Hi Helder,
I am not to familiar with the Ardupilot, so I spent some time looking over it and it seems like a nice product. To answer your question it really depends upon how comfortable you are with embedded programming on the ATMEGA168 onboard the Ardupilot. If you are comfortable with reprogramming the MCU then you could add support for the VN-100 since it has both a SPI and a UART. The UART could be used to connect to the GPS, and the SPI to the VN-100. If your not that comfortable with embedded programming then I would say its best to hold off until someone else adds a firmware update that supports the VN-100. I hope this answers your question. What type of application are you interested in using the VN-100 for? As I mentioned on the forum we are looking to get an idea of what are the popular desired applications for our product so that we can tailor our example applications accordingly. If I see a lot of strong interest in having the VN-100 supported by the ArduPilot, then I might be able to program something up for the ArduPilot down the road.

Hi helder, to answer your question, there is no connection between ardupilot and the motion plus right now. But with the code I developed and the code already available for the nunchuck, it is possible to make a very cheap IMU. The next version of ardupilot pro will use an imu instead of thermopile sensors to stabilize so it could theoretically be useful to the ardupilot pro
