I have built both a paparazzi funjet and a mikrocopter (without the navigation 
I can say that I was also tempted to merge both project.

The mikrocopter as some weaknesses that could be adressed by the paparazzi 
project :

- The proposed navigation unit is more expensive and uses several pcbs that 
could be replaced by a tiny + a compass module.
- The software for navigation isn't very developped (yet?).

On the other hand the imu and the stabilisation algorithm of the mikrocpoter is 

Ideally one would make one pcb with 1 or 2 LPC2148 (it needs to be proven that 
one microcontroller only has enough processing power to compute both the IMU 
and the navigation). The pcb would have the same gyros and pressure sensor as 
the mikrocopter plus a compass and the connections for the gps. It would then 
be necessary to port the mikrocopter stabilisation code to the ARM.

Some guy has already made a mikrocopter clone with an LPC2148 :
