Like many of you I do make shift jobs with wiring and creative soldering to move my power around and distribute the correct power to the correct areas.
And like most of you know, the APM cannot really give power to components (it can but it is not advised).
So on the end of the day is you have a lot of cable ties holding a bunch of wiring together and if you need to change something e.g the FPV transmitter you have to disassemble a lot and reassemble.
Now with this board I want to print I am going to eradicate most of the wiring and issues surrounding the connection of apm sensors.
I am thinking of putting a voltage regulator between the 12v and 5v so I can just plug an extra lipo (11.1 1000mah) in the 12 volt and all of my sensor equipment is getting the correct power.
Also what I have done is removed the radio connections power from the apm (one would cut the ground and voltage wire coming from the apm)
So if someone could make a change to this, what would it be and why am I eagerly awaiting your input.
