The Sky Drone Team has compiled a ready-to-run APM Planner binary for macOS High Sierra.
Why we've built our own binary
We are currently experimenting with various UGS. One of our testing environments involve a MacBook Pro running macOS High Sierra 10.13.6. One of the most popular Ground Control Station "Mission Planner" is only available on Windows. There is an alternative available from the same ArduPilot community called APM Planner, which is supposed to run on Mac OS as well.
The current APM Planner binary that's available on http://firmware.ardupilot.org/Tools/APMPlanner/ does not run on the latest High Sierra. At least that is what we experienced. So we've built a binary ourselves. It works great for us and therefore, we wanted to share the binary with everyone else who might run into the same issue like us. So feel free to download our APM Planner 2 binary through the link above.
