Autopilot UAV 2.5  
  by Tramm Hudson (http://freshmeat.net/~tramm/)

About:
autopilot is a command and control system for  Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. It
provides hands-off  flight controls for helicopters and simple "moving 
map" control for the ground station. Manual  control is similar to
operation under IFR with three  axis EFIS.  

Changes:
The telemetry network layer has been reworked to use timestamped and tagged
UDP datagrams. This avoids the problems with dropped TCP packets causing
the entire data stream to be lost. The servo driver now supports high
speed ("digital") servos from JR and Futaba on the Rev 2.4 boards. Rev 2.2
boards require hardware modifications to support the new servos. The
Futaba PCM1024 radio format can be decoded in real time. All GUI codes
have been wrapped into Fltk widgets for a more professional appearance.
