Modified Sparkfun usb explorer

Hey guys... I'm gearing up my new APM 2.0 and as such I would like to set up telemetry.

I have a couple questions

1. I have a couple Sparkfun usb explorer boards that I had for a Mikrokopter project.  One was for the ground pc usb connection the other was modified: like this

Will this work or can it be rewired this to make it work with the APM 2.0?  I don't want to buy another board if It can be avoided.  Is there something special about the XtremeBee adapter and the slave switch that would warrant a purchase of that board?

  • Never mind, I decided to just buy the XtremeBee adapter!  Scratch that off the list... about a billion other unanswered questions left.
