Hi friends of the ArduCopter,
I'm happy to announce that the ArduPirates will be further developing the official ArduCopterNG code from now on, which we call the ArduPiratesNG code..
One advantage of joining forces with the "original" Arducopter team will be speeding up the implementation of sensors and features like the Sonar and support for Hexas now and Octos later.
The original Arducopter team now can concentrate on their efforts porting the NG code to the upcoming ACM (Arducopter Mega) code base, which is already branched from the ArduPilotMega repository.
Later on, when porting and implementation is done, we will also have a brand new Installer & Configurator from another collaboration of our team members, which will cover easy installation und updating, pre-configuration of the setup (flight modes, attached sensors and orientation...) and Waypoint Navigation through Michael's Mission Planner which already works for the ArduPilot wing section.
Hopefully we can present you a new version of the NG code this year.
Thanks to all contributors of the Arducopter Project! 2011 is promising to become a fine and successful year for all Multirotor enthusiast.
Please visit our very friendly & helpfull community here. I made a build log with step-by-step instructions for ArduCopter beginners.
Happy flying to y'all!

I am very happy with this join... Chris, our "father" here has had a great idea...
G'day all you Jack Sparrow lookalikes.
I really enjoyed your extra stable version of the code.
I have since gone backwards in stability in favour of GPS hold - although its been raining here for years now so haven't had a chance to test GPS hold yet, but did get a quicky in and discovered stability was reduced with RC1.01
Any chance the 2 could be combined? ... it is Christmas after all - just don't ask me to sit on your knee.
Thank you, Jose!
Supporting each other will be the way to go.
@ Richard: Please be patient and wait for the new code to come.
And could you please get off my knee, Rich!? ;-)
Who builds but doesn't fly
I think this isn't really fair
Just try'n to get it in the air!

I see the Hexa radial coax fly , I'm very happy of result of my mixertable in action :)
I crashed my copter by trying a simple loop ;)
