The APM 1 board is still very popular, especially with fixed-wing pilots, but our world is moving to the smaller APM 2.x boards pretty quickly. So 3D Robotics is clearing their inventory of APM 1 boards with much lower prices. 

The full APM 1 kit is now $100 off, at $150

And for all of you with the original (and now obsolete) APM 1 1280 boards, you can upgrade to APM 1 2560, which is fully supported by modern code, for just $49

I just scored APM1 2560 #50 at the 3DR store so there are only 49 left, maybe?

APM1 with AVR1280 chip can do:

Arduplane <= v2.60

ArduCopter <= 2.7.1

All other boards (APM1 with AVR2560, APM2 and APM2.5) can use the current released versions:

Arduplane v2.60

ArduCopter 2.7.3

So as you can see there is only an issue for copters. Currently the AVR2560 chips are 75% or so full, so I would expect them to be supported for the next one and a half year or so.
 But that is just my personal opinion.
