Muhammad Al-Rawi commented on JLJu's blog post Basic Air Data 8mm Pitot Tested in Wind Tunnel
"Jason, 
I have one plane with an airspeed sensor and a couple without. 
In the planes without sensors, I have to set my cruise throttle higher than what the aircraft could be cruising at. Otherwise when flying down a strong wind, they become…"

Muhammad Al-Rawi commented on Laser Developer's blog post DIY LiDAR scanner using the LW20 and a digital servo
"+1 for re-greasing servo gears. I've done this to my FPV pan/tilt and it turns much smoother. I cleaned off all the old stuff (silicone grease?) and used white lithium. Just what I had laying round."

Muhammad Al-Rawi commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Some good (painful) physics lessons in trying to put a 360 video rig under a drone
"I built a mount for a 360 Gopro setup for my university about a year ago. Hard mounting is of course not an option, as it would impair the quadcopter's ability to stabilize itself. The uni had an Inspire 1 already, so they wanted to use that.
I used…"

Muhammad Al-Rawi commented on Geoffrey L. Barrows's blog post 360 degree stereo vision and obstacle avoidance on a Crazyflie nano quadrotor
"This has to be the most impressive thing I've seen in awhile. Not only is it fully integrated onboard, but it's tiny!
Very well done :)"

Muhammad Al-Rawi replied to Cala's discussion Lidar Lite and other sensors are usefull for agriculture purposes? in ArduCopter User Group
"I don't quite agree with Darius regarding the use of 3D cameras over lidar. There isn't a need to complicate a relatively simple task. Lidar is becoming cheaper and better every day. Nothing outdated about it.
The two simple, off-the-shelf options…"

Muhammad Al-Rawi replied to RG's discussion Traveling international with drones in Agricultural UAVs
"I traveled with some folks from the United States to Costa Rica in March. We had something like 6 quads with us and it went smoothly. Here's what we did:

Tools and props went in the check-in bags. Anything long and pointy in carry-on will likely be…"

Muhammad Al-Rawi commented on Gary McCray's blog post Great deal on a 3 axis gimbal with Alexmos controller
"The sensor axis TOP and RIGHT don't look right to me. Could be wrong though.  
Going off the MPU's axes, I think RIGHT should be +Y (facing the camera) and TOP should be +X. "

"David,

Could you post a screenshot of your pid page? Kind of looks like the motor directions are incorrect."

Muhammad Al-Rawi commented on Gary McCray's blog post Great deal on a 3 axis gimbal with Alexmos controller
"Hello all, 
I came across this under the files tab for the DYS gimbal on Hobbyking and plugged the values in. Here are the results with a GoPro (I don't actually own one, this is a loaner): 


It looks like a good start to me. The yaw is pretty…"
