Help finding older versions of Arduplane firmware for APM2.5 systems

I understand that APM is no longer supported, but my 2.78b system was flying great on my miniTalon on an APM FC....but then I had to replace the FC when it was destroyed accidentally when installing some new lighting on the plane ....and I find now that there is NO way to get back to 2.78b....loading 3.4 is the only thing that MP allows....and loading the same params into it yeilds really poor performance in crosstrack..lots of weaving.. ...something I never had with 2.78b and this same plane…See More

Problems with Arduplane on APM, re getting working firmware!

I have been flying my APM miniTalon succesfully for a long time on AP3.0.1....recently I had to replace the APM and reflash....unfortunately, MP will only load 3.4 firmware....the problem is that with this firmware MAG_ENABLE is not longer maintained during power cycles....everything else is....but MAG_ENABLE is always set to 0 on power down!I have to dynamically enable the compass on each power up via MAVLINK!I really would like to go back to my tried and true 3.0.1 or even 2.78b...I really…See More

"well almost...the tumble works now...almost...as it pass 90deg, yaw flips also since we are in earth frame in stabilized modes...so it starts to correct the yaw as the tumble goes 90 to -90 ...winds up a little cocked...I tried to fix it by setting…"

"Got it working....thanks!...really have to think thru how the roll and pitch are varying as you progress thru the tumble so as to let the flight controllers take over at the right point...got some interesting never ending tumbles to earth today…"

Henry Wurzburg commented on leonardthall's blog post ACRO for ArduPilot 3.1
"Thinking back through what I saw, I think that the pitch flip is stopping in all flight modes at inverted...in STAB it then rolls out upright and is facing 180deg from start...in ACRO there is no leveling so it just stays inverted and falling for…"

Impact of no GPS

Running 3.0.1 on a micro quad and want to confirm that its okay to run it WITHOUT a GPS....anything that I need to change in Params...like in the AHRS section? I see references to GPS weighting....should I set that to 0?I want to save the space and weight for acro flying, but will add it for missions....just hoping that ACRO, STABILIZE, and ALTHOLD work okay withoug GPS connected....seems to pass the prearm checks okay and arms...which I though it would not because it has NO GPS...thanksSee More
