Hi All,  I've spent the last couple of weeks hunting around looking for this in my spare time and I just can't find a full bill of materials for the APM 2.5.2 boards. I can get a partial list from…Continue

"Wow that's pretty cool. I've often thought about investigating the cost of a custom carbon monocoque but I'd never even considered the reverse vacuum form style approach you've gone with. "

"There is no law that allows you to "protect" property in the UK that would allow you to discharge a firearm in any threatening manner, we don't have property protection laws like in the US or SA so no he's got no legal excuse. If…"

Chris Norris commented on Patrick Poirier's blog post MINI-Zee: a $100 DIY smart drone with the Pi Zero and APM
"Fair enough, makes sense in that context. I took a look at your BOM last night with one eye on the digikey and RS catalogs and I think this could quickly become the go to stack, ignoring the air frame costs which are an entirely individual choice I…"

"This is really really good, I hadn't even realised that Erle had open sourced their designs. One question though, why wait for the network to come up is this just to ensure GCS connection?"

Chris Norris replied to Noah Dalton's discussion Drone Clearing Snow off Solar Panels
"A variation on that would be to have the panels in a clamshell arrangement that you can unfurl during daylight. I suppose the risk here though is that over night the panels could freeze together. The other thing I thought of was putting the whole…"

"Needed a better camera though, no way there was enough detail there to identify anyone. Needs to go to 4k or maybe a zoom lens. Perhaps if they'd chased the car they could at least have got a number plate, still not bad for a demo run :) "

So this morning's visit to the BBC website was a little confusing. In the same section as they are reviling "drone" photography they post a link titled "Sky Menace" which links to an article explaining when you can and can't fly drones. I'm not sure the word "Menace" is warranted. Am I being paranoid? :)Articles for those who are…See More

Posted on July 28, 2014 at 6:11am 9 Comments

"A nippy microkernel mathematically proven to be bug free*, and used to protect drones from hacking, will be released as open source tomorrow."

Has anyone heard about or seen this? How applicable is this to the Pixhawk, Pi or BeagleBone flight controller efforts? The best bit is that it seems to assure that all user mode code…
