In this video we start to configure and connect the Mini APM 3.1 board into a flying Wing so we can fly missions and have features like auto level and RTH (return to home) in the event of radio problems.

In this video we cover -
- Where to go for more details (1:42)
- Installing the software on the PC/Mac (3:33)
- Installing the firmware on the APM 3.1 (5:04)
- What you should already have trimmed on the plane model (9:31)
- How to make up the receiver connections (12:15)
