"It's cool Chris... I am just razzing you a little over the "at considerable personal cost". Given the cost of components, your founders discount and fact that they are only worth about $125 (coming from someone trying to sell…"
"No, I have not received a penny from the company. I'm an investor, which means I put money IN.
Why are we talking about this? Mike just wanted to get some advice for the kids he's mentoring. I wrote a check for ~$300 to help those…"
"Mike, I'm the one who donated the APMs (at considerable personal cost), so I sure hope you use them! The software has been much improved of late, so I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Again, programming is NOT required!
The point of…"
"No I totally get what your saying. I don't want to sell those just yet just due to the fact that they were donated... and I think this could be a great live and learn thing for the kids and myself.
As for the gear... I hear ya.…"

"Thanks guys for all the advice. It's exactly what I'm looking for. Currently we have three of the newest APM 1 kits which DIY donated to our program. So I'm sure they are the "newer" ones (although not…"

"No programming is required! Just download the Mission Planner and plug in the APMs. It's a simple point-and-click setup process. The instructions are here.
PS--the APM 1 is an older autopilot, but assuming you have the 2560 version…"
Hey Guys,I'm hoping someone here can point me in the right direction. I founded a program that brings RC Aviation to at-risk youth. We're currently in various Boys & Girls Clubs.

Hey guys....Here's the deal. I'm in the middle of using the Peace Drone Scratch Build for a project we're looking to do with a Boys & Girls Club RC Program (building our own FPV/UAV aircraft/system. The Peacedrone scratch build is great due to all the extra space we can use inside the aircraft for payload.
