Are there any plans to build an autopilot based on Raspberry PI ? That would make sense IMHO. There are two major advantages: one could use 3G modems to control the plane and cheapo USB webcams

Not junk, just a different purpose.  The Arduino is a real-time controller and can respond to external data quickly which makes it ideal for robotics and autopilots.  The Pi is a Linux computer.  It's primary purpose is to inspire young minds to experiment with software.  If you go to the Pi foundation's website, you will see that education is it's primary market.  I use a Pi here as a network storage controller.  Fairly easy to set up and draws practically no power when not in use since I am using "green" drives that power down after a few minutes of inactivity.
