"Any more info available regarding the Catapult, Parachute system, Servo covers and flight performance from the kickstarted participants? I'm looking to place an order for two airframes and a couple spare fuselages, but would love to hear some…"
"Contact Jeff Jackson at InfiniteJib.com. He has exactly what you're looking for, and carries the new FLIR A series HD cameras. Tell him Patrick sent you, he'll take good care of your needs.
"I'm in for a pair if this moves forward….. X8 carbon Kickstarter Campaign??
As opposed to "Just" an x8, it would be great to compile all the mods and custom revisions into an open source file; things like:
"It shouldn't be a problem, there's been a few flights around 1.5 hours, including this one:
With a little weather/flight planning and a good 3s setup, 100k should be attainable. If you're going for ultra endurance,…"
"There's supposed to be a smaller FOV version of this same sensor released at some point from what I heard from Max, the original guy that did the cheap thermocam. With the smaller FOV, it'll help narrow things down a bit but I don't…"

That's the point. By overlaying thermal and visual images, a low res (cheap) thermal imager can be used. The relatively high res visual image maintains a context for the coarse thermal image. This is not meant to be a night vision device,…"
Hey Patch, I was wondering if you were in Toronto these days, I'm trying really hard to make my quad fly with no success, everything works perfectly: GPS lock, xbee, radio modes, battery cells measurement, ESC calibration, compass, sonar.... I'm stuck at PID's, the copter takes off in a very sluggish way, no matter how I tweak the PID's I always end in a crash, so I thought I might as well pay someone for their time and save money on propellers. (Also save time in balancing them)
Please let me know if you are available. I am at Dufferin and Bloor, but if you want I can take all my gear to you. My phone number is 905 616 8482 (not long distance; Mississauga). As I said, I'm willing to pay for your time. All I want is to have the quad flying.
Please help me out!
