Fenix Autopilot is a DIY project aimed to provide an alternative to commercial autopilots.
The definitive Opensource autopilot for small to medium sailing boats!
I am a passionate of sail cruising. In my aim to equipe my weekender boat, I faced the need for navigation aids. Disregarding the reduction of costs that electronics have suffered, a basic navigation system is still very expensive and out of my budget.
I may understand there are many other people also interested in such a system but not able to find a complete and documented solution to be adopted.
