London Calling: UK Multi Rotor Pilots Needed in April

Started this discussion. Last reply by earthpatrol Apr 14, 2014. 3 Replies

UK multi rotor pilots needed the week of April 9-13, 2014. This is a general call for a project in the London area and we are looking for 5-10 pilots to fly multi rotors. A couple of requirements…Continue

earthpatrol commented on Alice Clayton's blog post What is Missile Mode Flight?
"What part of cruise missile and SAM's images makes it past the moderators? Pretty blatant military references that allude to other uses for this design. Simply invert the design, give the missile part the ability to decouple from the lifting…"

earthpatrol commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Swarming with Solos and ROS
"Autonomous multi-MAVs do not require ground stations/off-aircraft computing to fly or achieve their goals. The ground station is a monitoring device for collecting real-time telemetry related to the multi-MAV flight/behavior dynamics. So what…"

"Not really autonomous as per the statement, more like programatic control from an off-board computing device. Sure hope folks can appreciate the difference between true autonomous multi-MAV flights and programatic network controlled…"

earthpatrol commented on earthpatrol's blog post Flying Robot Commander for PaparazziUAV
"@Shane Slater, Yes, Paparazzi UAV has excellent fixed wing support. The Flying Robot Commander is aircraft agnostic as such, so you can use it to control/trigger all kinds of autonomy. Another option is to use FRC with MAVLink. Of course,…"
