at 20km the plane just flies faster (50-60m/s, 13m/s at ground level), and actually the control surfaces are more effective under these conditions!! We underestimated this effect a little bit which led to a roll movement you can see in the…"
"Hi, nice to hear many people are interested in the topic.
Let me add some comments as one of the HABLEG crew members.
Flying from that altitude is a really great experience and a massive challenge. If you get the chance, go for it! Our…"
"People should not think they save buying two dedicated machines in the end with this one...
It is a nice hobby cnc mill (but there are many on the market).
As a 3D printer it might not be nice to use. Speeds are too slow compared to dedicated (belt…"
"Is it just me or does this part of the document contain a "wrong equation"...
- RPA for recreation = model aircraft
- model aircraft community != recreational RPA users != RPA industrie (commercial)
Anyway, I can hardly see a point in…"
"Hi, interesting idea.
Back in my head I did remember something similar. After some search it turnes out it actually was long ago. It is called Keyence Revolutor by a japanese company, which actually also sold mini quadcopter over 20 years…"
nice project, I know the feeling of developing something from scratch to work :-)
Just an advice about the XBee868 from my experience: Take care about the duty cycle with these units. It´s limited to 10% and if you exceed it…"
"Did anyone notice the DO NOT section saying:
"Do not fly closer than 9km from built-up areas"
Ok, this leaves a lot of space in Canada :-) But for many applications it means to ask for an SFOC, doesn´t it?"
"Hey guys, whats the negative attitude about here???
There is a group of researchers showing an experiment using a multicopter. You should use it as a positive example what the technology can be used for... (Even if it´s not Ardupilot :-) And…"
"Did anybody, including the thread starter, even watch the video linked in the post?
The actual "no fly zone" is 1.5 miles with a cone going higher from there to the 5 mile ring.
On smaller airports its 0.6 miles.
Not that I would welcome…"
"Just to put it in perspective:
Over ten years ago, the so called sunrise-sunset competitions (minimum number of flilghts for whole day of electrical flying) were stopped because they were no longer interesting:…"
you are confusing differential GPS and RTK. It has something in common, but to be general, RTK is a method to massively improve precision by measuring carrier phase signals rather then the code, which is normally done. Since the phase returns…"
