Few years back I tried to get a 3DR quad working with the APM 1 - and failed. Long story short, I had many random (it felt) problems and ultimately lost motivation.
Now I thought I'd try again, this time with the plane, specifically the 3DR RTF one.
1. How's the APM evolved? When I have my plane in a good working order, can I expect it not to crash because of some bug in the code (not counting user errors or any special stunts - just normal autopilot flying in good conditions)? Could it be considered reliable enough to not to worry every time I send it to a mission? :)
2. I see there's now a PX4 as an option for hardware. How does the PX4 compare to the APM 2.6? Which one is better/which should I get?
And for anyone familiar with the 3DR RTF plane: is it the Bixler 1/2? Is it suitable for mounting a Gopro?
