beginning APM2

Hello,

I am just getting into drones and decided to buy an APM2 module, to be used in an EasyStar setup. So far I've put this on my list:

https://store.diydrones.com/ArduStation_p/de-0001-01.htm

https://store.diydrones.com/Easy_Star_Electronics_Chassis_With_Pan_Tilt_p/ez-chassis-cam.htm

Are all these compatible? The ArduStation mentions compatibility with only the original AP and APM 1.x. How are the things standing for APM2?

Also, do I need the FTDI cable? What is it used for?

Thank you,

Cosmin

Edit: Removed the FTDI cable, as it is not needed for the APM2 hardware (chip already mounted).

  • The FTDI cable would be for programming an Arduino that does not have a built-in FTDI - This is not needed for the APM2 (as well as APM1) since they have this on-board, and only require a normal micro USB cable, which looks like it is included with the kit.
