Ben replied to J. Christopher Westland's discussion Servo Jitter is caused by Telemetry Module
"Did you experiment with other servo brands ? I've seen users with similar issue but it happened only for precise brands. Maybe some brands are implementing additional filtering caps as you did."

"Regarding the use of Ultimate LRS ( http://www.itluxembourg.lu/site/ ) for the long range RC/telemetry, Jose contacted me to present his project and ask authorization. I agreed, and am happy that he chose ULRS after comparing with the other LRS…"

Ben commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Microsoft AirSim demo at Dronecode leadership meeting
"To me it looks like a concurrent project to DroneCode, MS isn't member of DroneCode, and the article or any other source doesn't mention any link to DroneCode.

Does someone have found this 360 video ?"

Ben commented on TenzinR's blog post Human Flying Drone
"Hmmm, I think it's partially fake.
