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.
