So i finally got my brown bag from Sparkfun. I soldered all the pins, downloaded and installed the Arduino software from here: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

I wanted to try the test programs from this page: http://code.google.com/p/ardupilot-mega/wiki/Programming

I got a FDTI cable from the DIY Drones store for using with my telemetry later, but found out that i can use it for downloading code to the board without the IMU shield attached.

FDTI cable attached and powering the card. The blue LED pulsates when servos are running. I uploaded the RC input testprogram.

After that i tried the "moving servos demo" and found out that the link for the zipfile on the page is wrong.

Hi Stefan,
If you need some almost local assistance i'm in Stockholm. I have been flying the APM and had solved one or two issues on the way. If you need to update the Mega328 firmware i have the tools.

I can also recommend two Swedish distributors for Sparkfun. They keep almost the same prices but much less in shipping.

Lycka till

/Magnus
