[aprssig] APRS Glider packages

It would sure be fun to design smart packages...

When dropped from a balloon, each one would glide itself to its
assigned GPS delivery address.  A GPS, a uP, some tiny
actuators, and I would think you could put this into something
the size of a toilet paper tube.  With short stubby wings.

A great student project...
Of course, APRS would track the success of these...
So much fun, so little time.
They would have to be lightweight and "bounceable" so that they
bounce right off of windshields and leave no mark on someones

But Gravity is a pretty reliable propulsion system...
