"Fantastic! I dont't know about the graffiti but how about a Drone that was programmed to paint your house. Maybe it could even get its power and paint via a tube to the ground so that it could stay up until the job is done. I could see a lot of use…"
Best of luck with URUS for the future. It is great that someone is keeping the classic APM ArduPilot code and boards alive. I used to have great fun with Ardupilot both flying and hacking on my APM2.
"Lovely looking plane.
The issue on takeoff on the maiden flight looks like a classic tip-stall, where the air stalls on one wing only with the result as here. It is usually unrecoverable unless you have a lot of height. Tip stall is a problem that…"
"I forgot to add. There is also a GUI, that was used to make the Youtube video: https://github.com/kwikius/mixer_gui
but it is very rough and just really for my own use, so it wont build out of the box, many things such as file paths are hardcoded…"
Once upon a time RC control of an aircraft consisted of a Transmitter with a single button. Your aircraft had a rudder only. Hit the button once to go left, twice to go right.Increasingly RC transmitters offered more functionality with different…
""You can makes some really nifty looking things with 3D printing, they just aren't good for anything.
One of the 3D printer companies makes its plastic injection gears and a bunch of the parts for it's printers on 100 of it's printers. Personally I…"
"Nice. I really like the E-flite Convergence config for VTOL. I also like the simplicity of customisation of the PX4, which allows to get custom configurations like this up and running realtively simply"
"I'm no fan of NuttX, but I think the Nuttx concept is a Unix like system on a microcontroller. I dont see any barrier to porting it to different hardware. As to whether Posix is a good basis for an RTOS, probably not, though it is in use in most…"
"At least it is not just another wing. The ability to break cleanly on crashing looks different. I wonder how much weight it adds though. As people are discovering, to fly fast it is all about lightness!
I also suspect that once the wings have…"
