Wayne Dancer commented on Shannon Morrisey's blog post UAV Civilian Market Roundtable
"I personally know someone who has been fighting for regulations changes for UAVs since the early 90's.  He has pretty much given up hope of ever getting things to move."

Wayne Dancer commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Finally: replace just the bent shaft, not the entire motor
"I do this to my GWS brushless motors all the time.  The replacement shaft come with the hex key you need to replace them.  I have a large Thunder Power brushless I am having a hard time finding a replacement shaft and I will need to get a…"

"I think looking at bird speeds in different environments will give you a pretty good estimation.  As for the photo, I really hope the siding on my house isn't that weak :O  Was it just chicken wire and stucco with no backing or what?"

Scott Harris commented on Wayne Dancer's blog post Single Sensor For Static and Dynamic Pressure
"The static/dynamics terms in this case refer to the sensor bandwidth (i.e. DC-100 kHz), not to any ability of the sensor to measure static pressure and stagnation pressure simultaneously. You would still need two of these to make a pitot tube."

DIY Radio Altimeter ::Updated::

Posted on December 3, 2010 at 3:30pm 4 Comments





Here is a DIY radio altimeter designed by Matjaž Vidmar. It is a good start for anyone looking at a non-GPS method of finding altitude while landing.



There are no schematics or source code available on the site, but it is a good design reference and it does give the…

Electronic Valve and Ignition Timing For Model Gas Engines

Posted on June 25, 2009 at 10:22am 1 Comment

Via Hack-A-Day, here is an electronically controlled RC gas engine. With more development, this could lead to more efficient RC engines by skipping power cycles. This would allow longer flight times while at cruising… Continue

Biological Dangers to Drones

With more and more small drones being put into the air by the military, companies, individuals like us we will start to see more incidents like this one;



Raptor attack! from Billwhit on Vimeo.



Granted, the owner of this RC plane also designed it to look like a hawk, but the military will probably start to camouflage small drones to look like… Continue
