aarrghh , I jumped the gun here a bit , I must still do firmware updates on GPS and setup the 433Mhz Telemetry units .. So will probably have to take them off again , GPS definitely and maybe radio ...
ST800 back with Status LEDs , GPS and Telemetry

GPS mounted but I still have to upgrade Firmware , I got this unit in March 2013 so ... update I must .

HERE is a thread on how and why ...

Firmware need to go to Version 1.9.

Link to Firmware (Download 4.5Mb)

It was quite some decision making on where to put APM status LED's , obviously need since the APM will be covered by the canopy. I have done this before on HighUP , check out this page

Do I put it on the end of the arms , nope , no real place to protect them and they will stand out quite a bit , so no ..., what about the two 12mm tubes holding battery tray ? mmmm Nice Idea , but then must drill a hole through pipe for wiring , what about the strength of pipe there after ? no I decided between the arm retaining things ... This also gave me a short distance for the wires which is preferred anyway , and should still be able to see from behind ...decisions decisions ..
