Crasher commented on Rob_Lefebvre's blog post Merry Christmas and a Happy New ACRO!
You have to remember that RL hates DJI with a passion you or I could only dream of (check out RCG). The issue would *have* to be DJI, even if it wasn't even on a DJI frame. RL would be convinced that they were mind melding his frame out of…"

Crasher commented on HeliStorm's blog post Micro HD Quadcopter from Hubsan
"With the exception of the original H107v1 (which I found to be horrible to fly) all the later X4's are fantastic little machines. They fly as well as a much bigger machine. They are so cheap they are practically disposable. I have just got my hands…"

Crasher commented on Joshua Johnson's blog post How can DiyDrones surpass RcGroups!?
"All the time DIYD is so 3DR centric and anti the competition, I really don't think it will ever come close to RCG in numbers."

Crasher commented on Crasher's blog post DJI add free waypoint to the Naza and Wookong
"I totally agree RL, Arducopter would be waaaaaaaayyyyyyy more expensive if the software development team had to be fed and watered like DJI, thank you for your tireless efforts.
It is indeed only for V2 Dany, luckily Naza 1 can be upgraded to Naza 2…"

Crasher posted a blog post
I thought some of the 3DR community might be interested in hearing that DJI has recently released firmware upgrades giving “free” waypoint capability to both the Naza and Wookong. The caveat is you will need to buy a Bluetooth data link (approx…

Crasher commented on Ralph Wu's blog post MultiWii Mini with DMS2 RX module
"The link states 7.8g, 70g would be one big circuit board!!"

Crasher commented on Yusuf Pirgali's blog post HD video for UAV's
"You have two things to consider:
1. Video lag. This is likely to be high on cheaper solutions. Even half a second can be the difference between a successful flight and a crash. 
2. Handshake delay. Because the data stream is digital, there may be a…"

Crasher commented on Manfred Dickgiesser's blog post I Wish I Was Excited About The GoPro Camera Craze
"With respect, im amazed you think this is news. Half-baked, buggy products are the norm these days in everything. My brand new and very expensive laptop has so many bugs and flaws (not in the OS, in the laptop itself) it's not even funny."

Crasher commented on Roberto Navoni's blog post What kind of Design do you prefer for your next drone ?

I've looked everywhere for that! Thank-you soo much for posting that link. That really has made my day."

Crasher commented on Roberto Navoni's blog post What kind of Design do you prefer for your next drone ?
"I think the Droidworx CX4 remains one of the "sexiest" production quads available, so you're definately in the right ballpark. 
There was a render on DIYD of a Y6 design concept, it was beautiful! I can't find it now although I've looked. I think it…"

Crasher replied to Greg's discussion Alternative Multicopter Autopilots
"The professional market is pretty much split between DJI Wookong and Mikrokopter, each has a loyal fan base.
For me, DJI products have proven robust, reliable and worked well. They've certainly had their problems (they've had a couple of GPS…"

Crasher replied to HeliDragon's discussion APM 2.5 ArcuCopter 2.9.1 "twitches on it's own"
"I reckon this *might* be ppm encoder glitching.

1. Are you flyingFutaba as that's known to cause a problem in some configurations of 8 channel RX or more.
2. Id upgrade to the latest PPM encoder version (its in the wiki)
3. Im thinking a Dev on…"

Crasher commented on Dany Thivierge's blog post Phantom's a beginner dream (still need wide open area to be safe)
"Oh RL, I love your anti DJI sentiment. You never miss a chance to bring up the single digit perecent of users experiencing problems.

Do you actually own any DJI stuff? Or just comb rcgroups compiling problems :D :D"
