Nick Tuttle commented on Brendan Jacobs's blog post Like It or Not, Drone Licensing Is Coming
"I think a valid comparison for licensing could be made with the vehicles we drive. Perhaps an extremely low powered beacon could be required to act as a license plate as well?

However I agree that we already have enough laws to deal with the issues…"

Nick Tuttle commented on Timothy Clemans's blog post Drone seized by police at Los Angeles park
"I got 9 minutes through before looking at the video timeline realizing there was still 15 minutes to go. What a waste of time for both sides involved.
I imagine this process should go similar to that of a traffic stop for speeding: Get pulled over.…"

Nick Tuttle commented on Chris Anderson's blog post A Drone's Day at Maker Faire
"I was there too. Waivers/bands were not mandatory. I did not see the indoor flight, but i was concerned about the outdoor flight. It seemed it for quite close to the fire spewing octopus, which would randomly blast at full power. I also noticed this…"

Nick Tuttle commented on Patrick Duffy's blog post Using CH-Products Flight Yoke (Joystick) to remote pilot your APM plane
"Nice! I'm working on a similar solution (though not as well thought out..) using a raspberry pi and arduino to get a Sidewinder Precision Pro to talk to my Aurora 9. Essentially I should be able to use almost any usb joystick style input supported…"

"Nice! So is it time to re-embrace and steal back the term "drone"?"

"I'm up in the OK Panhandle, 'only' 120mi away! So glad to see more drones taking off in this area! Congrats!"

Nick Tuttle commented on CrashingDutchman's blog post Hobbyking getting into 3D printers
"Euan, check out reprap.org for a wealth of info. The main components HK seems to be missing here is the motion hardware (stepper motors, bearings, belts, etc), extruder/hot end hardware, and structural hardware.."

Nick Tuttle commented on Chris Anderson's blog post APM-powered space plane has successful autonomous return from 100,000 ft
"I should have stated in my first post, but I too think this is absolutely amazing! Sort of a first step into open source space exploration."

"The Register has not flown their plane yet? The video is of Larry Grater's plane from 101,000 ft."

Nick Tuttle commented on Jani Hirvinen's blog post Lady GaGa, first wearable hexacopter
"Nice! So instead of using a few (though 12 is not really a few...) larger props, could you use many smaller ones? Is that what the e-volo is doing?"

Nick Tuttle commented on jlcortex's blog post Probably the smallest arducopter frame?
"This is awesome!

Do you think the airflow from the motors onto the flat arms will have a big effect on efficiency and/or vibrations?"

Nick Tuttle commented on Paul's blog post Goggles enable interaction with floating display!
"That DDDR camera tech is cool! It would be interesting to mix it it with some AR tech like CastAR and throw it all into a Google Glass form factor.

I'm still waiting for a nice HD single eye HUD for flying both LOS or FPV. Something like this would…"

Nick Tuttle commented on Chris Onyando's blog post Real Motion Cockpit - Ride inside your Drone!
"You would really just need some way of converting the artificial horizon data (maybe more?) to the movements, I would think. I wonder what the lag would be like?"

Nick Tuttle commented on Adrián Nagy Hinst's blog post All-in-one portable "ground station" was born in Hungary....
"Very nicely done! It looks really finished and well thought out.
I have played around with using gimbals out of a gamepad and an arduino to get PPM into the trainer port of my A9. I want to try to add a wii controller to the mix. I think Human…"

"Wow! I have a number of slightly swelled packs.. Time to get rid of some batteries! What is the best way to dispose of them?"

Nick Tuttle commented on Dimitar Kolev's blog post Wireless power and charging
"For an autonomous copter or rover, this would be a great solution for a charging base. I was looking for wireless charging for my phone and see that they are using multiple smaller coils so that the location of the two does not have to be extremely…"
