Thought it was $9000 for the heli version & $5000 for 1 of the fixed wing versions before gyro prices crashed. Soon all atoms will be free.

The last model I knew of was 2028 , seems they released lower model 1028 with many feature and accessories compatibiity removed. The 1028 price is slashed 40 % to 1500$ on 12th of this month :)
The 2128 is 6K but now comes with UBLOX 4Hz free :) . Read more new here

Is it worth the cost? After reviewing their site it doesn't seem to be that special but I know nothing. Bit surprised they claim it is the world's smallest Autopilot, doesn't seem right at 10 x 4 cms.

smallest, not any more if we compare diy autopilots that we see now but may be compared to some commercial off the shelf AP I guess.

As a 2028 users what you are paying for is 10 years of experience with APs. They have a lot of systems out there and have done plenty of integration etc. MP is not an easy company to work with or for (reading between the lines). If you are looking for a progressive vendor ready to implement a one of a kind solution at the drop of a hat at a reasonable price MP is not for you. Their management has a bit of an ivory tower approach to it's client base.

You're right--it hasn't been the smallest for many years. The Procereus Kestral is smaller, to say nothing of ArduPilot. Not quite sure how they get away with that fib.

@Condor - Gee, that would make them the Canadian equivalent of Unav...

Well to be fair they have a fantastic GCS and really do have autopilots out there in airframes doing great things, they are in a different league to others in the market.
