The new APMcopter Wiki is up and running!
As you probably know, some of us have been hard at work trying to bring up a new Wiki for the copters, planes and rovers.
I have recently completed installing the vast majority of the pages from the Old ArduCopter Wiki into the new APMcopter Wiki/Manual.
And I have produced a Drop Down Menu as well as a Hyperlinked Table Of Contents (that is accessible from the top of each Wiki page).
Please look over the new APMcopter wiki here: http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/arducopter/
And provide feedback.
There is still some work to do repairing broken hyperlinks (they do not import correctly from WordPress and the images all need to be moved to the WordPress repository), but I am slogging through all 109 Wiki pages fixing them and performing minor reformatting.
There is an issue that I would really like you all to look at carefully.
Right now, I have constructed a Drop Down menu and Table of Contents that completely mirror each other and I think they work effectively together.
However, it is 3DR's intention to minimize or eliminate the Wikis Drop Down Menu at the very least removing the vast majority of links so that it will work better with tablets and to support their own vision of what is in the best interests of themselves and the community.
They envision a very short set of quick starts designed to get uninitiated users up and running as quickly as possible.
And while I think that is a very worthwhile pursuit, I do not think that it is appropriate to do it by applying the scarce drop down menu resource to that endeavor and removing it from the full Wiki.
I think that the current full Drop Down Menu and Table Of Contents work very well together and are an asset to our community.
Please look this over with special regard to the Drop Down Menu and the Table of Contents and Weigh in here, it may be your best chance to influence the final form of our Wiki/Manuals.
Of course, I invite 3DR to respond here as well.
This is an open community that has benefited greatly and grown considerably in no small part due to massive support from Chris and 3DR.
I'm not trying to cause a problem here, but this is a time where our feedback is really important.
