Hi Ppuxley and welcome to the forum the rctimer arduflyer 2.5 does exactly the same thing as the original arducopter 2.5+ its well worth buying the power module and arducopter case for it though it makes a nice neat job Please feel free to share any pics or video you might have of your copters
The case is only available from 3DR or 3DR resellers. As for the power module, it seems it's best avoided, has some design issues that make it less than ideal, much better to install a current and voltage sensor (RCTimer do on as do Attopilot) and dedicate a 5V UBEC to powering the APM.
Several issues some of which are more complicated than I could pretend to understand. The best guide to powering the APM I've ever found is on RCGroups here.Have a good read. I've followed that guide and power mine using one of those UBECs set top 5V on the input headers. And I use a separate UBEC for powering other stuff such as lights etc.
I ended up ordering a case from HobbyKing to use with my ArdyFlyer APM board. My first APM is a 3DR original and came with the case.
