"I haven't heard of it, but I'd like it as well, if I add steering to my 6WD. 
Do you intend to add the remote base?  I'm trying to get mine working.  I do have the telemetry link working.

"Anyone active on this thread?
I wired my 3DR radio as mentioned to the ardustation, but it doesn't connect to my APM 2.

"My ardustation 2 is programmed, I've updated the software on the 3DRadio, and copied the parameters.  The new air radio does communicate with my ground radio. 
Is there a setting to use a 3DRadio instead of the XBee?  It powers up saying "starting x…"

"@Jared,
Wow!  That's a unique set of wheels!  So all four wheels are independently powered?  I'm using a 2X15 A roboclaw (2 channels), so each set of 3 wheels is driven from a single motor on each side.
I designed and built my platform, and now I wi…"

"@Jared,
That's about what I'm doing.  S.L.O.W.L.Y learning ROS.   What are you using to drive your 'bot?  I'm using a roboclaw dual motor controller, and I do use an Arduino "in between" along with (for now) an APM. 
I want to migrate all GPS, LiDAR…"

"Received and build the ground station, and it's working.
Got another (flight) 3DR radio (915 MHz).  Set up the radio as I did for the (flight) radio on the 'bot, it links to my ground radio and transfers data.  Put it on the ground station, and it d…"

"@ Jeff,
I've got the Align 450 sprot v2 and also an Align 100 to learn on.  I was surprised how small the 100 was when it arrived.  Oh well, could be fun.
I'm doing the tail in on the SIM, need to get back to it.

"@Jeff,
That's great to hear!  Better then I expected to hear.  I'll definitely work on flying with an APM.  
Another question, I remember reading of using a simulator in connection with the APM somewhere.  I have the Phoenix simulator; are they anyw…"

"I've been working on adding APM 2.0 to a 6WD rover.  The mechanicals need work still.  I also have a Trex 450 that I built (kit), but haven't flown yet as I don't yet feel like I can fly the simulator. 
After hearing that the APM 2.0 was flying the…"

"@Joshua,
Brief look, the store looks more complete and I see some shipping options.  I'll try it out fully later.

"If a near-by motor drawing up to 20A has very little or no affect on a compass, then why does re-bar underground and electrical wiring have an affect?  (or so I'm told).
