"I see. Your price is fair enough. Good luck. It is a niche product. But I would think it would be great as a backup for someone that already has one."

Marc Dornan commented on Gary McCray's blog post Sony RX0 for $700.00 looks way better than GoPro
"Takes nice pics by the looks of it. Video only 1080 but it does output uncompressed 4k video that can be recorded externally, So not much good. Maybe they can improve that with firmware updates."

Marc Dornan commented on Phillip Kocmoud's blog post Introducing the AUAV X2.1 Flight Controller
"The X2.1 has a lot more I/O options. It is pin compatible with a Pixhawk 1. For example Pixracer has only 6PWM outputs. It is for more 'serious' DIY applications. Maybe Jordi can start a brand new thread with a better breakdown and…"

Marc Dornan commented on Dino Mehanovic's blog post Drone Landing Autonomously on Walls
"That is just fantastic work. Well done. How easily would a serious gust of wind dislodge a perched UAV? In other words do you need a calm environment. Also, I imagine that this could be easily adapted to allow landing in tight spaces -- probably a…"

"Nitin - the post needed to explain better the fact that you are getting a $300 commercial developer license with the raspberry Pi 3 and peripherals. I had to figure that out. Marketing 101. Spell out the value proposition! A $450 value purchased…"

Marc Dornan replied to Anton Vanhoucke's discussion My Ranger 757-3 build with Navio2
"For what it is worth ULRS has worked well for me (after a few recent issues). I do wish Benoit would open it up though...but it does not affect me as I have no wish to play with that firmware. Telemetry has been good and ditto bluetooth. Not sure…"
