Autonomous flight mission with the ArduPlaneNG v2.x R5 and AIOP IMU board on Maxi Swift flying wing

Here a video of a full autonomous flight with a Maxi Swift flying wing piloted by the firmware ArduPlaneNG v2.x R5 with an All In One Pro (AIOP) full IMU board.This is a porting of the ArduPlane v2 (v2.4+v2.5) firmware and special addons and improvements for the AIOP board that I have added.
The wind was 15 km/h gusting 22 km/h. The flight was very stable in spite of the gusty wind conditions.

- IMU board: All In One Pro (AIOP) v1.0 from CRIUS
- GPS: Crius CN-06 (Ublox NEO-6)
- AirSpeed sensor: MPXV5004DP
- firmware ArduPlaneNG V2.x R5, porting of the ArduPlane v2 + special addons for the AIOP v1 full imu board by JLN

JLN, that's really great !, Since "All In One Pro (AIOP) v1.0 from CRIUS" has MPU6050, are you able to use MPU6050 full digital motion sensing capabilities  of this great chip or you have confined yourself up the preliminary code in APM library for MPU6000 ?

You seems to have been quite inspired by http://code.google.com/p/megapirateng/wiki/portmanual
