"Thanks Randy. My 4 Year old Daughter is into everything. Have had to lapse a little with playing the devs builds in the park. Have a pix and am looking on adding a second GPS. Maybe the Neo 7 as a redundant backup? Humm.."

Martin Szymanski commented on Todd Harper's blog post FAA Can Make All Drone Flights Illegal, Federal Court Rules.
"Model Rockets will be a thing of the past. Sometimes the parachute does not deploy, and the Lawyers will be ready if a foamy hits you on the head."

Martin Szymanski commented on Joshua's blog post "Drone Users Largely Silent Regarding FAA Rules That May Limit Flights"
"For many that can hear a medical copter and Hospital in a nearby existence it is proper to not fly 50 Ft.  I emphasize not hearing. "

Martin Szymanski commented on Gisela & Joe Noci's blog post Some more Antennae, and when is a BALUN not a BALUN
"I use torroids today to choke emi and rfi as close to the GPS electronics as possible. Sometimes you will have them on ESC pwm leads from manufacturers as well. This helps isolate interference as a filter. Adding a capacitance can further filter out…"

"Just Downloaded 3.1.4  I will erase then align and calibrate fresh. Using the PixHawk I've found that it requires a 400 Hz refresh rate to the ESC's as a mandatory capability to be solid to control the motors with little latency :-)…"

"Your correct. We also don't want a Farday Shield with a outward Resonant antenna lead creeping into the electronics. hehe "

Martin Szymanski replied to Jim Wittstruck's discussion Frustrated in the group ArduCopter User Group
"I place a small torroid with max amount of turns as close to the GPS as possible. Especially doing fpv. Many cameras are known to be noisy."
