Paparazzi UAV Videos 2004-2010

A few days ago ENAC UAV Lab uploaded their Paparazzi UAV video collection from 2004-2010. If you are interested in some Open-Source UAV history you should take a look at them.

It is exciting to see how many things Paparazzi UAV could already do 5 to 10 years ago, as well as how far things have improved and evolved since then.

One of the highlights is a multi UAV flight at IMAV2006. This is 9 years ago. It is great to see how relaxed the safety pilots are. 🙂

Another highlight is the Paparazzi UAV Ground Control Station (GCS). It definitely has many of the elements of how the GCS looks today but it definitely changed and improved over the years.

Lisa/S The Worlds Smallest UAV Autopilot

2013-08-22_16.19.04TU Delft researchers in collaboration with 1BitSquared have designed and build the world’s smallest autopilot for micro aircraft.

Researcher Bart Remes and his team of the Micro Aerial Vehicle Laboratory at the TU Delft faculty of Aerospace Engineering in a collaboration with Piotr Esden-Tempski from 1BitSquared have designed, built and tested the world’s smallest open source autopilot for small unmanned aircraft. A smaller – and lighter – autopilot allows these small flying robots to fly longer, fit into narrower spaces or carry more payloads, such as cameras. That makes them more suitable to be used in rescue operations for example. Remes: “Our aim? Make MAVs so small and light that every fireman can fit one in his pocket.”

More information:

Hardware electronics will be sold by  (from January 2014 onward) 1BitSquared

Stable Paparazzi Releases

Git-Logo-2ColorIn order to improve the development workflow and provide stable releases we have changed our git branching model.

The branch “master” is now our development branch.

  • The “dev” branch was renamed to the release preparation branch “v3.9”. Switch to this branch if you want stable code.
  • “master” was reset to the previous “locm3” branch, where development will happen now with libopencm3 for the STM32 architecture.

Please see the RepositoryStructure page for more details.

As soon as we are ready to release v4.0 there will be tarballs available if you don’t want to use Git.
