All Paparazzi Autopilots

PPZUAV will be close August and September for summer break.

Our Items

Confused what to buy? Just give us an email and we will help you decide (sales@ppzuav.com).

We make it simple. Each autopilot is professionally assembled in a large factory by automated pick and place and reflow to ISO9000 standards. To be sure yours will work we open every one and test before shipping. If it fails we don't sell it.

The testsi:

  1. Power it with a current limited power supply to verify voltages and current draw
  2. Load the usb bootloader so it can be programmed via USB
  3. Configure the GPS module for Paparazzi
  4. Load a sample aircraft program and verify the program runs correctly.
  5. Verify the programmed LEDs flash correctly
  6. Then acquires a 3D fix in Paparazzi GCS using a direct serial uplink from the autopilot to the GCS

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.


PPZUAV will be closed August and September 2010 for Summer break.

CheBuzz Paparazzi

*Note - Due to my professional obligations, my webstore has temporarily been suspended until at least June 1, 2010.

CheBuzz Paparazzi is proud to become the first reseller of Paparazzi equipment in the EU. That means faster shipping, no packages getting stuck in customs, and no having to pay import duties! All equipment is thoroughly tested. Your equipment is guaranteed to work upon arrival.

My Current Offerings:

Credit card processing on my website is approved and installed! It is now my preferred form of payment. I also will accept other most other common forms of payment. E-mail me chebuzz@gmail.com to arrange other forms of payment.

Trying to answer some common questions, I strive to make everything as "plug and play" as possible for you. So of course that means the bootloader and GPS have been preprogrammed. The PPM encoder is also preprogrammed and ready to go with the latest bootloader and firmware. Kits come with all the cables necessary. If you have any other suggestions, I would love to hear them. Please email me and let me know.



Sparkfun is a great source of miscellaneous electronics like:

  • Temperature/humidity sensors
