Arducopter Crash analysis request

Yesterday I had several successful tests of Loiter mode, so today I decided to continue testing in windier conditions. 

After confirming that I had a GPS 3D fix, I switched to Loiter mode. It was windy and gusty, but the quad seemed to be doing well.

APM 2.0 daughterboard hardware change?

I noticed that the ordering options for APM 2.0 in the diydrones store have changed. You can order the APM 2.0 with either the GPS or the magnetometer (but not both).

Altitude hold was a lot more precise than just Baro.

However, I then tried to increase alti

Xbee help (AC 2.0.23)

I find that I cannot connect to the PID screen using XBees. This used to work before.

However, I can see the Sensor/Radio-in/Motors-out screens using Xbee. GCS also connects fine.

When I try the PID config screen, it says something about an ID mismatch

Arducopter 2.0 first impressions

2.0.14 is my first Arducopter code. My previous experience has been with MultiWiiCopters and I built and flew several quads with this software.

Wanting to try out UAV/GPS features, I built an APM and today I swapped out the electronics in an existing
