Dear Vicente Sarrió,
i am confused for the analogue Inputs: 2 for Horizontal + one for contrast (but 6 IR sensors).
May bee you have to chnage 2 resistors in the IR sensor  (3V Input of paparazzi  5V for the ARdupilot).
Twog is good for you or perhaps yapa. Umarin has the IMU on board
You can also use a low cost IMU from Drotek (17 Euro) for the Twog and Yapa.
Flying with imu is more save than flying with IR sensors.
good luck

My name is Vicent Sarrió from Spain and I am very interested in UAV project. I have some expirience in autopilots in particular ARDUPILOT. I am amateur but I have degree in engeneer. I think that can solve  basic problems ... and somethings more. Everything I need to know what I can substitute forward eager to learn.

I am finished a project of a solar plane. The design procedure has been to show in Phd. André Noth (Design of Solar Powered Airplanes
for Continuous Flight) in his Thesis. This reference was very useful and I think a brillant job. The report The Sun-Surfer
Design and construction of a solar powered MAV by Mr. Niels Diepeveen was very interesting also.

To center the question:
I need a autipilot to this project and I think the best option is paparazzi system.
I have IR sensor (horizontal and vertical) from ARDUPILOT. I need 5 analog input in airborne equipment. What best option in paparazzi project?. I think TWOG or Tiny 2.11 but I am not secure. Is it posibble to find a solution in newest developments (UMARIM)?.

Probably is a very obvious question but it is difficult to me.

My best regards

V. Sarrió
