We are still out on Spitsbergen flying Paparazzi. Finally the camera worked for one flight. Went up to 1500m and down in glider mode. Usually we fly slower downwards...but to have it more interesting we kicked it a little more. See the video at


and the corresponding Google Earth file at

Damn now that is some nice decending :) -The blacked out sun looks very cool. Congrats on the flight.

Very cool, especially seeing the flight path on Google Earth. I took the liberty of making the links hot.

Oh well... Gonna have to buy a Paparazzi the second I have enough money.. :) It's just that it's on Linux and the autopilot seems to perform so well in flight.

What the total cost of your on board Paparazi auto pilot ?

No problem with the ESC overheating ;)

Would never fly in U Know Where. At 1000m, it would get shot down by an F-16 & the operator fined billions of dollars for causing home depreciation in the underlying neighborhoods.
