 +=== How to setup HIL with APM ===
 +A tutuorial for HIL setup using APM Mission Planner, X-Plane, and Ardupilot Mega is available here:
 +http://​code.google.com/​p/​ardupilot-mega/​wiki/​Xplane
 +
 +Note that successful HIL requires the following changes be made to the steps presented in the above article:
 +
 +1. When setting up X-Plane, you must setup the network interface by going to Settings > Net Connections > Data. Make sure the checkbox for "IP of data receiver"​ is checked and enter 127.0.0.1 and 49005 in the boxes to the left. Set the UDP ports to 49000 (for receiving port), 49005 (for sending port), and 49105 (for iPad port).
 +
 +2. You may also want to download and choose the airplane model for X-Plane that APM will be flying on. The Bixler model can be found at:
 +http://​diydrones.com/​profiles/​blogs/​hilstar17-public-release
 +Once installed (following the directions at the above link), the new airplane model can be chosen from the Aircraft > Open Aircraft menu.
 +
 +3. When setting up APM Mission Planner, you should load the parameter file for the plane that APM will be flying on. The parameter file for the Bixler can be found here:
