Ben replied to J. Christopher Westland's discussion Servo Jitter is caused by Telemetry Module
"Did you experiment with other servo brands ? I've seen users with similar issue but it happened only for precise brands. Maybe some brands are implementing additional filtering caps as you did."

"Regarding the use of Ultimate LRS ( http://www.itluxembourg.lu/site/ ) for the long range RC/telemetry, Jose contacted me to present his project and ask authorization. I agreed, and am happy that he chose ULRS after comparing with the other LRS…"

" 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…"

Ben commented on Barbara Grant's blog post Deleting my previous post on my UAV imager book
"The question was not only drone vs satellite, but also drone vs plane. I think your list is very good, but I'd add the cost. And if considering a plane, besides the cost there may be some legal restrictions, more risk or complexity to fly in…"
