<p>We make it simple. Each autopilot is <b>professionally assembled</b> 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.</p>
 
<p>The testsi:
 
<ol>
 
<li>Power it with a current limited power supply to verify voltages and current draw</li>
 
<li>Load the usb bootloader so it can be programmed via USB</li>
 
<li>Configure the GPS module for Paparazzi
 
<li>Load a sample aircraft program and verify the program runs correctly.
 
<li>Verify the programmed LEDs flash correctly
 
<li>Then acquires a 3D fix in Paparazzi GCS using a direct serial uplink from the autopilot to the GCS
