Ardupilot Questions

Hey guys had a few quick questions. I recently just began to get into Ardupilot and I really like the system and the way it is made, so I want to purchase one for my quad copter. I have a friend that owns one of the Arduplanes and he absolutely loves it. So which systems would I need to purchase to make my quad copter fully autonomous? So far Ive got Ardupilot mega, IMU Shield, GPS Module, Airspeed sensor and the APM 2.5 autopilot. Is that correct or is there something I am missing? I would also like to know is there a package that has all of this in one package? 

Thanks,

Tim D.

    All you need is APM 2.5 and GPS module. For Quadcopter air speed is not important. I recommend getting the telemetry package. This way you have flight data download directly to your laptop in the field. You can update waypoints or monitor flights as they happen. And if you copter flys away or crashes you can find it.
    Have fun and fly safe.

    See http://store.diydrones.com/APM_2_5_Not_Assembled_p/br-apmpwrkt2.htm

    The APM 2.5 replaces the APM 1.x ( which was the Arduino Mega and IMU shield) so you don't need them if you buy a APM2.5
