ArduPlane 2.40 has now been released. Many thanks to everyone who gave flight test feedback on the beta release!
Note that ArduPlane now uses MAVLink 1.0, so you'll need to update your Mission Planner to the newer version, which supports that. You'll find it in the same directory as your current Mission Planner, in a file called ArduPilotMegaPlanner10.exe
For a list of feature changes, see the ArduPlane-2.40-beta announcement. Since the beta the following things have changed:
- auto-configuration of UBlox GPSes. It should now be possible to attach a UBlox GPS in just about any state and the APM GPS code will re-configure it appropriately. The configuration isn't saved, so if you power cycle the GPS it will revert to what was set before, but it should now be possible for the APM to use a UBlox in factory default config. It's still a good idea to setup your UBlox correctly (38400 baud in UBX binary mode) as that will make the detection faster on startup, but it should work regardless.
- updated Camera and Mount control code from Amilcar Lucus and Greg Fletcher. These are not enabled by default, and I have not tested them myself, so I'm hoping Amilcar and Greg will be able to answer any questions that come up. Many thanks to Amilcar and Greg for all their work on this!
