BaioJet Kolibri the next frame for Ardupilot Mega Test ;) (FOXTEAM)

Dear Friends,
we're a little crazy so we would test the Ardupilot Mega on this frame. This is a best Italian Composite Fiber Frame for Electric Jet , But our friends TAMACO put a Kolibri Turbine on it ... in this video you can see how fast is that BaioJet Kolibry by TAMACO , the maximum speed test is around 300 km/h . We would test on this kind of frame the functionality of new ArduPilot Mega Board ... we hope don't crash your board Chris ;)

Java Ground Station by Riccardo Ferrari

Dear Friends,

this is the first video of Java GS by Riccardo Ferrari (Fox Team) in action.

Java GS using RPC Server architecture implemented in Arducopter Redfox74 branch.

This is new approach to Groundstation for people that prefer completly opensource architecture instead to use labview. In the next revision of Arducopter i think that we implement this code as experimental , activable by DEFINE .
