Details on the APM hardware are here.

I am confused with the link above to buy the "Oilpan" IMU. When clicking on the "BUY" link, it takes you to the DIYDrones "Oilpan" v1.0, however, all the documentation states we should be using v1.4. After researching, it appears that the 2 most recent "Oilpan" versions are FOXTRAP 2.2 (OLD) and HOTEL 1.0 (NEWEST). So it seems the link is correct, but the version numbers are confusing. Is there something I am missing? HW vs SW version maybe?

Link is correct, it takes you to OilPan? Rev.H v1.0 which is latest model called Hotel 1.0

@AlexOguap? - i2c ESCs are on the roadmap (see "Software Roadmap" on this page and one member of the group is looking at it but no specfic estimate on when it will be done or available in one of the stores.

Is there any news on supporting the new APM with ATmega2560?

Comment by, Apr 7, 2011

ACM will support it

Comment by, May 30, 2011

I'm about to order one of these. Can anyone recommend a good radio set to go with it?

Comment by, Jan 17, 2012

Any idea how many apms the APM, GPS and sonar all draw. I'm looking at using a 5v regulator instead of drawing 5v from the ESC. but it is only 3amp and not sure it this is enough
