"Does the blackbird allow selection of sbs, interlace etc? What format does oculus use?
I am very tempted to get a backbird, looks great!"

John Hanson commented on Randy's blog post ArduCopter 3.2 ready for wider use
"Dropped ssupport for sonar for MultiCopters on APM1 and TradHeli on APM1 & APM2 (ran out of Flash space)

Fantastic version - with no…"

John Hanson commented on Roberto Navoni's blog post VR Brain Micro 5.0 : VRX Personal Fly Robot SDK the perfect fly platform for test all the feature of new VRBrain. The firwmare is tested and we are ready to start to ship the first boards next week.
"Really nice! I love a small, safe frame that can run indoors as well as outdoors ( in some stiff wind! ) so well. Indoor 3D nav is coming sooner  than we think.
Will you be selling the VRX AV250 frame?"

John Hanson commented on Liam Lambkin's blog post Using Navspark as the primary GPS for APM
"This is really cool at $25! Just got mine, let it run inside my basement for a while and now have 5-7 gps sata and 11-13 Glonass. I have seen hdop as low as 1.20 a record for me inside. It seems to take longer to acquire than the Ublox, though, but…"

John Hanson commented on Nicolas Vuignier's blog post Antimedia present's the "Owl Cam"
"I dream of a golf ball sized ptz camera with digital stabilization -can't be too hard these days

John Hanson replied to Julian Long's discussion Unexpected plunge from 40m in ArduCopter User Group
"This is a bad esc. I have fallen for this twice now but have learned the hard way (broken gopro) NEVER take off if the escs do not power up correctly at the same time. Many times a reboot seems like it fixes it but it will fall out of the sky within…"

John Hanson replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter-3.0.1 released!
"Hi Randy and crew-
Testing 3.0.1 now has been really great - random yaw gone, loiter spot on, sonar is perfect (mounted hanging off arm, away from prop, battery, and esc), RTL a thing of beauty.
Last night I fired up the LED strips and ran some…"
