Doug Erickson commented on Chris Anderson's blog post New in the DIY Drones store: the ultimate Xbee adapter
"@Chris: Does the statement "You can even tweak the board to "wirelessly" emulate CTS and RTS signals." mean that wireless programming is achievable? What's the tweak?"

Doug Erickson commented on Mike W's blog post Under Wing Pan/Tilt
"That's sweet. Another nice option is the Pandora Pan & Tilt Kit - $33, add around $40 if you get the recommended servos http://www.dpcav.com/xcart/product.php?productid=16162&cat=0&page=2 a bit more expensive, but clean as a…"

Doug Erickson replied to Peter Ho's discussion Unmanned Boat
"Peter, If you read through this site and others, searching for and, for example, 'NewSoftSerial', 'two-way comm', etc., you'll see that an uplink can be added to the ArduPilot. If you can wait however, I'd agree with…"

Doug Erickson replied to Alex's discussion Cant upload ardupilot 2.4 code?
"Hey guys - Alex shouldn't need to do a manual reset unless he's stepped on his bootloader, should he (with or without a shield, but the shield/software version having an effect IF his GPS IS connected)? Alex - I don't know about code…"

Doug Erickson commented on Jason Short's blog post Ardupilot 2.5 preview part 5
"No, no, I think what you're doing is great! Mine was mostly an idea & sw design comment for code construction. I think you're providing an excellent framework for people to add their specifics. I'll throw out an example tho... my…"

Doug Erickson commented on Jason Short's blog post Ardupilot 2.5 preview part 5
"Great stuff Jason. I haven't moved off of 2.0, but have been integrating components from later versions as they're made available. THANKS! It's awesome to see things become stable enough to move from the basics to 'mission…"

Doug Erickson commented on Jordi Muñoz's blog post How to boost your 2.4Ghz Spektrum/JR Transmitter signal!
"@Jordi - sorry for the question on the side, but I'm remembering posts in the early ArduPilot days of mixing/matching comm links - 72MHz RC, 900MHz XBee & 2.4 GHz video. If you've switched to 2.4 GHz RC link, what are you running for…"

Doug Erickson replied to Ony Arifianto's discussion ArduPilot for multiple UAV ?
"I'll weigh in and say yes to all of the above. Not necessarily easy (but it's only time and money : ), and too much to describe here. But, in a nutshell: A) Gary is right regarding one pilot, one platform. But all this means is that…"

Doug Erickson commented on Paul Marsh's blog post BlimpDuino on Steroids
"Cool stuff Paul. The Raytheon RAID system has been out there for some time with great success, albeit without the altitude and control component (it's tethered). I've heard directly from warfighters that this system provides benefit, even…"

Doug Erickson commented on Paul Mather's blog post ArduIMU Firmware for NMEA with I2C compass heading
"Hey Happy: Maybe your proving that the lack of tilt compensation in the 6352 means that, for angles greater than a degree or so, the compass output algorithm becomes unreliable. But to give it your best shot, I agree with Michael (re: calibration).…"

Doug Erickson commented on Paul Mather's blog post ArduIMU Firmware for NMEA with I2C compass heading
"Ha! Now THAT makes sense (I don't bet against many on this site). I bought the 6352 knowing it didn't have tilt compensation (save $$), so am running a UGV on mostly flat ground. Honeywell does make a tilt-compensated compass, the HMC6343…"

"Hey guys, Awesome work Happy - have a couple of ArduIMU boards but no uBlox, but just playing right now and hadn't crossed the NAV data bridge yet. Thanks. Not sure you air boys care about bearing accuracy/smoothing as much as us UGV guys (we…"
