This episode we installed our APM (Ardupilot Mega) from DIYDrones. We conducted over two hours of flight testing and struggled at first to get it to operate. We determined that without some kind of settings adjustment, you cannot use an external GPS. Luckily, the onboard GPS isn't overly affected by the wing covering it.
The APM is awesome! We can't wait to do more testing and move on to FPV!
See you Saturday,
-Trent & Nick
