For one thing, I'm not so sure the ArduEye is well suited, since you need quite instantaneous readout when there is a…"

Kjetil Kjernsmo commented on Geoffrey L. Barrows's blog post 11 gram Arduino-powered laser rangefinder
"I'm looking for a range finder that could be used for obstacle avoidance for a plane traveling at about 5 m/s around the canopy of a forest. At that speed, the autopilot would be a hurry to ascend if something is detected at a 5 meter range, so it…"
