    Release Notes: This version drops WebKitGtk and the Google Maps API. Instead it uses the OsmGpsMap widget, which allows users to cache OpenStreetMap tiles for offline use. This version also comes with firmware for the flight controller.

      Release Notes: This release adds logging and a log player so that flights can be recorded. The log player can replay flights in real time, fast forward (5x speed), and reverse. It also fixes an irritating bug that wouldn't allow users to disconnect and then reconnect.

        Release Notes: This main new feature in this release is geofencing. The Flight Planner can be used to create no-go zones. This is a very important safety feature that can be used to prevent the aircraft from flying away or into areas that it shouldn't. This release also changes the format of flight plan files. They are now saved in plain XML format so they can be edited by hand. The main bugfixes include a critical bug in the previous Windows release, where the map did not appear at all in the flight planner.

          Release Notes: FLStation is a Ground Control Station application (GCS) that is being developed for the open-source Firetail UAV project. It allows users to plan flights, tweak settings, log flights, and remotely control model aircraft. It features a Google maps based flight planner and a 'cockpit-like' flight display. This release is a development release, not because it is unstable, but because there are features that are not yet implemented (such as logging and geofencing).
