hello all,

i am just setting up my ardupilot and i have some questions (maybe a dumb one)

1) ardupilot takes the throttle, ailerons and elevator. is it possible to plug a rudder and pan and tilt direct to the receiver ?

will this have an effect on the ardupilot while it is activated ?

2) the shield V2, i read some ppl were having problems with it, i am running ardupilot 2_7_beat 3

i have loaded the code and i am almost finished setting up my plane. next i am ready to test the working parts.

i have not connected the shield V2 is this now fixed or just leave it off ?



i added a few pics of my setup,
(the second photo the IMU is mounted on its side, its now flat !)

1) you can connect other servo's etc to the other channels of the rx, they will have no effect on AP. AP only uses aileron/rudder, elevator, throttle (if configured), AP mode select (ch5) and rudder (if configured).
2) I'm using a v2 shield and it works fine, wasn't aware of any problems with it

better to attach smaller pics if you can :)
