  • Kai, did u saw at Github

  • Hello

    on their web page they say "usable as datalogger with non paparazzi firmware (not yet published, available on demand)"

    Does anyone know about it or give me some help?

  • well

  • Robert, I am a Paparazzi user, there are many many variants of Paparazzi H/W boards and the firmware works for them, Apogee is one of them.

  • a board which is not a 99 percent compatible clone.

    having no worries with the sw.

  • Robert, what u mean by real Paparazzi ?

    Apogee runs paparazzi code having sensors fusion into a tiny chip making it 9-DOF IMU, having everything except barometer in the chip MPU9150.

  • still thinking about a real paparazzi board...
