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

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

" 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 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…"

"Very nice review, just a suggestion for the power supply ripple amplitude and frequency measurement : an oscilloscope would be useful for precise measurement. (I'd be surprized if their switching frequency was in the 7 kHz range as shown on the…"

Ben commented on Gary Mortimer's blog post Europe canes America in drone delivery race
"At least it's fun to see the small steps towards any practical use in real world. It's a bit like living at the times of the first planes and seeing some concepts (such as biplanes) come and then disappear. This added to the fact that the…"
