I have read your suggestions for a anti collision system and it sounds like the existing FLARM system...
FLARM is a voluntarily carried, GPS based warning system and very popular in Europe, since it also includes ground based obstecals for…"
I want to apologize for the feelings you expressed above.
In context - the crowd-funding model had - at that time - got a bit ahead of itself, and begun to border on fraud IMO; a fraud that would use DIYdrones as part of it's promotional…"
"Everyone wants a really small footprint with huge carrying capacity, long range, and time on target.
Forget about it.
Efficiency drops by the cube of the airfoil speed;
ducted fans aren't merely inefficient, they are exponentially less…"
"Notably; it's an active transponder, not merely a receiver as in GPS.
The challenge so often is that time of flight at radio frequencies is so expensive; probably because it requires custom IC design - and can't really be…"
"Nice - Always a Teensy fan; never an Ardweeny.
(why - because com ports are bad, but virtual comm ports are worse - they cannot be labelled, predicted, or scanned - the user has to choose the comm port with no knowledge - aka guess. It's BS.)
"Attacking a product because it retains serviceability for multiple applications seems unnecessary.
This would appear to be a reasonable modification of existing ESC designs to improve their performance for Quads; without sacrificing their…"
If you've used the Arduino enough to understand its shortcomings, or perhaps even dared to mention them alloud, be cheered, the gods have heard your prayers - and yes Omilex has been making devboards and breakouts long enough to be a god. This new Arduino…
