Don Morrison replied to Dr.thae maung maung's discussion cannot load ArduPlane V2.74 to APM 2.5
"I think what's most likely is that your libraries aren't in the right place in your Arduino directory. I'm too tired at the moment to get into specifics, but you might want to look up "Libraries" at arduino.cc to make sure they're where they need to…"

"I have a NEO-6M running on a CRIUS AIOP. Something is weird where the GPS seems to keep the whole system from booting up. if I unplug the GPS it will boot up fine. Maybe there's still a loose or intermittent connection, but I have my suspicions…"

Don Morrison commented on M.S. IBN SEDDIK's blog post Today I tried my quadcopter, but I didn't like it...
"What board are you using? I see a GPS module. Maybe get rid of the bells and whistles and start  out more basic. Is it possible you have one of your switches set to something like altitude hold and it decided to fly there for you? Strip it down do…"

Don Morrison replied to James Hicks's discussion Difficulty finding a few answers...
"If you're just starting out with flying, I would recommend starting with that. A Bixler would be a good plane to learn on. I started with a Dynam Hawk Sky, which is similar. I like having the ailerons (and ability to use them as flaps and spoilers…"
