Hi Christian,

I personally would recommend purchasing a pre-made set of everything if your tutor will allow it. Getting everything integrated and working will be challenge enough if you've never worked with UAV's before.

It's good you've got this far. It sounds like the previous group did the typical undergrad thing of "autopilots are easy, we'll write our own". 7 months later, with nothing but a poorly written NMEA parser and a servo that wiggles, autopilots suddenly don't seem so easy.

The tx/rx pair you have will possibly work. The PIC is worth pence (or cents, in your case). The gyro is nice, and a later project could integrate it into paparazzi - but for now, just worry about getting the thing flying.

You also need to organize somewhere to fly, and someone to fly it.
