The apm2-sensorhead project provides a quick, robust, and inexpensive way to add a full suite of inertial and position sensors to your larger robotics project. This project is a replacement firmware for the ardupilot-mega hardware. The stock arduplane firmware has been stripped down to just include the library code that interrogates the connected sensors, and also maintains the code that can read your RC transmitter stick …
