I just realized I needed the uBlox adapter board for my GPS so I had to pay S&H twice in one day. Not mad at anyone but myself on this one but I want to make sure I have everything I need now: I…Continue
"I can appreciate the benefits of separating the customer support needle from the general posting haystack, but I'm not sure if funneling a thriving and successful community in to an untested and to be brutally honest, generic php-based Ning…"
"VC isn't inherently evil. Some VC is interested in long term growth. I've never contributed a single line of code so I don't really see my opinion as carrying much weight.
I think we can look to Makerbot Industries as a pretty good…"
":/ Isn't there some concern this is going to fragment the community? What is the purpose behind dividing the users between the two sites like this? Now I have to go to twice as many locations to read all DIYDrones content."
"This is a wild looking wing. Any inspiration from the Horten H.IV? It's one of my favorite designs.
I see you've moved the Props closer to center-line of the vehicle from some ealier concept images. What inspire this…"
"I have completed the airframe design and tools. The tools are fiberglass and bondo, but they did the trick for the carbon layup. I used a male mold and vacuumed the carbon on. The surface needed some finishing but came out pretty well. This is…"
"Just picked mine up today! Looks great.
No GPS underwater, so position and velocity are a lot harder to determine. Camera needs a pressure housing(dive light), and the ultrasonic range finder speed of sound is going to be off. But air attenuates…"
"200 miles + 5lbs + autonomous? Any single one of those is hard enough on a $600 budget. The kickstarter should be updated with a proposed bill of materials so viewers can lend constructive criticism and the proposal can be modified to be more…"
"I like this concept as well. The aircraft mode could be greatly improved upon. There are many well developed flying wing designs that would be suitable. The major challenge is with the control of the helicopter mode.
The lack of control in…"
"What I think is novel about this is using the Google Earth API to create a game engine. That's the value I see provided and worth emphasis. The distinction between manned and unmanned vehicles being sort of artificial in a virtual…"
"Open source purity aside, most of my resentment has been based on the fact it has taken over a year for a detailed explanation of these details to become public knowledge. It was pulling teeth to get the information at all and has trickled out only…"
"Have you taken a look at the "I2Cdev" code? He has an arduino sketch made up with no real processing at the atmel side. It uploads the binary linked to above, configures the mpu registers and gets back 6dof fused data. Invensense have been…"
"I'm not so sure. The DMP doesn't seem to have non-volatile memory based on the need to upload a blob of binary on startup, however the I2C version of the code gets quarternion data back from the mpu6000 and its not coming out of thin air.…"
