my name is Bernardo, I'm located since 4 years in Germany. After a long time of reading about multicopter and comparing different brands and options I decided that the flight control and the electronics should be the ArduPilot Mega v. 2.5.
The design and shape of the frame is still not decided. (Should I buy a set?) Still staring at videos and pictures! :)
My idea is to enjoy flying with a copter and the option to take aerial pictures and videos.
A perfect outdoor activity for me !
Is this the only forum with ArduPilot user? Is there somebody else in Germany?
I really hope to get some support her if needed as a newbie - just in case if something goes wrong or I need a tip to understand - but also interested to share my experiences during my learning curve and join the discussion and topics.
A few questions regarding the APM v.2.5.:
What do I need - additional to the 'APM mainboard' ? What should I buy?
Is the magneto meter included?
Is the device to connect a PC included to upgrade/update the board?
I want to fly way-points: What kind of wiring / cable should I buy to get the data from the PC into the copter ?
Thanks for reading! Can't wait to start ! :D
