Co-pilot II sensors

While getting my UAV project off the ground (pardon the pun) I managed to get the bare bones basic kit together: Ardupilot board, GPS, XY sensor, airframe and RC.Still thinking about the Z sensor but trying to work with what I have. I dug up the 2.0 code that leaves the Z sensor as optional.. Did not want to fork out more for XYZ and have to wait.Has anyone hacked the digital sensors that come with Co-Pilot II? I'm interested in the protocol but why "re-invent the wheel" as they say.I figure there must be others in the community who had the same thought!

  • ahh thats probably why my Cp2 z sensor wont work. I simply cut the wires on the ardupilt sensor wire for the z sensor and soldered a conector.
