Martin reports: "Last weekend (27./28.11.2010) someone broke into the University of Bergen, Norway and stole three Paparazzi-equipped autonomous aircrafts/systems for atmospheric research based on the Multiplex Funjet. The break-in was very precisely targeted to only the systems that had been used in many measurement campaigns. Any information about the disposition of this equipment (e.g. suspicious offer for sale) is highly appreciated.

More detailed descriptions at the site of the Norwegian RC club:"

Ok I'll mention this again. They don't have insurance. We have 12000 plus members here. If even a third gave say $2 or $5, we could really help them get back to their work. Anbody else interested? Can we do a broadcast message, maybe the DIYDrones store could handle the financial collection and distribution. Are there DIYDrones stickers or iron ons or something like that, could sell for $5 and the profit go to the University to help rebuild?

I won't mention this again. ;)
