Fnoop commented on Dr Stephen Prior's blog post New book release: Optimizing Small Multi-Rotor Unmanned Aircraft: A Practical Design Guide
"Good luck with your book, it looks interesting and a useful resource.  Ignore idiot trolls.  You could post it on discuss.ardupilot.org as well, few people come on this site anymore."

Fnoop commented on Mike Isted's blog post First Flight: Intel Realsense D435 on Jetson TX2 UAV
"I think they all have the laser projection, but that's only really useful indoors or at night outdoors (have you tried outdoors in the evening/night?  would be fascinating if you get a result!)

"Interesting, the outdoor performance is way, way better than the R200 so that's positive!  Interesting to see how at the end of the video the two people in the field seemed almost invisible in the depth map yet the copter flying around was quite vis…"

"Most of us are amateurs-in-learning :) (I certainly am).  You can buy a 5v BEC from any drone/hobby shop, as long as it does 2-3a that will take care of anything a raspberry is likely to consume.  A lot of PDB (power distribution boards) for your ES…"
