Andrew Dunlop replied to William Burkert's discussion CONTINUED SPOTTY SUPPORT FROM DIYDRONES in the group ArduCopter User Group
"OK, thanks Chris, that is a fairly clear division. Given the ire that is directed at 3DR from time to time, I wonder if this is appreciated as widely as it should be? And I guess that comment "this ain't the complaint department" is…"

Andrew Dunlop replied to William Burkert's discussion CONTINUED SPOTTY SUPPORT FROM DIYDRONES in the group ArduCopter User Group
""This ain't the compaint department" - I presume this is literally true.  So what, who or where is the "complaint department"? Does 3DR do support, or is this outsourced to "the community"? I've never…"

Andrew Dunlop commented on Mark Harrison's blog post HobbyKing introduces SimonK, timecop designed AfroESC
"There is already a 30 Amp switching power supply in this device, I can't see that another 1 or 2 Amp switcher would constitute much of a problem from an emissions point of view.  But perhaps the designer was more concerned about conducted…"

Andrew Dunlop commented on Jesse's blog post CASA looking into drones in Australia
"@Mike T, Yes, the relevant exams are the theoretical (i.e. written) part of the PPL.  No requirement for an actual PPL. As per Monroe's analogy, a knowledge of the road rules is useful for riding a bike, but a full drivers licence is…"

Andrew Dunlop commented on Jesse's blog post CASA looking into drones in Australia
"Not at all Monroe, it has been a very worthwhile discussion, and your bike/car analogy is superb. @Gary, yes I think I have heard about relaxed requriements for lighter UAS.  I am not sure how I feel about this.  I think CASA might be…"

Andrew Dunlop commented on Jesse's blog post CASA looking into drones in Australia
"Monroe, I think we are probably in agreement on this. You gave a beautiful analogy earlier about riding a bike versus driving a car.  You don't need a driving licence to ride a bike, but knowing the road rules is a very good idea if you…"

Andrew Dunlop commented on Jesse's blog post CASA looking into drones in Australia
"Again Monroe, I apologise if my remarks were a bit terse.  But no, I do not know where this PPL thing is coming from. There is no current requirement for a PPL to gain an OC in Australia, and for the weight classes that most people here would…"

"@Monroe - I wasn't having a go at you, I am sorry if it came across that way.  I am just puzzled at how this PPL thing has gained currency. Cheers,Andrew."

"You do not need a PPL to get an OC in Australia.I do not understand where this is coming from."

Andrew Dunlop commented on Jesse's blog post CASA looking into drones in Australia
"Where is this notion that a pilot's licence is to be required to operate a UAS coming from? This is Australia, not the US."

Andrew Dunlop replied to Andrew Tridgell's discussion ArduPlane 2.73 released
"Sound like an absolute nightmare!Also sounds like the only sensible approach to such a difficult problem with the added time constraints that you had!"

Andrew Dunlop replied to Andrew Tridgell's discussion ArduPlane 2.73 released
"I have to second Andrew's remarks about testing devices that have built-in redundancy.  It is time consuming.  If you don't specifically fail all the n-1 redundant pathways and test n times then the device passes despite…"

Andrew Dunlop commented on Charlie's blog post Rescue system/Parachute for multicopters!
"I should add that RS232 is bidirectional, so that the Failsafe can send commands to the Autopilot, if desired.  This is intended to provide a mechanism for sending the vehicle home should one of the triggers be programmed for such an action…"

Andrew Dunlop commented on Charlie's blog post Rescue system/Parachute for multicopters!
"@Randy, Thank you, and it is always VERY useful to hear early feedback, especially from people such as yourself. There are a lot of possible "automatic" triggers for various different actions, apart from the possibility of a direct command…"

Andrew Dunlop commented on Charlie's blog post Rescue system/Parachute for multicopters!
"Hi Randy, I'll chip in a little.  A difficult decision when making an external flight termination device is how much complexity to allow.  Additional features (such as an IMU) do enable features such as you propose, but at the…"

Andrew Dunlop replied to Hugues's discussion NEVER connect a Capacitor backup or voltage protector on APM board
"Can I add my 2c, bearing in mind that I know less than nothing about any APM ever constructed. I suspect the warning to not connect to the +5V pins has nothing to do with the APM, but is simply that the 3 pin connector from the sensor has a…"
