I have almost everything I need to install the paparazzi autopilot in my aircraft except the little molex pins, so I am planning how I will mount all of the different bits on the aircraft(high wing trainer).
I started by searching the wiki, and the mailing lists, and I found some of the information I needed.
I took the information I found, and created a new page on the wiki:http://paparazzi.enac.fr/wiki/index.php/Hardware_Installation
<--- Please take a look and add or edit
I didn't make any links to the page yet, pending some further review.
The parts that are still unclear to me are:
1. Is there a particular way that I should mount the gyro? Does orientation matter?
a. How far away from the receiver and antenna is considered safe?
b. Can the xbee module be within a couple of inches away from the motor and speed controller?
3. Is there any special issue with mounting the autopilot, other than making sure the GPS has good signal?
