Building a Guided UAV

Shojun (666) writes "I am very interested in building my own UAV, not just one that can fly around happily, but one that I can program to say, take photos every second as it does a barrel roll under a bus (ok that part may be a pipe dream, but still...)
I have enough embedded programming experience — it's the hardware which I'm uncertain about. I can go the kit way, and then build the remaining stuff, or get some Dollar Tree Foam boards (http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1020909) and build it all. I'm in favour of ease, however. Once the plane is built, buying a dev board from http://diydrones.com/page/uav-devboard for example seems like a possibility, but I wonder whether it's overkill. Alternatively if there was a How-to-build example on the net for such an activity that I could adapt, to the degree that I could then program in even completely hardcoded flight instrutions, I can certainly take it from there. Thoughts? Has anyone here tried something like this before?"
