So I've been trying unsuccessfully to interface a secondary GPS NMEA stream to my quad with Pixhawk installed. Finally I just connected my terminal program directly to Pixhawk and started sending a single GGA message.Here is a sample message I've…
"@Hugo Chamberland I don't really care that much one way or another. Just communicate advantages of a unit clearly and support it with facts rather than emotions and conjecture. 900 Mhz is not widely accepted by who exactly? (433MHz for Europe)…"
"You increased complexity of the system for no quantifiable gain. Since it is touted as a multi-mile range solution I assume that intent was to improve range of communications. Well let's just try to use math instead of colorful superlatives to see…"
"The technical data is pretty limited, but based on what I see and data available, I don't think it is a "beam shaping 'radio'" As well as the statement on their web site: "high gain beam and keeps it always pointed to the drone control station"…"
"I looked at LoRa modems some time ago. I think Semtech somewhat misrepresent their product. Just like with any other data you have to compare apples to apples, and they make it as hard as possible. Since max power output of Semtech modem is the…"
"Last time I checked US Forest Service didn't regulate airspace. This would be enforceable if they had had FAA amend already existing regulations. Other than that they can try to enforce the rules until the first lawsuit"
"As far as I know none of the telemetry radios on the RC/FPV/"Drone" market (clones or otherwise) had their designs licensed by FCC to operate in ISM band. It doesn't mean that it is not compliant - most of them are of similar design and rely on the…"
"The statement: "The RFD900 is designed to be compliant with the following standards" tells me that they didn't obtain license from FCC for this radio as well. They also say that :"The user is responsible for compliance with local regulations for…"
"HK, got the same hardware and plastic for the most part. It is actually a better design since it doesn't rely on HM-TRP module but it is all done from the ground up. I got the 433 radio from them and made it work on 915Mhz. You pretty much have…"
"Jake, if your goal to have internal zen about your equipment reaching the state of perfection then it is definitely not a waste of time. However if you are trying to improve your radio performance then your experiment failed. Your original…"
I'm so sorry to misquote you. There is really no particular meaning to the combination of "!?" There is a valid combination of "?!" called interrobang designed to convey exclamatory question, like in: "What were you…"
"I confess I didn't read the whole thread but in what I read I didn't find any data about the "spectacular range boost" Seems like an entertaining albeit rather pointless frequency analyzer exercise but I don't think it affects you radio performance…"
"It was long coming and well deserved by him. Not to side with FAA and current rules, which are antiquated for sure and FAA is a slow government behemoth that's not in a hurry to change, but you can not just go out and do whatever the heck you want…"

"But that doesn't mean we feel the need to own or carry weapons privately."
Had your countrymen felt differently about that may be your country haven't been so easily taken over by Nazies back in WWI. As Friedrich Hegel said:…"
"@HeliStorm @SgtRic Nothing you wrote contradicts my statement: " Shotguns don't shoot bullets" Yes you can shoot slugs, you can even shoot razor blades, incinerating round and who knows what else. But you can't shoot bullets. "
