APM 2.0.17 NO WIZARDS!

I am running APM 2.0.17 on MAC and I am not seeing the mandatory setup wizards. Searching around I see a similar problem from A YEAR AGO and wonder if this is just how it is? 

http://diydrones.com/group/arducopter-y6-owners-group/forum/topics/initial-setup-wizards-in-apm-planner-and-initial-rtf-y6-motor

Please help! I dread the idea of buying a Microsoft product so I hope to find a fix for this. 

Thanks!

    There is also basic documentation here on using the planner to get started http://planner2.ardupilot.com

  • First timer so I like the Wizard route. 

    Just to be clear I am using and the problem is with APM not MP!

    • Yes, sorry - my bad. Just remembered another thread that complained about wizard resetting too much.

      Luckilly, there is no wizards yet,   - wizards are dumbed-down version of stepping thru essential configuration steps.

      APM planner is very nicely arranged, you you just need to look into every item from top to bottom:

      Install desired firmware first.

      Then connect , click "initial setup" , then go thru all items in "mantadory setup"  - you've done whatever a wizard would do.

      Then proceed to "optional setup" - and configure whatever applies.

      - done :)

      • I've installed firmware successfully. 

        The next button down is "3DR RADIO" which displays a host of different fields between "LOCAL"and"FIELD" radios. 
        Is "mandatory setup" a button like "Firmware" and "3DR Radio"? I only have the two buttons present.

        Thanks !

        • Connect, then you'll see the rest.
          • Connect USB-Pixhawk or USB-Telemtry Radio?

            • That's entirely up to you :)

              57600 is baudrate for radio , 115200 for USB cable
