Building Quadcopter Part 10
Further Progress. I reloaded Mission Planner onto my laptop and it seems to work with the controller now. The rats' nest of wiring is somewhat tamed and the receiver and controller are mounted using double sided foam tape (get it at Home Depot where they call it "mounting tape"). The extended landing gear are installed and I found an appropriate non-metallic shell to cover the electronics. Yes, it is a 6 inch flower pot, and it is perfect for the job.
