Luke Nyhof replied to Chris Shelby's discussion Which ESC / Motor controllers are best when upgrading from MK to Pixhawk
"Hi Chris, personally I'd stick with the MK motor controllers, the firmware is very solid and has far more diagnostic reporting than 95% of the BLESC's used by masses. That said, if you are looking to offload a few MK boards then your post has…"

Luke Nyhof commented on F. C. Bearsch's blog post Rethinking the RC "Controller TX" - SuperMan FM Continued-
"Awesome, I've been working on a prototype for this for the past year, should be releasing an open source beta of the controller in the coming months, but I am open to collaboration. It's based on a 6DOF optoelectronic interface similar to the…"

Luke Nyhof replied to airmazingvideo.com's discussion Pixhawk with BaseCam (AlexMos) SimpleBGC Gimbal
"Have you looked into the Wiki for the built in camera gimbal function? (http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/common-camera-gimbal/) then just hook up your AlexMos controller as written there, to prevent the APM from controlling the gimbal automatically…"

Hey fellow OpenTX users!I've been procrastinating whilst writing up my thesis, at the end of finishing up a rather long Matlab script I thought wouldn't it be great to be able to use Matlab to generate and save SAPI5 voice packs for my favorite TX,…

Luke Nyhof commented on jlcortex's blog post Huge quadcopters can be attractive alternative to fixed wing for mapping and survey
"Any thoughts on using Taulman Bridge 618/645 nylon filament instead of brittle PLA? I'm currently in the middle of a large Hex build for a 5kg payload, and personally I wouldn't trust thousands of dollars worth of hardware to be held together or up…"

Luke Nyhof commented on Chris Anderson's blog post "Mind-controlled" spherocopter on Kickstarter
"@ Fab, it sure as heck does work without an invasive ECoG array, try telling that to the neuroscience department at pretty much any hospital around the world! It's the muscle noise and electrode connectivity/impedance non-stationarity which is the…"

Luke Nyhof replied to Chad Frazer's discussion No telemetry but good display...
"I have the same problem, tried with Xbee and an MK Wi.232 module, all have the same problem. The MinimOSD is receiving the heartbeat signal but will not update the telemetry (artificial horizon, GPS lat & lon, etc...) only the "mode" change and the…"
