In addition to the DJI Naza flight controller I've been experimenting with APM 2.5. I'm excited about the prospects of semi-autonomous flight by setting waypoints through the Mission Planner software.

This video gives a brief overview of wiring your receiver and initial configuration to get your APM board in the air. I'm using a 3D Robotics Quad-C frame with APM 2.5. Always use the wiki when you're getting started:


I still refer to it daily!

One note is that if you're looking for a flight controller that flies with no tweaking then APM is not for you. This is a controller that is incredibly robust with a large user community behind it, and is constantly under development. If you want something that is pretty much plug and play then the DJI Naza is your choice.

I'm hoping to get a video posted soon that shows waypoint navigation so be on the lookout. Thanks for watching and feel free to post any questions below!
