Nacol-Ducted-Fan-Quad

"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…"

bGatti commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Radio-based position tracking works indoors and out
"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…"

bGatti commented on John Arne Birkeland's blog post Teensy 3.0
"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.) "

bGatti commented on Mark Harrison's blog post Interesting quad-specific power-train parts at Hobby King
"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…"

Arduino has been pwned by Olimex

Posted on November 14, 2011 at 5:01pm 11 Comments

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…
