Project NAAVIK (Navigation for Autonomous Aerial Vehicles by IIT Kanpur)

NAAVIK aims to be an open source cross platform / vehicle autopilot project meant for UAV / MAV applications. NAAVIK has already been tested on fixed wing, flapping wing, quadrotor, coaxial and conventional helicopter platforms for fully autonomous flight. It offers wide range of features such as: autonomous loiter at given height, autonomous height hold and hover position hold, auto landing and way point navigation capabilities.
