We now have a new update to APM Planner. The major achievement is we now have prebuilt linux builds avaiable for debian and Ubuntu flavours.


Functional features include log downloading over MAVLink (no need to go to the Terminal anymore) and .bin dataflash log file support. So if you have large files on an SD card you can just put the card in your computer and copy them before analysis.

There's also numerous bug fixes, thanks to all who have raised these issues to our attention.

    We have also setup an IRC channel #apm_planner for direct questions, if needed. 

  • Maybe I looked in the wrong place! I'll download a fresh build and give it another try. Thanks!

    @sam: the Tuning page is identical to MP. If there is something specific you are missing please let us know
  • Thanks for the ongoing development work on APM Planner! I currently use Mission Planner in VMware Fusion on my Mac, and while it works OK I'm pleased about the developing native solution. Having a good tuning parameter page is currently the main MP feature holding me to the virtual machine.

  • Bill, Thanks for confirmation ! I have PCDuino as well which can have full Ubuntu, I can try on that also, do you suggest anything  for that as well ?

  • Is there a sim capability in APM Planner? I use this a lot on my Windows VM.

    @rana: the builds are for i386 and amd64 platforms. We don't have a RPi prebuilt yet.
  • Thanks for the link Bill, will do.

    @Paddles: if you like to that as blog post,that would be great. AP2 is across platform solution, MP runs on windows only, and has more features. We are catching up with that. If you have something you need added, please raise it on the support forum. Thx
