Once you have installed the APM planner in your computer, the next step is to connect to Erle-Brain 3.
When you power up Erle-Brain 3 it automatically generates a WiFi spot in order to exchange data with the GCS.
Follow the next steps to connect:

Once done, Launch APM, go to communication ->add link -> udp
The next actions need to be perform to connect GQS via telemetry. The recommended method to connect the telemetry is via USB.
Connect one of the telemetry to the computer with APM Planner 2.0 installed. The other telemetry part will be connected via USB to Erle-Brain 3.
In order to enable the Telemetry via USB in the autopilot you need to be connected via SSH.
Modify the next line and add a
C parameter with the telemetry route.
$APM_BIN_DIR/ArduPlane.elf -A udp:$wifi -B /dev/ttyS0 -C /dev/ttyUSB0 $FLAGS
If you are using the
escarlata version or lower the next actions should be perform:
erle@erle-brain-2 ~ $ cd ros_catkin_ws/install_isolated/ erle@erle-brain-2 ~/ros_catkin_ws/install_isolated $ nano setup-mavros-bridge-serial.bash
Edit the next file and set the USB port
# Launch a mavros for serial devices rosrun mavros gcs_bridge __name:="gcs_bridge_serial" _gcs_url:="serial:///dev/ttyUSB0"
Remember to restart the autopilot
sudo systemctl restart apm
