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.

PPZUAV Get it now without issues.

NEW: Tiny2.11/TWOG now available now in stock ready to ship.
NEW: Bundles that include the parts you need are now available.

PPZUAV has been providing Paparazzi Based products longer than anyone. Our experience shows and you can be confident you are buying from a company that has been providing Paparazi Hardware the longest.

We know it can be daunting to discover Paparazzi and wonder what to do first. So we take care of the basics for you before shipping. Each Fully Assembled Tiny2.11 ready to program another feature the competition is just now starting to offer. How we do this:

  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. This means you can use the USB programming cable as soon as you receive your TWOG to program it.

This means when you order a TWOG or Tiny Autopilot you receive a tested, working, ready to configure for your aircraft Paparazzi Autopilot Assembly. Quite often new users will wonder if the Autopilot working so knowing it was configured and tested will help you focus on the real issue(s) and get flying faster.

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.

Coming Soon: Paparazzi Designed (CVS) GPS external assembly (v1.3) for TWOG
