Is it possible to use the APM2 with a different arduino application. I want to test the sensors for a medical application?

Hi,Is it possible to remove the ardupilot code from the APM2 and put on a simple arduino program - I am presuming that it should be possible, but when i try at the moment it gives me this error…Continue

"no - none of it is realistic. you can go fast or go far, but not both, as you will use too much power.  What are you actually trying to achieve ? cover a large area ? use many cheap drones.   do a bit of reading around in the forums here…"

Hi,Is it possible to remove the ardupilot code from the APM2 and put on a simple arduino program - I am presuming that it should be possible, but when i try at the moment it gives me this error ...avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00which from what i read on the arduino website says that the arduino is not talking to the bootloader properly. What I ultimately want to do is gather the raw accelerometer data and gyroscope data and see how the accelerometer in the APM (16 bit) varies…See More
