HALFBASE removed by Anton on 10/07/2008. Multiple people have claimed fraud. No delivery of product confirmed yet

Some people have had problems with Halfbase. For more information see this thread in the mailing list.

There is more than 80% received their Products, in which 50% have received in timely Manner! ~ Most importantly, No fraud indeed! ~ Please contact BAE systems ( Global defence and aerospace, for military ) Blake, Alex - Alex.Blake@baesystems.com ( Would offer you reference about me!)

Jeffrey Szeto

There is no proof for the 80% he is claiming. If you are still very willing to order from HALFBASE because of their attractive low prices then do have a look at the thread, the link of which is mentioned above. There is hardly anyone in there who has recieved the order from HALFBASE, also after they get your money, they just stop responding back. I am still waiting for my order from last 5 Months.

Mr. Szeto - swindler.

Our Items

Confused what to buy? We have bundles (Tiny2.11 Bundle and TWOG bundle) to make it easier for you to get what you need quickly. </p>

We know it's hard to decide what to get, what you need to do etc. so we do quite a bit to help ensure when your parts arrive they are pre-programmed and include cables you'll need. These steps include:

  1. We load the bootloader
  2. configure the GPS module (LEA-5H Tiny2.11 we also update the GPS Firmware to the latest from u-blox)
  3. We load a sample tiny2.11 program into it.
  4. We verify it runs the program (LED1/RED flashes)
  5. Then acquires a 3D fix (LED2/GREEN flashes).
  • For TWOG orders we load the USB Boot Loader for you before shipping.
  • For Paparazzi GPS orders we update the u-blox firmware and load the Paparazzi GPS configuration file AND include the cable to connect it to the TWOG
Our goal is for you to focus on learning paparazzi not trying to determine if your autopilot is working. This means you can use the USB programming cable (included) and load your aircraft configuration as soon as you receive your Autopilot.

Please eMail sales@ppzuav.com 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.
