Did this video help you?

75echo: Sorry Casper, I have never tried the Feiyutech GPS on the APM because I do not have one , hence I can't answer your question.

Geo K: OMG boats! They will be making GPS guided dope boats with nobody on board next! lol Columbia to Cali non stop. Probably would work with semi submersibles too as long as the GPS antenna was up on a thin pole. Jeez, I better not give them any ideas!

david ringler: anyone want to trade a new nazam v1 that can be upgraded to v2 firmware for any 2.5-2.7 ardu

Ashton Grist: this guy was awesome in gavin and stacy lol

taher khozema: what is the name of the gps hardware that you have used?

x-copter filmagens: hello friend good afternoon, I have a plate apm 2.5 with gps and would like to setup my Turnigy 9x v2 transmitter, most do not know where to start, could you help me set up the board and Turnigy 9x??

Akbar Akbari: i can see most of frimwares but not x8 copter !?

youwillgetinfected: Great video! Thanks for sharing!

casper molhoek: Can I use the gps from feiyutech (fy31ap gps)? It has 3 wires: ground, 3.3v and I think RX. But the normal gps has 4 wires so why does the normal gps need 4 wires? +1 sub

glenn ford: you might never have used it but, how different is the setup from this and the cheaper clone from hobbyking, the HKPilot mega 2.5? its suppose to be copied off the ardu and even uses the same software so ive read

Ahmed Abdu: Very good detailed video. I just ordered for my 2.6 board after watching your post. However I will like to use fpv on this board. I will also buy the telemetry. Kindly tell me what I will need for fpv with this board. Thanks

bello770: Excellent Tutorial, Thanks...! I’ll be setting up my X900 Tricopter with this flight control system. Have the KK 2.1 and works Great and is a lot of fun to Fly, just cant let it get out to far with out the dreaded lost aircraft. Working on my 2nd Tricopter Build for long Flight times and this Flight control system should work great. Thanks Again.

chadock38: hello good video thank but could you pas me your pid loiter for a x450 please

covertops2011: Ok, I went to download the software, I went here ( ArduPPM_v2.3.16_ATMega32U2.hex) for the download, now, when I went to open the file, it was a text document, I did NOT get the Mission Planner Software, where is that located?

chris Wildey: My version of Mission Planner hasnt got a "Firmware" button, so I cant see how to select what you will be flying.

Saleem Khutaba: instead show us the link why you don't put in video "description"؟

jay ish: Hello were can i buy this apm 2.5 with case?

stupid corner: what a great video...clear & precise :D

cristian paringit: I want to use it on x4 quad but i can only see +4 on the firmware

M.P. L.: qgroundcontrol runs fine on osx btw. the best hardware to run windows on is still a macbook pro: tomshardwareDOTcom/news/Windows-Best-Laptop-Performance-Crashes-Windows-on-Mac cheers r

MrTimsvids: Very Useful, Thanks

75echo: Thanks for you comments , unfortunately i have no personal experience with arduino IDE . if you post this question on the arduino forums on the internet i am sure that someone with firsthand experience will help you.

75echo: Not really the limits you have are the limitations posed by your battery flight time, many modern 2.4ghz transmitters have a range further than the human eye but i have set my APM2.5 to 'return to home' if it goes out of range of the transmitter.

75echo: Hello Rudy, the Ardupilot is the hardware itself. Arducopter is the software you install on it for multirotors and it can be used in a Hexacopter. Arduplane is the software for planes and Ardurover is the software if you want to use it for an RC car. This is explained at 2:40 in the video.

75echo: The usb connection to your APM2.5 supplies enough power for it to work while connected to the laptop . You need to make sure that you select the correct COM port in the mission planner before you click on CONNECT. Check your laptop device manager where the APM is recognized and see what COM port it is assigned. Open your Mission Planner and at the upper right hand corner select the correct COM port and change the baud rate to 115200 . then click CONNECT ,it should connect after this.

Ronnie Bennett: Even I could follow this, thanks.

Lucas Ault: THANKS

Rafael Lofo: Very nice vid! i wanted to know if there a range limit when you set the autonomous mode... Thanks!

Huan Wang: Nice video! I have a question now. I plugged the GPS into the APM2.5 board and then plugged the APM2.5 into the laptop. It was recognized by the device manager, but cannot be recognized by Mission Planner. I uploaded the firmware(Arduplane V2.70) first and clicked the icon of "connect". A window popped up and said: No Heatbeat Packets Received. I supposed to see the change of the parameters on the screen. But it did not. Do I need to provide a separate 5V power supply to the APM? Thank you!

75echo: I know some people run Mission planner on Mac computers running Windows 7 but they have reported mixed results maybe it is related to the fact that Apple as you know does not like open source stuff . I would advice a cheap netbook with an Atom processor, they cost very little on amazon or ebay.

mickelmaxor: i connected my GPS 1575R-A but its red LED keeps flashing without getting a lock ? i heard that the pin configuration in the board are wrong ?? what should i do

Ravi Kiran: Bro, windows xp in 2013 ? Chinese will hack your crap

mewrongway: Great Video, Thanks for your help!! :o)

Hoggdoc: Great video, but I noticed that the only Hexa supported was in the + mode. I fly my quad and hexa in the X mode. Do you know if there is firmware for X mode quads and hexas'? HD

alpha001ful: How do I know how much board-rate should I choose ? By default , mine is 111100. It is the latest APM 2.5 + , the apm-2-5-kit from 3 D Robotics . My mission planner is the latest version, 1.2.62. Your page is told old now and it redirects us to the new page.

Rudy Herijanto: Dear Sir.. Introduce me rudy, I am a beginner in terms Multicopter. I am confused about the term ardupilot, arducopter, arduplane. is ardupilot can used for hexacopter? because I had already bought ardupilot, whereas I actually to build a hexacopter. maybe you can little explain the difference of both? thank you best regards

elsinidentidad: Is the IMU included on the PCB board??

gauthamtu: Thank u sir.. its very useful to me

James VanWinkle: Nicely done. Very easy to follow and I can't wait for more. Thanks for taking the time to do this.

75echo: It should work, even though i have not owned the HK version myself, i hear it is a clone of the APM2.5 so this guide should apply too.

RonALampman: Great tutorial. I only hope it works with my HKPilot. I was told it does but will just have to see when it arrives. The features on this board are great for camera work thta I intend to use it for. All the best and Happy flying, modeling!

Rushan Bashir: Can you please tell me which type of transmitters are compatible with APM 1.0 or APM 2.5?

David Rhodes: A good understandable video more please :)

Tommy Chheng: i was able to use virtualbox(free) with win xp successfully to run mission planner.

CaallMeeMrrD: what kind of GPS you have? and where do you get it?

alpha001ful: When you have to fly an aeroplane, we cannot supply power to ardupilot using USB. How are you planning to do it ?

Tov Kramprud: do you have windows XP

Tov Kramprud: my brother have windows 8

Hoggdoc: Is there a version of Mission Planner that works on APPLE OSX?

75echo: I can not see any reason why not . However you jumper setup must be correctly configured, see my video on the APM 2.5 power setup on my channel to explain things better.
