Alex Arevalo commented on Jack Crossfire's blog post Adventures in tablet flying
"@Gary:Jack probably could get a tablet to fly. A tablet is not much different from from the maple leaf design he's already flying!"

Alex Arevalo commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Amateur drone video leads to shutdown of polluting factory
"I had an engineering professor that worked hard to develop a laser-based sensor that could measure pollutants in the exhaust stack of a power plant. After developing, building and demonstrating its effectiveness he was shocked to find that the EPA…"

Alex Arevalo commented on Gary Mortimer's blog post Watch out for the ....
"Gary, I have no problem with what you have said. Unfortunately, just like during the early days of flight, there will be some participants that are a little too anxious to get to the thrilling parts and fail to "do the right thing". At…"

"The flightlog link provided by Brent says that take-off torque is a problem. I wonder is they are using counterrotating props?"

Alex Arevalo commented on Popa Stefan's blog post Indoor UAV capable of fixed point flight and efficient forward flight
"It looks like the wing(s) are a flat plate with no airfoil shape to them, Is that right? The lift comes from the higher angle of attack. It looks like a pretty stable design. I like that it uses only one prop/motor, using even less power that a quad…"

"Dude! Nice Video! The music was good, too. John McLaughlin, right? Calistoga is a nice little town in the middle of Napa County. I love the wine country in NorCal."

Alex Arevalo commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Centeye optical flow copters on TechCrunch!
"@Carl: I would imagine that it might be easier to do with a 'copter since it doesn't move so fast and therefore doesn't have to make such quick decisions."

Alex Arevalo commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Centeye optical flow copters on TechCrunch!
"The TechCrunch sight has a typo: it should be Ardueye, not Arudeye. At least the silk-screening on the board spells it Ardu and not Arud. I know, it's nit. I guess spellcheckers do not yet have Arduino in their dictionaries."

It's intended for game machines but it comprises 3-axis gyros,

and 3-axis accelerometers. It's tiny: 0.4 x 0.3 x 0.15in. (10 x 8 x 3.8mm),
