"Hey I did want to share that The BQM-74 is both but is ran as a UAV. The navy cant trust a 700 pound drone flying @ .9mach to be ran by its self but yes it can! :) To many ORM issues!"

Hello, allI'm new to programing and was wondering if anyone had any recomandations for some good resources for learning c++??? I just picked up a copy of' Getting Started with Arduino'..

hi, John,
what you want to do is very possible withe the ardupilot board + GPS (Ublox is best) you don't even have to buy the shield board and the sensors

+ Happykillmore and Jordi did devellop a good soft that allows you to program within minutes a multi waypoint path

you'll also need a FTDI cable to program the ardupilot and set few flags in the config file (.H) and that's it

sounds difficult but it's not really, i could give you a hand on that when you ve got the hardware

regards
fefenin
