I just received my fancy new APM 2.5 from 3DR, and I must say that it is sweet goodness. Although I am having some issues:
*NOTE* CLI Works only on first connect of power, log download only over USB

As you an see the no data flash/Compass issues. It doesn't detect by Ublox GPS either. I have tried to enable them via the CLI to no avail. I have also tried the ArduCopter firmware to see if anything would "Magically" Work. I Can communicate with it just fine. I just can't view any logs, or enable compass/gps. So no real time stuff is displayed in the flight data. Any one have any good pointers? I have already shot an email over at help@3DR. Thanks!
But it is built in on the APM 2,5 no?
Np! Thanks for trying :). Hopefully I will get some instructions for 3DR to send it in for replacement or something.
Just an update. 3DR help has already assigned me an RMA number, and are going to provide a shipping label! I am so glad that I bought from 3DR and not some clone manufactuer. Hard telling what sort of service I would of got with another company
