Both are top-notch, mainly I use APM Planner 2 because it runs on Linux and MAC OS.
@ Chris: Thank you.
APM Planner works on Mac (as well as Windows and Linux) and Mission Planner is Windows-only. Also APM Planner is designed to handle multiple UAVs simultaneously. But Mission Planner has more features and is overall a more mature product, with a more polished UI.
If you're a Mac user, go with APM Planner. If you're a Windows user, go with Mission Planner.
I would like to know the difference too. Thank you.
Sorry to ask such a basic question: but can someone please tell me the difference between Mission Planner and APM Planner 2.0?
Thank you in advance.
@Simon Feel free to make your own contribution, no matter how small, I'll make sure your commit is credited to the author ;) it all helps

How many companies do you know where the CEO directly commits changes personally (even small ones). And now that this is out, chris probably needs to come up with a very plausible excuse why that overdue budget is not ready yet ;)
Great work Bill! Thanks for pushing this GCS.
Thanks for the release, will test it and give you some feedback.
