Hi Lukas

Your problems seem well in the range of what our autopilot capabilities. There are already several universities using it. Regarding the supply of hardware, we have plan to have a new batch of classix board ( twin arm7 ) manufactured in a near future. Regarding the computer and linux knowledge, there is some need, but don't get scared, others have succeded. Regarding the pictures, the sample on the website are snapshot from a downlinked videostream - it should be possible to achieve much better quality using a digital camera. Regarding meeting someone in real life, we have indeed some members in germany - take a look at this page :

Maybe you'd like to come and discuss all this on our IRC chanel ( freenode #paparazzi)

Best Regards

Hello Paparazzi people,
I am new to your project, but I am really excited about what you have achieved 
so far.
On the search for a platform to carry environmental sensors I came across 
Paparazzi and it seems to be almost perfect.

What I would like to do:
-Carry (one) camera for high resolution arial photographs (start with a 
standard digital camera, expand to multispectral later if possible),
-Carry sensors for meteorological measurements,
-increase flight time, use solar power if possible,

My background:
I have build and flown model airplanes in the past, I fly myself, and I have 
had quite a few thoughts about autopilot related stuff. Currently I work on a 
thesis about meteorological measurements.
My University would be happy to use Paparazzi like technology for arial imagery.

What I would like to have:
-an autopilot system to install and test on one of my planes (or on one of your 
-an estimate how much time it takes for a person with some basic programming 
knowledge etc. (I�m not a freak, guru or anything) to get together a ready to 
fly autopilot,
-information on what has been achieved in terms of taking pictures (I�ve seen 
some on your website),
-please get in touch if you could imagine to carry some sensors for the 
university or if we can arrange a meeting in southern Germany some time (is 
that were most of you are?).

Looking forward to any kind of feedback,
