Thanks for your tips.

Have a look on They have the ArduPilot which is by far not as capable as Paparazzi but definitely cheaper and they say it is easier. Just to see something else, too. Not a suggestion.

I was more thinking about saving money on the airframe.
A paparazzi board will not be cheap. But this is a well established opensource project and quite frankly, I expect a much cleaner software on a hardware with some 'umpf'.

Can anyone maybe suggest a bigger and flexible and of course cheap solution? Maybe some easy DIY plans. Optics are irrelevant. :) And how difficult is it to scale things up? Maybe they get unreasonable expensive... I have no idea, I'm not a RC guy.

Welcome to the world of R/C flying! I started R/C flying recently, so I feel competent to answer beginners questions. See for some hints (in German, sorry to the other readers). I strongly suggest that you look for an R/C club in your vicinity.
Thanks for the tips.

Although I have never flown the Multiplex TwinStar, I think this could be the thing for you. Used TwinStars are often available through Ebay. Optics not too bad, somewhat crash-resistant, easy to repair if not.

Great. They seem look like they are just what I'm looking for. And pretty cheap too. I will look around or local resources for advice and buying. There should be clubs and shops around my area.
