This is a quick note to let everyone know that Ardupilot 2.5 is feature complete and can be downloaded
via SVN. If you're on Windows, use TourtiseSVN and if you're on a OS X like me, try Versions. The code is located here.
Once the Beta feedback is in I'll post a zip file of the final version. Information about using SVN can be found on the web. Please post any issues in this blog post, and I'll fix them immediately and re-upload.
I'm also building a wiki manual
to help with the configuration, but it's an early work in progress. I'll write a lot more this week, but there should be enough content up there to get you going.
Use the Airframe tester to configure your new 2.5 header file and familiarize yourself with the startup sequence. Don't use the old 2.4 file, except to copy over your old gain settings. I've tried to keep as many of the values the same, but many values are new as well.
By Default the control switch settings are 1 - manual, 2 - Autopilot, 3 - Stabilize. Feel free to change them to whatever you like.
p.s. Who thinks Ardupilot needs a logo?
