"The best guide out there would be the APM wiki copter.ardupilot.com. There's tons of info there about getting a drone set up and working, and it's relatively easy to understand."

"Your list of items is asking a lot for this old 8 bit micro-controller working very hard these days. If you do plan to use this for mapping you may want to forgo the optical flow and the ultrasonic height sensor. These are great for low height…"

"As I understand it the 2.8 is simply a side pinned version of the 2.6. My boards case says 2.6 on it. But the item listing said 2.8. I do understand the issue about lack of support. Hell there isnt even any support from hobbyking, and everyone seems…"

"The issue is not so much about whether or not 3DR made your board, and how people feel about clones... It has a lot more to do with the lack of support these Chinese clones offer. For example, what is an APM2.8?  It doesn't really exist.…"

"It looked like all the motors on one side of the craft quit at the same time. Not trying to overthink this, but could have the motor / servo leads come off during flight?"

"I don't agree, most of us are using knock-offs from [insert generic supplier] and support each other on the forums.Buying 3DR gear does mean you can access their support team if things don't work as expected but that's not a barrier…"

"I can understandthat. However, without any guide on how to start looking for what I needed to build the drone I wanted, there is not much in the way of assistance around for the newbie in this community of RC drones. Often one finds out the hard…"

"LOL, no wills response was fine. It was the "Basically its a Chinese clone, so for the most part these guy will not help you." comment that struck me as dissapointing to the community here."

"I wouldnt go that far, and all the info you need is here.....(Just under APM 2. or 2.7 or whatever the last one they made was. I mean It's kind of Ironic because 3DR followed the Maker format in which you create a community based on open…"

"Basically its a Chinese clone, so for the most part these guy will not help you. But I have to ask, If you went for the optical flow sensor and everything why not spend the $120 on a pixhawk knockoff? They almost always work, and fly a quad much…"
