"Yes, it should be straight  forward. Just check the manufacturers compatibility of the APM2.8 which I am assuming is a clone Pixhawk. The APM2.6 was the last 3DR branded 8 bit controller and it still works well using the 3.2.1 version of the…"

"Be thankful of the difference. You are more likely to have problems converting a Phantom due to their cheap non standard ESC's. If you decide to go the Pixhawk route then get a small PWM to PPM convertor (couple of bucks on eBay) and you can…"

"You have a working airframe, so your build is mostly done. If you put an older APM in then the Rx will just connect straight to it. The Pixhawk on the other hand uses PPM input so you need a PWM to PPM convertor. Stick a GPS somewhere and your…"

Thanks for sharing your experience with your APM flight controller. I have reloaded the firmware, but I had a major time with setting up the compass. My theory in thought was that it may of been magnitive field from my gimble, because I didn't have that problem until I installed the camera gimble. I completed a couple of flight with no problems unit I made some adjustments to the PID on the gimble after that things changed. I am planning on making a test flight without the gimble
because the gimble took a beating after the crash, but repairable.
