one the EMAV08 competition many groups uses the paparazzi system again. The weather condition (wind in the range of 10m/s)  was worse even for light weight MAVs like the Lerche 400 (195g).  The ranking of paparazzi users of normal plane aircrafts in the out door autonomous completion were:

3. place  Holliday 50,  TU delft, paparazzi hardware, but one software
5. place  glases one,  MAC, manual landing necessary, no autonomous landing, three landing attempts
6. place  dodox , RTWH Aachen
10. place lerche 400, akaflieg Bremen, no autonomous landing in time, four landing attempts

 The lerche 400 and the glasses one shown the same problems with the autonomous landing and the flight path near the turbulences of the wood. I don’t know the reasons (problem with the wind vector, high estimation, attitude estimation).

 Some questions: What did de Wagter chance in his software.  What software version uses the dodox of the  RTWH Aachen?  What was the reason of the malfunction in autonomous landing near the wood for the Lerche 400 and the glasses one? I thing to answer these  questions will result in improvements of the system (software or aircraft setting).
