"Hi Krzysztof, hi Ben,
the idea is not really new, the oldest (2005) product I know is the GPS-Boomerang: http://www.gpsboomerang.com/content/view/34/42/
Guess why only few people have heard about it? There is not a real market because :
"I gues the FAA was not involved in the making of the Clip ;-)
Place looks like the usual field Ascending (now Intel) is testing their Systems...
(The same as for the Intel 500 demo, talking about FAA but flying by German air law :-D )"
at 20km the plane just flies faster (50-60m/s, 13m/s at ground level), and actually the control surfaces are more effective under these conditions!! We underestimated this effect a little bit which led to a roll movement you can see in the…"
"Hi, nice to hear many people are interested in the topic.
Let me add some comments as one of the HABLEG crew members.
Flying from that altitude is a really great experience and a massive challenge. If you get the chance, go for it! Our flight was…"
"People should not think they save buying two dedicated machines in the end with this one...
It is a nice hobby cnc mill (but there are many on the market).
As a 3D printer it might not be nice to use. Speeds are too slow compared to dedicated (belt…"
"Is it just me or does this part of the document contain a "wrong equation"...
- RPA for recreation = model aircraft
- model aircraft community != recreational RPA users != RPA industrie (commercial)
Anyway, I can hardly see a point in restricting…"
"Hi, interesting idea.

nice project, I know the feeling of developing something from scratch to work :-)
Just an advice about the XBee868 from my experience: Take care about the duty cycle with these units. It´s limited to 10% and if you exceed it (calculated…"
"Did anyone notice the DO NOT section saying:
"Do not fly closer than 9km from built-up areas"
Ok, this leaves a lot of space in Canada :-) But for many applications it means to ask for an SFOC, doesn´t it?"
"Hey guys, whats the negative attitude about here???
There is a group of researchers showing an experiment using a multicopter. You should use it as a positive example what the technology can be used for... (Even if it´s not Ardupilot :-) And it…"
