arduino mega as ardupilot

Hi guys. I am very new at arduino. I am trying to control x-copter by arduino. I have mpu6050. My question is can I use arduino mega as ardupilot? Thanks.

What does the M stand for in APM ?

I know that ardupilot is based on arduino mega! But I didn't get my answer.

It is my understanding that Ardupilot uses C++, perhaps with some libraries, and Mega compatible hardware. The Arduino Mega runs C++ and can use libraries.

It is therefore very possible that you can run the Ardupilot software on a Mega. What do the people in the APM/Ardupilot forums have to say about it ?
