Alex gee commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Raspberry Pi-based AI autopilot beats human top gun in simulated dogfight
"Beside the point but I can stop thinking: If only we could get enough FPV cameras linked up to fill up the FOV of that simulator!"

Alex gee commented on Attila's blog post Flyboard® Air Test
"Presumably the EDFs are meant to be for yaw control?Something like this would have to use thrust vectoring for stability wouldn't it? It doesn't seem like the moment arm would be sufficient for differential thrust for such a high CG?"

Alex gee commented on Mustafa TULU's blog post All new Hubsan H107D+ With Alt. Hold.
"So this has on board recording + FPV?It looks like the USB port is on the flight controller, is there just one other board for FPV/video recording?It looks like they've finally put a wide angle lens on the camera too."

Alex gee commented on Benoît Courty's blog post DIY Mimic - Or how to have fun with IMU and Arduino on ground
"Do you know if the lag in the gimbal movement  compared to the IMU on the Tx due to the gimbal's smoothing of the movement or is it a limitation of the components/software ?I have considered building up a setup like this for headtracking but was…"

Alex gee commented on Laser Developer's blog post Wide angle laser beams for anti-collision
"I have been using sonars for just this purpose, having high refresh rates with low processing power.The problem with trying to scan using a narrow beam sensor is that the overall refresh rate will be way too small for reactive (or reflex)…"

Alex gee commented on Chris Anderson's blog post "eBumper" sense-and-avoid add-on for drones
"One could set up the module to monitor the mode switch to either adjust or shut down the obstacle avoidance but that does feel a little clunky. That said, I have had some success with my copter even in acro/stabilise on the KK2.0 but the downwards…"

Alex gee commented on Chris Anderson's blog post "eBumper" sense-and-avoid add-on for drones
"Have you found that it's something that you can just throw on a different copter and expect to it to work?I also went down the route of intercepting input controls (although we initially started with PWM so selected channels could physically bypass…"

"I'd assume that laser is considerably more expensive then the sonars though? It'd be really nice to see this technology fall into the same sort of price range as the various 3DR components for example, from a hobbyist's perspective anyway ;)"
