@dr0n3droid My problems started here:
Now I think that I should have kept those clones and just transplant the voltage regulator from the old (original) PM to the new clone. Now I have none. I've sent the clones back and have refunded.
You just can't know if it's genuine or fake until it's in our hands, cuz those stores for sure don't say it's not the real thing. And the shipping costs for tiny things, gosh!
I think I'll stay here for today!
Thanks again dr0n3droid!

I keep that CC BEC around for situations like this. There is no I&V monitor, but but I can still fly.

@António I feel your pain.
I busted another PM yesterday in a rover crash. That's two now. If I break 3 more it might be worthwhile to fix them. I found the part I need.

$6.77 seems reasonable, but $48 for shipping? Something is wrong with the system.

@dr0n3droid Thanks again.
I'm starting to consider this option, attopilot+voltage regulator, for I'm frustrated in trying to buy a PM in europe, instead of trying to go for the higher voltage LiPos. It's the third attempt in buying one PM, and 2 were clones without the voltage regulator, and another went missing in the mail. Most of the best stores in here have it out of stock. I dunno why.

I'm feeling I'm being forced to buy it directly from 3DR, or try this new/old approach. In the while it's been week that my hexa is grounded. :-(

This is what I used before 3DR started making the PM.

Check your LHS.

@dr0n3droid Thank you for the speedy response.
Would you be kind to show me/us a link to one of those kind of regulators? Just as as an example. Perhaps it might be simpler to get one than I though.

Thank you again in advance.

Attopilot is for measurement only. What's missing is a voltage regulator to give you +5v for APM.
Comment by António Cabral on April 10, 2014 at 2:35pm

Can a Attopilot fully substitute a power module in giving power to an APM 2.5 and sending voltage and current readings to be sent by the telemetry? If not, what part is missing to make it complete? THanks

Surely had some stored waypoints and pulsastes the auto mode or you accidentally put the throttle and reverse mode
