"Since the 50-plane mission, we've been focusing less on numbers and more on tactics. You can find some aerial video highlights from a recent event with aerial combat between two teams of 10 aircraft here: https://youtu.be/6LyUe7Y4uxc Here we…"

"Thanks Pat! That adapter looks similar to what we used. I can't speak to the current state of HIL in ArduPilot, but I'm a proponent of SITL and HIL testing in general and I'm sure there are some folks on this site that have more…"

"Thanks Mike! Also great job on the demonstation, I'm working on a multiplane fixed-wing demo as well. I previously was thinking about this wifi adapter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0035GWTKK/ . How does this compare with the…"

"Dear Kevin! You're right, Silvio misunderstood my question. I was very glad to see that someone is thinking into the same side as me: «The primary purpose of the PCB is to minimize the rat's nest of wiring that is usually required…"

"I think there may be some confusion between Sergii's question and Silvio's response. The PCB we use is not the Odroid, but the Odroid is mounted to the PCB and is powered by the PCB. The PCB is special purpose, specifically to fit our…"

"@Sergii - The PCB is a custom design that we developed; I think there is a plan to post a description with the CAD files online at some point. Great question about the USB-UART; we decided on that because there wasn't an easy-to-use 1.8v…"

"@Chris - Point taken and apologies to Tom if he took any offence. I don't want to take anything away from the very impressive accomplishment as it's very very cool. Then again, I'm a US Air Force brat (meaning I grew up in an Air…"
