Foxzilla commented on Melih Karakelle's blog post Weird story about Google/Nest and Hardware bricking
"I can't figure out from the information provided whether they are simply shutting down the cloud services or actually making changes to the hardware (which is how I understand "bricking"). Anyway, this is why I always check that all my automation ha…"

Foxzilla commented on Craig Elder's blog post Pirates! UAV Solutions violates Open Source Licenses
"I think some confusion could have been avoided if the blog post mentioned - who else than Craig supported this action and their position within the community - how was UAVS given a chance to defend and to correct their actions (ie. who contacted the…"

Foxzilla commented on Chris Anderson's blog post New service to "take control of reckless or malicious drones"
"I mean basic stuff like attacking the protocol, scrambling the signals, fooling the sensors etc. There's only that many options how this can be achieved (that I can think of). Maybe by understanding the limitations of the tech, people will fly more…"

Foxzilla commented on Chris Anderson's blog post New service to "take control of reckless or malicious drones"
"I wish some technical explanation would be posted with these kind of articles. Many people seem to not know how or why this is possible and when it might or might not work. Why not educate the public?"

Foxzilla commented on microuav's blog post Hijacking drones with a MAVLink exploit
"Ugh, not a design flaw. Like already said before, this isn't a hack/exploit, it's a feature of the MAVLink protocol that can be used for malicious purposes. It's a good thing that this (=current implementation of control links as a whole) gets more…"

Foxzilla commented on Martin Rüedi's blog post EASA European regulation proposal
"temporary dynamic geo fencing e.g. to "create a safe bubble around a rescue helicopter when landing at the accident site"...

That's actually a pretty cool idea. Automatic avoidance of manned aircraft. Has this been under consideration for any drone…"

Foxzilla commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Pixhawk-powered solar plane sets new endurance record: 81 hours!
"So cool! Does anyone know what the difference between PX4 stack and APM are (completely separate projects, I assume)?"

"Hi, any progress with the international shipping?"

Foxzilla replied to Foxzilla's discussion What does the red arrow mean in Flight Data screen map?
"Thanks, that clears it up! Is there a way I can nudge the wiki writers to maybe add this in? Or just wait?"

Didn't find documentation for this. In the attachment, there is no arrow, but once flying, it changes to arrow and the number grows. mission planner red arrow.PNG

Foxzilla replied to Foxzilla's discussion Auto Analysis doesn't work?
"Yes, smaller files do work. I didn't have many files to test right now, but 40MB doesn't work either. 10MB is a pretty short flight (at least with a plane) with Pixhawk default log settings. Maybe some kind of error message would do better than noth…"

Foxzilla replied to Graham Dyer's discussion APM:Plane, odd warning sound - no messages?
"Hmm it could be that (I definitely lost RC signal a few times), although when I just tested this by turning my transmitter off, the Pixhawk first beeps a deeper tone and then a higher tone similar to the one on my video, but faster. Maybe the video…"

(different from http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/auto-analysis-may-not-be-function...)Whenever I try to use the Auto Analysis in Mission Planner (tried 1.3.27, 1.3.27.1 and whatever comes before 1.3.27) the Planner immediately goes int…

Foxzilla replied to Graham Dyer's discussion APM:Plane, odd warning sound - no messages?
"Speaking of odd sounds, here's another one I can't figure out. Noticed this today and happened quite a few times during the flight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acUk1WFNAbU

With the same 3.2.3 firmware."

Foxzilla replied to Graham Dyer's discussion APM:Plane, odd warning sound - no messages?
"I'm getting this same thing with 3.2.3. Seems to always happen when Pixhawk is moved. Will try to adjust the min PWM later just to be sure it's not coming from the ESC, but since Graham already did that.."

Foxzilla commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post APM:Plane 3.3.0 released
"What is the primary place for changelogs? I'm having hard time finding them from the wiki or github."
