Phill Scott commented on Phill Scott's blog post MAAXX Europe UAV 'Racing'
"Yeah, I think so.  I'm not a software/programmer - I prefer hardware and flying, but I think I'm going to give this a go.  On the face of it, it seems 'easy' but I think it's going to have it's…"

"Made a small mistake - the Track envelope is 27m x 2! (25m straights, spaced 2m apart joined with constant (1m) radius curves at each end (hence 27m!))"

Phill Scott commented on NiMA Asghari's blog post Airbus Cargo Drone Challenge submission phase ended, here are a few highlights
"You know, thinking about it, I'm yet to see anything about using helicopters to move cargo in a UAV context - maybe it might be worthwhile doing a design exercise to raise the profile of cargo moving helicopters? I'd be interested in…"

Phill Scott commented on NiMA Asghari's blog post Airbus Cargo Drone Challenge submission phase ended, here are a few highlights
"Rob, I do agree with your statement.  But, up until the point of instant terminal effects, I want a system that is as safe as possible - and reasonable.  The safest thing to do is to not fly, that isn't reasonable in this context, so,…"

Phill Scott replied to Matthew Reimer's discussion Apm Rover in tractor setup. in the group ArduRover User Group
"That's quite the RC vehicle you're going to have! Hope you've got a big red button in there just in case!  I am looking at a self designed RC mule type vehicle rather than converting a full size product, but am keen to see what…"

"Hey LD - great piece of kit.  My start-up is working to enable this kind of system over the next 3 months for aerial vehicles."

"Bill - hows it going? I'll have my CNC router next week, so I'm starting to look at what my device might look like.  I've got a few people who are interested in working on this kind of thing.  I think we'll be a while…"

Phill Scott commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Using LIDAR-Lite to sweep an arc for sense-and-avoid
"Mark, Neato was developed for indoor use really.  You wouldn't be able to get reliable results outdoors with a UAV.  The system itself is very simple, there would be no problems getting a system suitable for outdoors to use…"

"Looking good Bill. Only thing that jumps to mind is to check that you have set these up so that the sensor detection faces are the same distance away from the centre of the plate so that you don't have an offset problem in your…"

"My LIDAR Lite arrived today.  I haven't ordered the CNC machine yet so I'm going to concentrate on trying to run some tests with the LL this weekend."

Phill Scott replied to RoboBill's discussion Contributing to giving sight to AV's in the group ArduRover User Group
"Only passing power/ground through the slip ring would be a good idea.  I thought I could see you had a suppressor on the lines? perhaps they were different lines to the motor.  Had my LL confirmed as in the post and had a good chat with…"

Phill Scott replied to RoboBill's discussion Contributing to giving sight to AV's in the group ArduRover User Group
"Okeydoke, just wondered since altho you put a supressor on the wires, you are pretty close to the motor. Noise due to the contacts in the slip ring was my main concern aboug using them. I might stay away and just sweep back and forth."

About Me:
I'm an aerospace structures engineer with a strong interest in flight simulation and novel UAVs
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I'm very interested in the production of small sized UAVs. Where possible I'd be looking for novel solutions in order to test them out. Coanda flows are a strong area of interest for me.

(image taken from the aeroSee website)

The aeroSee project had its inaugural trial mission on the 25th July 2013. I signed up and spent an hour reviewing pictures as they came in.

I had read the BBC article posted on the 16th of July, about the project and thought it…
