"It seems like sticking camera lenses out on stalks, as first points of contact, is probably not a good idea. Evolutionary biology chose not to put eyeballs on a lifeforms hands and feet for good reason. I also agree with the majority of folks that…"

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,…"

"@Shane Re Linux I would get hold of a cheap PC or Netbook and run Ubuntu on it.( or even a Raspberry Pi) Do a little reading before you buy  and It should work out of the box. Linux got a lot easier over the last few years. And for DIY there is…"

"@titeuf007, if you are familiar with ENAC in Toulouse, that is where Paparzzi UAV started back in 2003. It's very advanced and yes, you can use GPS as well as variant kinds of telemetry radios, different autopilots are supported, etc....…"

"@andy_little the Lisa/MX has the voltage divider circuit built into it. I use both the Elle0 and the Lisa/MX and having the divider on-board or off-board doesn't really cause me any issues. It just means I need to be more aware of how I use the…"

earthpatrol commented on Piotr Esden-Tempski's blog post Elle0 Paparazzi UAV Autopilot Introduction
"Great job @esden. I really like how the GPS integrates with the Autopilot. I've also noticed better GPS performance when using the newer G0 design. The quality is top notch. Spoiler Alert: Can't wait to try the new telemetry modules as…"
