HiI would need some clarification concerning the orientation of the APM for a frame flying in X-configuration, as I find contradictory information on the internet.- For X-configuration, does the APM "look" towards the left front motor or in direction of flight (between the two front motors)?- Are there any differences concerning the orientation depending on the code (Ardupirates, Arducopter RC2)?- How will it look like with the new ACM code?Hope somebody can clarify this for me,Felix

    Hi Felix, 

    The NG code translates the user input and the output 45° for X mode. When I did ACM, this didn't work for me for a number of reasons. To keep the code simple, ACM requires the front of the board pointed towards the front of the copter. So for X mode, you must mount it differently than NG. Sorry for the confusion, the ACM section of the wiki is being written now, as the code is pretty much finished.\

    1) In X confguration, "front" is between the two front motors. 

     

    2) I don't think so, but I'm not super familar with the ArduPirates code

     

    3) It will be the same, but you can fly in a mode where the orientation of the airframe doesn't matter. You "fly the compass" (north, south, east, west), and the code figures out what means for the airframe.
