"Gary, did you read the article?
It says they ink a one time deal for each filming. No Idea how they do it but the problems are adressed in the article.
I think filming for movies is not comparable to "certain events" happening around FPV…"
"Will the talks be available online? Or generally more information?
My 1st question at the moment is if there is a toolchain from the pictures taken over crop fields to the input of modern farming machines (be it John Deere, Claas or whatever…"
"Hey, you should read the whole article (and by the way post a matching picture...).
The person interviewed was Emmanuel Previnaire of Flying-Cam. They are using a quite huge helicopter for the big hollywood productions (and doing that…"
why try to make exemptions for a special use (despite the effort it would create huge grey areas, which regulators will not like). My feeling is the differentiation hobby/non-hobby will be in the coming regulations. And its not too bad.
"In general I like the idea. To convince me to back the project I´d like to see some on board footage (HD, which it should be).
Is this shown anywhere? I´m a little sceptical about the placement of the camera. If you try to look forward…"
"Thanks for posting, worth reading the full article.
Especially the part in payload and cost comparison between Cessna and Scaneagle... It really comes down to the one sentence: They are where it makes economic sense for them to be.
"Austin, I´m referring to the airframe in the link I posted about the flight in 2007...
Nothing about the one of the starter of this post.
Blended winds can be effecient, but are not automatically...
"It looks like a typical "we´ve done it first" project. Which is fine from an academic/student/publicity point of view. The video is too much focused on the "great possibilities" stuff for me. More technical data would be…"
"Jason, watching both videos I think its unlikely they used this system for the London flight.
Looked like normally flying Asctec quadrotor precision.. (which is quite good)
- Precision was (sadly) not so good (see the moving…"
"Joshua, Adam, I think here is the one big point that makes the difference.
The difference between hobby rocketry and spaceflight is just soooo much bigger than the difference between a hobby UAV and a Predator (really...).
I think the goal of…"
"Not sure if this is going to work... Some reasons:
- DIY-Drones was founded out of interest, led to a community and then to commercial success. They try to start from the end (probably encouraged by the success story here?) Not sure if a community…"
"David, thanks for the link. Good information.
To everyone thinking about doing the same. Some things to consider:
-Think about the law (flight permissions and radio frequencies). Sadly no info on that...
-Take care with hydrogen (he used for cost…"
probably the term you are missing is "gain sheduling", and here I think your idea with using XFLR5 data could be a good one! So you pre calculate tables with resulting moments from control surface movements. These are dependent…"
"Main sensor seems to be the well known laser scanner... plus camera and LED-lights.
Actually 60$ seems quite cheap to me, regarding the cost of this setup and developement. Is there a (english) reference to that? For that price many researchers…"
