the VCOM port created by ftdi. In that case we can run mavproxy to act as ground station. That would be great."
