Confused what to buy? Just give us an email and we will help you decide ('''sales@ppzuav.com''').
 
</p>
 
<p>We make it simple. Each autopilot is professionally assembled in a large factory so every one is the same and the same high-quality. To be sure yours will work we open every one and test before shipping. The tests are the same steps you see on the Wiki:
 
<ol>
 
<li>We load the bootloader
 
<li>configure the GPS module (LEA-5H Tiny2.11 we also update the GPS Firmware to the latest from u-blox)
 
<li>We load a sample tiny2.11 program into it.
 
<li>We verify it runs the program (LED1/RED flashes)
 
<li>Then acquires a 3D fix (LED2/GREEN flashes)
 
</ol>
 
</p>
 
<h5>We verify it can be programmed before you receive it. This allows you to focus on learning paparazzi. :)</h5>
 
<p>
 
Please eMail with any questions or special requests before you place your orders. We return emails as quickly as possible. If it's an easy question within hours. More complex or longer explanation requests may take some time to read then write your answer so be patient.
 
</p>
 
<p>
 
'''''IMPORTANT''''' When registering with ppzuav.com use your correct email and phone number. When there are updates you will be emailed automatically. Should there be a problem with your order (usually shipping address is incorrect) we have only this email to contact you. Give us an invalid email and phone number means your order will not ship until you contact us and provide a valid email.
