  Thanks for your reply....I have again few doubts
1) Please tell me how to do on board data logging when I am using paparazzi TWOG Autopilot board on my Micro Aerial Vehicle? I believe people might have already done this exercise. I know the Umarim board comes with a data logger but In case if i am using any of the tiny board what are the feasible options for on board data logging? Anybody please help me out.

2) I wanted to measure the motor/Propeller RPM, from the Internet I found Eagle tree has one Brush less RPM sensor to measure the motor/Propeller RPM, Does paparazzi board has provision to accept this RPM sensor measurement as Input? If yes how to do that?

Thanks and Regards

undoubtedly correct me...)

I don't think anybody has used HWIL for quite some time on Paparazzi
(at least not what is currently in the repository).

I think you will definitely have to rewrite a considerable portion of
the code if you are using anything other than IR and GPS. There has
been considerable code refactoring and you may have to start HWIL
support from scratch to do it properly (I am not one to ask about
this). I don't think there is any provision for measuring analog
output of actuators rather than just send the current actuator
commands back via datalink (which in my mind makes rather more sense).

There has been work done in the past to create an SD datalogger for
the LPC21 architecture, but this used a separate processor (like
another TWOG) due to the processor intensive nature of writing to the
SD card with SPI. Hopefully someone who has actually done this can
elaborate further.

Hope that helps a little.
