APM Planner 2.0.14 on Linux memory usage seems a bit high ...

I recently installed and got to work APM Planner 2.0.14 on OpenSuSE 13.1.When I start apmplanner2 me PC bogs down for about 2 minutes after the initial APM Planner splash screen is shown. It indicates 'Starting User Interface'The terminal window at that point shows 'setting objectName:  "VIEW_SIMULATOR"'If I check my task manager I see at this point that apmplanner is using around 1.5GB of RAM.Why does it need so much RAM? Is that normal?See More

Unexpected slow crash

Yesterday I was test flying a quadcopter with an APM 2.5 board. All seemed well and just as I was about to start flying a circuit, the quad listed to the right front slowly and it seemed like I had no control. It naturally flipped upside down just befor it hit the ground, didn't disarm itself and I couldn't disarm it from the radio. The motors were trying to dig a hole.My setup includes all 3DR hardware:- APM 2.5- external 3DR uBlox GPS / Compass- 3DR 433MHz Telemetry radiosI tried to see if I…See More

"Have a look a libelium waspmote. It would be easy enough to integrate the data from something like that into a custom MAVLINK frame and get your APM/Pixhawk to send it down to your GCS. "
