Gordon commented on Nicolai Valenti's blog post 50 MINUTE flight with my cargo drone video (with only a 3s 5200 mah) AND WITHOUT THE CARGO BOX
"Too true Andrew, hard to go past a heli if you need payload, ability to handle wind, endurance and vtol."

Gordon commented on Nicolai Valenti's blog post 50 MINUTE flight with my cargo drone video (with only a 3s 5200 mah) AND WITHOUT THE CARGO BOX
"At 1200g, 50min is feasible, but without the box it is no longer a cargo drone.

From your website "the sandwich drone is a new designed heavy lift drone, with almost one hour of maximum flight time is made to reach every place." This statement is…"

"Nicolai, your saying that Graham has added 280g to your weight. Graham is in fact being generous, you have already stated the weight is 1500g. This means each motor must produce 1500/4=375g just to hover, this does not even allow any extra for…"

Gordon commented on John Arne Birkeland's blog post ArduPilot and DroneCode part ways
"Correct, probably not premeditated, greed tends to creep up. My views have been tarnished from having been in an environment filled with egotistical megalomaniacs for 25yrs before escaping to a much friendlier industry. I tend to become very…"

"@Ernst. What was expected, when a guy quits a high-end job

Couldn't agree more, I knew something was up back when it happened. There was just so much effort being put into getting everyone else to contribute, it reminded me of the basic principals…"

Gordon replied to rrayden's discussion Long Range on 433 Mhz SiK Telemetry
"Your antennas need to be either both vertical or horizontal, any misalignment drastically reduces the range. also note that if they were to be both at, say,  75 degrees, this only works outbound as when the vehicle turns 180, there is now a 30…"

Gordon replied to Doug Adduci's discussion Warning! Don't Try This At Home Kids (radio fail safe test disaster)
"This is a very timely blog. Thanks Doug, for making me do a triple check.
I was going to test this today for the first time ever in 6 years of drones.
Last night I was going through the motions as my Futaba 12fg also does the switch and throttle…"

Gordon commented on Yutaca Sawai's blog post Biomechanical simulation of Horse gaits
"Hi Gary,
I am quite aware of all the various uses for our "flight controller". Just because I post very rarely, does not automatically make me an ignorant newb or someone with nothing worthwhile to contribute.
I wrote the 3 first instructional blogs…"

Gordon commented on Thomas J Coyle III's blog post Which came first, the drone or the PowerEgg?
"At least until they show how the blades actually unfold themselves as in the video, i'm calling BS"

Backed for 2 early birds."

Gordon commented on Mirko Denecke's blog post BBBMINI a Linux autopilot based on ArduPilot and BeagleBone Black
"+1 for Gary. It's not just the price. 55 euro freight to Australia is insane for a cape. That works out to over AUD$350 landed at my door. I have 2 BBB's gather dust since Feb 2014. When I first saw the price, it looked to me like the price was not…"

Gordon replied to Joe's discussion Need a flight control board...
"What a disappointment.
The Beagle Bone Black and Fire Cape combo had me all excited back in feb 2014, so I bought 2 BBB's in anticipation.

Today I find out the cape is finally available from Erle-Brain, but at the premium price of 199 euros, plus…"

Just wondering if you've done a TT vs Belt drive vibe comparison."
