"Hi Eugene, you may investigate -- as Jordan hinted at -- dead reckoning. It would be enough to fly over their airspace (combined with RF shielding). Have a look at the inertial nav code in the APM code -…"
"This is worse than expected -- even a bit ridiculous. How could it have "flown at 150km/h" when the PID is so wrong at 10cm/s speed? What's up with those PIDs? What's up with the piloting level beginner skills at slow speed? And what's up with those…"
"... I'm joining Mark and am also wondering how you got to that 150km/h max advertised speed -- "marketing" can backfire! Managed around max 120km/h with both a 225 and 280 setup (on both 2204 and 1806 motors) with 5x4x3 in the 600g AUW range and a…"
"If it wasn't for you, Marco, posting this, I would dismiss this immediately: the image we get does not come from 'Lily', but from a gimballed platform. Clever shots, never an operator seen anywhere. Have they already achieved better digital…"
"Hi Thomas, awesome work and greatly illustrated website: congrats. I have a few questions:
- will you implement modulation signatures? Say I have multiple beacons spaced by 1.5 meter with multiple UAS wanting to land. Could we be able to 1) assign a…"
"Thx for this post Mike T. One thing worth mentionning too is that mini quads are now hitting the 150km/h top speed barrier more and more (93mph), with some bursts going already around 170km/h, with a short term goal to reach 200km/h (124mph) with…"
"The problem with Matternet is that it does not seem to budge since over 3 years now. Imho, it stalls, and they could do way better. I am a bit surprised to still see people only find out now about the possibility of our little machines, but those…"
"The reading of Trappy's defense pdf is a gem. FAA's shameless attack is destroyed purely and simply.
"An interpretation advanced as a litigating position is considered under the same Skidmore standard, requiring that the court be persuaded that the…"
