"Thanks for your detailed post. I will do some studying up. I have no hope for the Easter bunny. This is one of my back yard patrols. He has an older sibling as well so not much gets past these two. Here he is showing off the unlucky squirrel but has…"
I am on a mission to disrupt the destructive little furry rabbits that are killing my lawn. The dream machine would be a rover that lived on a drive on charger like my rumba does and have some kind of detection system that sees the little bastards…
"Re the frame if you can find someone with a 3d printer locally maybe they can print you a frame. You can get a real nice frame for not much cost in filament. Look on Thingverse for many options. Greg"
I have the OCD that came in the 3dr video kit and I want to know if it is possible to change the color of the text it overlays. I am color blind so some colors contrast much better for me than others. The white is just hard for me to pickup clearly.…
"Hey Brendan, very impressive work. I have a 3dr Y6 with an apm2.6 and recently I purchased me a really great 3d printer and I think I will print up one of your designs. I have a pixhawk controller ready to go and somewhere here I saw someone mention…"
"Dave, I have mounted a FPV camera on my 3dr Y6 but have yet tried flying it using fpv. In my initial setup my video link is not solid. I have a 5.8 system to try out. I love the free beef idea. Maybe cut a deal like 10%. So every 10 steer I find I…"
"Wow Dennis, just the time you have in all your drawings is impressive. You have to love the concept of Kick Starter to help inventors get their great ideas made. I have supported a few myself. I look forward to your post with your test results.
"Thanks for your quick response. I looked at your link and found it very interesting. I didn't see any video or information re you detecting humans and how you did it without IR. The heat signature of a cow would be rather large I would imagine.
I happend to have lunch with a cattle rancher and somehow the topic of flying my Multicopter came up. The rancher immediately perked up and asked if I could fly and find his cattle. They graze on hundreds of acres and then round them up to move…
"I just did a web search re temp that is too hot to touch and this was related to water but they stated 130-135 deg is where it would start to injure your skin so your reading of 130 and it seeming to hot to hold you hand on it may not be that far…"
"I am glad they are helping you out. I have had good experiences with them as well. Re GPS in the house I can usually pickup about 6 sats at my desk in my office where I work on it. This is about 10 feet from the closest window.
"I built the kit originally putting the gps/compass on the top deck. I have recently added the mast. No real reason other than to try it out. I don't really notice any difference either way for my setup. I have not had any breakage problems as I fly…"
