This is the 3rd video using the AttoPilot and this time I set a route just by the waterfront to test tight 180 degree turns AND to get some sunset video of course...

Very exciting that a Propeller Chip-based autopilot is performing so well. What I like about that chip, aside from its power, is the ability to insert telemetry data into the video stream simultaneously, which saves money, weight, size and power. A floating point co-processors is also available. A little tricky to effeciently use all those cores, but worth it in the end, I suspect.

Chris, I agree and I think Dean has made a great job incorporating a lot of functionality while keeping the main core focused on navigation and using others for logging and writing to SD card and other tasks.
The full set of features are not implemented yet, next to come is camera/aux ch triggering.
We are using the conventional size chip during the beta test so it'll fun to see how small the SMT version of the Atto will be!
