Re-posting this because I think the original is in the wrong forum:The short video above is me losing control of my plane. I have a theory of what happened, but I'm not sure. Could I please get a…Continue

"Also, you've earned back my YouTube subscription. I was probably one of the first subscribers to your channel, but I unsubscribed a while ago. (I forget exactly when; Nick was still in front of the camera almost every episode.) When I figured…"

"Hey Trent, I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this, But I can never see any of the videos you've embedded anywhere on the internet. I think it has something to do with the old-style embed code you use. I can make the videos show up…"

Jonathan Price commented on Joe Renteria's blog post The end of gimbals?
"@R_Lefebvre: The closest thing available to hobbyists is the Panono, but it currently only takes stills. I can't imagine the CPU that can capture video at 108 megapixels and still launch in my Bixler."

"I agree it would be nice to have a hobby version of the Google Street View camera array or the Gorgon Stare, but I don't think this camera is it, yet. The sensor is only claimed to be 1500×1500 px, and the geometry of projecting a…"

Jonathan Price replied to Richard Thompson's discussion Problem configuring throttle failsafe in the group ArduPlane User Group
"I had the same problem with APM 2.5 and the stock 9X receiver, except all channels were freezing, not just one. I found that the fix was to upgrade the firmware on the PPM encoder (built into the APM)."

Klaus Kreis commented on Jonathan Price's blog post HobbyKing Selling ArduPilot Parts
"I received a replacement from hk after about 3 weeks. They asked me for some pictures (I did sent screenshots from the terminal window with the apm panic messages). They offered me a replacement apm after looking at the messages, so I am satisfied."

"Oh, sorry.  I thought it was a problem."

Jonathan Price replied to Keshan Dass's discussion Help with level problem in the group ArduPlane User Group
"If it happens in manual mode then that means there is something wrong with the airframe itself. Check for loose control surfaces. If it is a very fast flutter that happens at high speed, slow down. This can destroy your plane in very short…"

Jonathan Price replied to Johnny Faber's discussion Feature request: Single switch mode cycling in the group ArduPlane User Group
"That's not really my cup of tea (too easy to get lost in the list, slow to jump between non-adjacent modes) but both this and your other feature request could be accomplished with a ground station and a little scripting."

Jonathan Price commented on Jeff Vyduna's blog post Tragic RC Helicopter Death in Brooklyn Park
"@Zedtwitz: No disrespect to Roman or his family. As I mentioned, I wish he had crashed into something inanimate. It would have been an expensive lesson in responsibility that just grounded him for a while, eventually making a better pilot. This was…"

iskess replied to Jonathan Price's discussion APM 2.5 PPM Encoder Problem? in the group ArduPlane User Group
"You don't need the power module. Just power the input side with a 5v UBEC, and power the output side with another power source for the servos. Be sure the jumper is removed. There will be no reverse polarity protection on the input side so be…"

Jonathan Price commented on Jeff Vyduna's blog post Tragic RC Helicopter Death in Brooklyn Park
"I hate to say it, but if you watch the video that headlines the WSJ article (the victim flying his QAV500) a few things are obvious: The craft is badly tuned, bordering on being out-of-control. One or more of the motor bearings are loud enough to…"

"The Washington Post has some more reporting on this. Apparently "four or five" people were injured. http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/drone-crashes-into-virginia-bull-run-crowd/2013/08/26/424e0b9e-0e00-11e3-85b6-d27422650fd5_story.html"
