Edward Sellars commented on Echo G's blog post EDIT: Get assembled smart batteries on Kickstarter Campaign
"I agree on the can and Hall effect sensor definitely. CAN makes way more sense given the very thing that easily disrupts the i2c bus is essentially what is being monitored so I don’t know why it wasn’t used... same with a Hall effect sensor. That’s…"

Edward Sellars commented on Echo G's blog post EDIT: Get assembled smart batteries on Kickstarter Campaign
"@lot if you want it open sourced so badly, go make one and open source it. This guy took the time and resources to make this and it doesn’t exist anywhere. So what’s the problem with that that he wants to make what will likely be not very much money…"

Edward Sellars commented on Pedro Matabuena's blog post Coming soon - New "mRo Location One" a CAN GPS sensor.
"Thanks Pedro!

Thomas I just looked at the drotek site and theirs isn’t CAN based so that’s a step back from the MRO one but I hope there is an mro can only unit.

As for the MMC5883, that’s pretty interesting except I’ve had nothing but problems wi…"

Edward Sellars commented on Pedro Matabuena's blog post Coming soon - New "mRo Location One" a CAN GPS sensor.
"What are the dimensions, price and will this work with PX4 and Ardupilot? Are there any log comparisons of the RM3100 vs any other mag to look how much better the RM3100 is? Have you noticed (anecdotal or otherwise) if this mag is much less suscepti…"

Edward Sellars commented on yangdaonline's blog post FW-250 Fixed Wing VTOL Plane With 2 Hours Endurance
"I know it well! You’re the one who deleted my comment and I’m totally wrong about the name but that’s the only thing. It’s the foxtech baby shark, not nimbus and it is junk. Look what it’s made up of and the components. It looks like an aesthetic co…"

Edward Sellars replied to Seppo's discussion RFD900, RFD900+ - New long range radio modem
"I have one 900+ unit and one 900x. I cant get the 900x to talk to my 900+. I've tried all sorts of firwares, etc? Can anyone help or are they simply not compatible? The newest 2 900x firmwares say they will not work with older versions of the SIK fi…"

Edward Sellars replied to Fixxer's discussion Pixhawk 4 experience(s)
"I have a pixhawk 4 as well. Definitely like it more than my cube. Wires is great (forget the power brick, that’s a mess, use something else) but the initself is slim reliable and I think you’re right. Holybro was probably just tooled up to do it. Th…"

Edward Sellars commented on Zubax Robotics's blog post UAV Electric Propulsion System Survey
"It says that these are 30 amp continuous and 50 amp burst. Does that mean that at 6s I can still hit 50 amp burst since that would be close to 1300 watts? I’m thinking things like takeoff or whatnot where I’m at full throttle for 10-30 seconds. "

Edward Sellars commented on Echo G's blog post Low current drain battery monitor with pixhawk interface (10 cell)
"Im in for sure when there is a can version. Anything but i2c. Start plotting large amounts of data and see what type of noise creeps in through i2c. Just a bad interface. Uart is much better if those are the only options but with something having ba…"

Edward Sellars commented on Echo G's blog post Low current drain battery monitor with pixhawk interface (10 cell)
"Totally interested except a few unanswered things. What type of testing and support have you done in the firmware side, i2c really is not the way to go on this. Too many problems and with current and magnetic interference going around so that’s not…"

Edward Sellars replied to Eben N. Broadbent's discussion Terrain and return home and joystick control in UgCS
"This will do the trick. https://github.com/PX4/Firmware/pull/5745

Backtracks the rtl along the same path so no mucking around with altitudes. Should be ground software independent.

What vehicles are you flying with and what hardware/stacks?"

Edward Sellars replied to Randy's discussion figuring out the Antenna Tracker
"@Randy @Craig thanks for the answer regarding using this with the px4 stack a few months back but I think I not understanding something. If my tracker is communicating via telemetry and has its own GPS why does it matter if my gcs is qgroundcontrol…"

Edward Sellars replied to Randy's discussion figuring out the Antenna Tracker
"Would this work if I'm flying with the px4 flight stack as well? If it's just Mav required then I think so but was curious."
