Hi all,


just bought an APM board two weeks ago.

I am Trex 450 pilot and really keen on testing Arducopter with it.

When reading through the forum discussions, it made me feel a bit nervous. I thought arducopter for traditional heli was already tested and proofed to work.

Now it is clear, it is not a simple plug and play solution, but at least some guys here gained experience and had sucessfull test flights with it.

I hope to contribute soon with my own tests.
