Loading code to ardupilot

Can I upload without disconnecting the IMU wiring to a new course or even make adjustments to the ardupilot code for PID adjustments? For example, solder the connections for the IMU on the underside of the ardupilot and plug in the HDMI cable as normal from the top. The HDMI cable is a tedious method of making changes. I am hoping the Xbee will ease this somewhat but not really sure it will. I must admit the acronyms and terminology are killing me but I will learn slowly.

    I think you mean FTDI ;-)

    If you want an IMU-based autopilot, you'll be happier with ArduPilotMega. It's designed for that from the ground up. No messy wires and unplugging (and no FTDI cable)
