Forrest Frantz commented on Joshua Ott's blog post Iris details: #1 The 4-1 ESC/Power Module
"Thanks.  That just saved another 2.265 grams (cut off most of the red/black small wire since the ship doesn't have a gimbal yet; did save a little wire stub for when one is added).  That reduces the final weight to 6.3 grams per ESC,…"

"Forrest, The parallel power wires are most likely for powering a gimbal. Sounds like the ESCs should stay cool in your setup."

"Oh ... $142.31 with shipping.  So it costs more, but so do light-weight carbon frames."

Forrest Frantz commented on Joshua Ott's blog post Iris details: #1 The 4-1 ESC/Power Module
"That was fast! Voltage says it's parallel to the batteries, which I didn't expect. Naked meant removing the: - heat sink (18.8 gram savings) - heat sink glue  - large power wires and XT60 connector (only need 16 AWG w/ 2mm bullets…"

Joshua Ott commented on Joshua Ott's blog post Iris details: #1 The 4-1 ESC/Power Module
"Forrest, The small red/black circuit is most likely for gimbal power, is it parallel to the battery inputs or 5v? On question 2&3: Yes, Pixhawk Main Out 'S'(1-4) connect to 4-1 Pwm In, and ground wire connects between Pix Main Out…"

"IRIS 4-in-1 ESC Quick Look Just received one.  Hope to highlight it + the Pixhawk on the multi-copter targeted to break the world duration record. For those that are curious, the naked weight is only 37.9 grams.  That's 6.8 grams per…"

Joshua Ott replied to Pedals2Paddles's discussion Gimbal for GoPro inside waterproof case?
"Tamas, Just to be clear, I have no intention of trying to sell this gimbal on its own, as it is quite specific for my airframe. I merely wanted to chime in on this thread and support the idea that using the waterproof GoPro housing as part of a…"

Joshua Ott replied to Pedals2Paddles's discussion Gimbal for GoPro inside waterproof case?
"I'm just designing this for the 3, because of the weight difference the parts would have to be changed to make a Hero2 balance. I'll post a thread showing how it all goes together and include CAD files for the parts. It shouldn't be…"

Cliff-E commented on Joshua Ott's blog post Press Release – FAA to Consider Exemptions for Commercial UAS Movie and TV Production
"Yep. Flying-cam has been in the R/C filming space for the last 10yrs (heck they gotten a technical oscar) and has the most to lose in the US market. Luckily most of they firms have a growing international client base. Reading the request shows a…"

Toby Lankford commented on Joshua Ott's blog post Press Release – FAA to Consider Exemptions for Commercial UAS Movie and TV Production
"They are considering exemptions because they are have already been and are being used for the last couple of decades.  I guess it is better than the scare tactics but it still gives the impression that they are able to control it and so they…"
