"Either frame works well but I suggest you go with the X frame. I assume you have a limited budget therefore keep your requirements simple. Select a frame that fit those requirements. Example, I have a frame that can hold a camera. I don't need…"

"I'm guessing that your APM is thinking that a compass is connected but it really isn't.  This is just a wild guess with not enough information to go on from you. I'm assuming you have cut the trace and tried connecting an…"

"Randy,     Welcome back.  Yes, that's pretty much the only difference (that I know of) between the APM2.5 and 2.6.  There's a video on this wiki page showing how to cut the trace to disable the onboard compass."

APM 2.5 VS APM 2.6 - A few quick questions

I have two APM 2.5. I have been busy the last year or so and just getting back in. The only difference between the two APMs is the 2.6 does not have the GPS and compass? I was thinking about severing the connection on the 2.5 and adding the HMC5883L for better performance. Anything else? Thank RandySee More

"I would check CLI also to make sure. I think setup - frame. When I had the issue I enabled motor logging to see what was going on. I had output on motors 5&6. Checked the frame and Bob's you uncle."
