sending UDB telemetry data over video link + decoding with a video grabber card + showing a virtual cockpit in 3D etc

Started this discussion. Last reply by Ben Aug 3, 2011. 4 Replies

Hi, I did a small project initially for FPV, which is basically a virtual cockpit in 3D, showing data collected from an onboard (remzibi) osd. A video will better describe what it does : …Continue

"And here it seems to be in front of a tree, but if you check the video it's actually behind the tree :"

"On some images, the drone seems to be visible through the trees. For example here its arm is completely visible through the trunk of the tree :"

Ben commented on TenzinR's blog post Human Flying Drone
"Do you think that the 360 video could be fake or that it was legit but the drone was flown in manual mode ? I can't make my opinion on this video : it has every reason to be fake, but it's difficult to find any convincing clue. In…"

"It would be interesting to find the 360 degrees video mentionned in the video. "be sure to check out the 360 version of this video shot entirely on Samsung Gear 360 cameras". Does someone have found this 360 video ?"

Ben commented on TenzinR's blog post Human Flying Drone
"Hmmm, I think it's partially fake. Some scenes are true, like normal skiing with the drone, but some are very likely fake like the flying guy, or even the high speed climb on the hill. *** But to me the biggest clue is that the guy who…"

""The iddea is NOT feasible without complte control system weighting more than around 100g." "ARTECH is rubbish for the task, anything above 100USD is rubbish for the task. HABLEG is rubbish for this task for the same reason Besides…"

Ben commented on Krzysztof Bosak's blog post Forced to publish 2016 ESNC contest entry: Stratos Shuttle – looking for sponsors or investors
"Can you summarize the issue in a few sentences, maybe also explain what's the ESNC contest ? If I understand correctly it's something about innovative ideas and your proposal was rejected for some reason, and you fear that they patent it…"

Ben commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Simulation of a drone/airplane collision
"Intriguing video, at least we've learned something : not sure if it proves that a drone can damage a 747, but it surely proves that a 747 can damage a drone :)"

Ben commented on Jose Luis Cortes's blog post 2 hours and 5 minutes test flight with maximum takeoff weight
"I agree that the main point of the concept is not if it's mono or multirotor, but that it has a very small hybrid engine. That's innovative at least for drones and brings a solution to a real market need. In addition it improves safety by…"

Ben replied to Dronez's discussion 6-7 Hour Flight time over ocean - some questions
"I don't understand the requirement for 6-7 hours flight time : did you fly for 6 hours when para-sailing ? And if the plane can be launched from a boat, can't 1 hour be sufficient to observe the fishes ?"

Ben commented on Andy Osusky's blog post Autonomous Boat to Cross the Atlantic Ocean
" Congrats for this interesting project ! Did you consider trying first on a smaller distance than the ocean ? For example something like the Channel (between UK and France), that's a few tens of kilometers and that a lot of people have…"

Ben replied to Jean-Jacques's discussion Tuning parameters for thermals
"Congrats ! APM is not really optimized for gliders, especially in the auto modes. I'm using it mostly in FBWA mode ( more details here : http://www.itluxembourg.lu/site/soaring-with-apm-and-ultimate-lrs/ ) Regarding your question about…"

Ben commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Intel announces new Aero drone development board based on Dronecode PX4 software
"Maybe slightly out-of-subject, but I'm surprized by the look of the drone. It looks completely unfinished, its main point is clearly to be a proof of concept of the Aero platform. If the Aero alone is $499, the Aero vision is $149, and the…"

Ben replied to Peter Everett's discussion Pixhawk longevity?
"Not to mention the servos, they can just stop working all of a sudden. With APM I will still able to fly without issues without rudder and with only one aileron, but the elevator would be catastrophic. Regarding electronics, normally it…"
