Jesse commented on Dan Murray's blog post Interest Groups Simultaneously File Three Lawsuits Challenging FAA's UAV Interpretation
"Stuff like this makes me glad I no longer work for the FAA (former ATC). Changes to rules and regs that just don't make sense. Very frustrating."

Jesse commented on Bob's blog post Man Creates Flying Hexacopter Drone With 3Doodler 3D Printing Pen
"Looks like a step-up from using toothpicks and hot glue. I'm still lost about the practical purposes of this 'pen'. It takes a lot man-power to create something, and lacks any of the precision and automation afforded by cheap 3D…"

Jesse commented on Adrián Nagy Hinst's blog post First 480 size heli drone designed for FPV and aerial purposes - LOOKING FOR SPONSORS
"I love that SolidWorks model. I actually thought it was a prototype before I read further and saw it was just a render. The direct-drive tail makes total sense, good call there. Have you considered raising funds through a crowdfunding site like…"

I have almost finished the code for navigation calculations. I am finally working on PIC18F2685. The navigation algorithm uses floating point math which my C compiler supports. I am getting an accuracy of +-1deg for bearing calculation if compared to the Haversine method.

A simple INS - the beginnings

Posted on June 16, 2011 at 11:28pm 5 Comments

I'm building my own inertial navigation system --- one that isn't super complex, doesn't involve fancy filters, yet will provide plenty of accuracy. It's all about purposeful building... designing and building for what it WILL do, not what it MIGHT or could possibly be able to do.
