The Paparazzi project began in 2003 with the goal of creating a free and open-source UAV guidance system which could be easily adapted to a wide variety of aircraft for a wide variety of applications. The system has since proved to be extremely successful and Paparazzi-based aircraft have won all top positions in every flight contest in which they competed.

As an open-source project, all source code and hardware plans are freely available on the internet for anyone to produce, use, modify, and redistribute in accordance with the GPL License Agreement which requires only that the open-source nature of the project be maintained by all who redistribute it.

Paparazzi is currently being developed by several universities and a team of enthusiast volunteers from around the world. It is used by private corporations, universities and hobbyists for an ever-increasing number of applications.


Good news. We have your Paparazzi based PCBs and even fully Assembled Paparazzi Hardware. Our goal is your satisfaction. We are a service company so you will be pleased to find we leave the Fabrication and Assembly to the experts and focus on you our customer. Our FAB and Assembly company is a s good as they come and warranty their workmanship.
