"it's been a few years since I've had to deal with export restrictions, but as I recall, as an individual leaving the country on holidays you should not have "export restrictions" placed on carrying your personal UAV across the…"

Jani Hirvinen commented on Jesse's blog post Next Generation of Ground Station
"you mind share your LCD's technical details? As most of what we have been testing are not so visible in daylight and we have been testing several displays between 250 nits to 450 nits (cd/m2) for our highluminance groundstations we are using…"

Frenchguy commented on Jesse's blog post Next Generation of Ground Station
"I imagine that all of the Ardustation Mega features were forked in the initial Ardustation 3 (and later rewritten mostly, I think) at the time. I feel the TFT/LCD screen I have selected is quite visible in the daylight."

Jani Hirvinen commented on Jesse's blog post Next Generation of Ground Station
"Yes, there is already rather good software originally written by Colin for ArduStaton Mega. That could be transferred to Ardustation 3 rather quickly. We have already several touch screens working but main problem on those screens is that they are…"

Frenchguy commented on Jesse's blog post Next Generation of Ground Station
"Anyone else interested in collaborating on Ardustation3? It seems Jesse is pretty busy with other stuff. I feel that for <$50 + GPS ($40?) / telemetry ($25?) and a 3D enclsure we could get something quite amazing going. "

Jesse replied to Thomas Rutter's discussion Arducopter or Russian Roulette?

Jesse commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Lifeguard drone goes from concept to prototype

Jesse commented on Kevin Hester's blog post Textbook delivery by drone in Australia?
"I'd like to see how far they can fly a text book on a drone... return... with current tech I daresay that it'd be limited to 'down the street' delivery radius... that seriously limits your customer base... "

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I'm really interested in the 'flying robot' concept. beginning with a jdrones Hexa, but ultimately plan to try a long distance flight with a petrol two stroke plane (CASA permitting of course)

Monstor Rover

Posted on September 8, 2013 at 5:28am 21 Comments

My current project: a Large rover!  I have found a cheap dis-used electric wheelchair on eBay, removed the "chair" and all of the electronics, created a power distribution system behind the battery pack based around an arduino Uno, two 8 channel relay modules, and two 15A step-down converters for 12v and…


CASA looking into drones in Australia

Posted on May 29, 2013 at 6:00am 20 Comments

I copied this from a news article on nineMSN (link to article below)... Once again the key concern appears to be people looking into other peoples back yards... I haven't seen anyone draw attention to the potential danger in having a cowboy crash into a crowd, into traffic or destroy property...…


Thermopile Arrays

Posted on February 2, 2013 at 4:00am 11 Comments

In searching for sensors to use with the Arduino, looking for something new to play with I discovered a 16x4 Thermopile array, a bit of a search revealed a manufacturer that makes a 32x31 array, these may well be within the reach of the hobbyist, giving us a way to add thermal imaging to our…


Stronger landing gear

Posted on January 1, 2013 at 3:30am 0 Comments

After tearing through countless quantities of landing legs on my drone I decided to make my own, somewhat stronger than the original legs.  Through years of modifying cars I have learnt (the hard way!!) that when you make something stronger, there's always something else in the chain that will fail.  So with…
