A few updates on where we stand on various projects:

--ArduPilot: Our second production candidate is now being fabbed. Fingers crossed this one works (it should!). The software is close to ready and I can see us opening up for orders within a month. Ground station software is in alpha.

--BlimpDuino: The final production candidate is in the hands of beta testers. The software is done. Now just preparing to turn our hand-assembled one-off kits into something we can mass produce. If you're a university professor or student in an engineering program and are interested in participating in an aerial robotics contest, PM me here and I'll try to get you a beta unit.

--ArduPilot Pro: This autopilot, which has stabilization and navigation combined, needs to be more heavily flight-tested before releasing. I think we're looking at Q1 of next year.

will you be able to ship ArduPilot to the UK without an import licence and all that nonsense?

Given that ArduPilot is not a working autopilot (it requires you to buy other pieces, such as a FMA Co-Pilot and a GPS module), we think we can ship internationally. But if our lawyers disagree, we may arrange for a European retailer to sell it.
