Scott VanFossen commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Analysis of FAA appeal in the Trappy case: Agency created its own problems
"I think we all should be hopeful that the FAA gets some regs down on the books regarding this. If they don't, it will be left up to the states and you all have seen what kind of nightmare that will bring. If they do require a license, you will…"

Scott VanFossen commented on Mark Harrison's blog post Trappy talks flying, regulation, and starting a business
"Except that he hasn't beaten them yet as there has been an appeal and the regs still stand. Don't get me wrong, I am all for the FAA letting us get on with commercial uses, but don't start telling people that the feds have been beaten…"

Scott VanFossen commented on Chris Anderson's blog post FLIR intrdroduces $350 smartphone IR camera, new low-cost sensor
"Marty, That is the problem with this. It doesn't have a sufficient frame rate to be useable. All you are going to get is a capture every second or so. In other words, it will probably be blurry. Don't get me wrong here guys.. I think…"

"Matthew, I do agree with you that this is a quality multicopter frame. I really do enjoy mine. It is solid and I have made several flights with it in and out of the water and it has performed great.   I haven't tried a battery bigger than…"

Matthew Elyash replied to Scott VanFossen's discussion Problems with Aquacopters. UPDATE
"While I must admit they were indeed slow, I can not agree to the lack of communication or support. Every time I called the number I got Russ. He did not avoid my calls or blow smoke up my bum, but explained what was going on and when he hoped to…"

"Well, after escalating my claim with Paypal, Aquacopters shipped my frame out right away. Got it today and have it up and flying already. Supports the GoPro Hero 2 with the Wi-Fi backpack no problem.   Very stable so far, although I…"

Marque Cornblatt replied to Scott VanFossen's discussion Problems with Aquacopters. Buyer Beware!
"On the most recent version, there is a small vent on the top just above the apm, as well as a covered slot for the USB cable, so it's not truly "airtight".  It does produce a bit of heat inside, but this frame is designed for…"

About Me:

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I currently have an aquacopter and ladybird FPV and they are a blast to fly. I am using ardupilot 2.0 on the aquacopter and it flies very smoothly. My plan for it is to fly a gopro over my kids while they are at rowing practice to get some unique video of them.
