Welcome (back) Nicol!  The project has indeed made great leaps in the 
last year and we are now surpassing the abilities of commercial 
autopilots with a system that requires no pre-flight hardware 
calibration, no pre-flight mission planning, and has the ability to 
perform complex search and surveillance routines with the click of a 
mouse anywhere, anytime.  We have been flying in 20m/s winds, heavy 
rain, and of course, total darkness.  The new ARM7-based autopilot is 
generations beyond the original in ease of use and processing ability 
and several members are now offering fully assembled and tested boards 
for a very nominal price.  Pick up a board and get flying!

Hi Guys.

I have not looked at the paparazzi work for some time now. I was under 
the impression that Paparazzi became other dead Source Forge Autopilot 
project ( - real ghost by now) ...

I was not aware of all the new public activity! Looks like I have been 
missing out on some fun!!

For those of you that don't understand what I am on about, have a look 


I have been following the paparazzi work (clearly not well!) since the 
early days. Although it has always been my intention to build one, I 
have (till now) just never been able to find time to nuckle down. I 
have been overloaded on other aerospace work for the last 4 years, but 
I am very keen to get involved again. You guys have me all excited 
about the project again :-) 

Time to climb in! 

Keep up the good work!!

Kind Regards,
Nicol Carstens.
