Hi Simon,

I recently started a paparazzi glider project:

Airframe: eHawk 1500
Thermopiles: Yes
IMU/Gyro: None
Airspeed Sensor: EagleTree
Radio Modem: XBee 2.4GHz Series 2
RC Receiver: ACT DSL-4top


I just finished the eHawk hardware and am looking forward to flight testing.

Has anyone implemented autonomous gliding algorithms/flightplans on
the paparazzi yet?
