Paul G. replied to Paul G.'s discussion High performance serial data logger
"Oooops, my bad guys. This tiny implementation not to mention single ended signaling means the rate figures above are bits / sec not bytes / sec. In terms of actual bytes per second that's 25k bytes per second and 100k bytes per second, in comparison…"

Is there any interest in a much higher bandwidth serial data logger ? The initial plan is two versions, both about  the size of Sparkfun's OpenLOG that will do what it does but actually log at ~250k bytes / sec while the other will do ~1m bytes / se…

Paul G. commented on Denny Rowland's blog post How to take aerial filming to the next level with camera stabilization
"one small bit of advice - systems are always only as good as the worst part in them, so before worrying about anything else i'd find some servo's with the precision your looking for and then build a slop free mount with the center of mass at the cen…"

Paul G. commented on Paul Mather's blog post HK's GCS now compatible with APM MAVlink
"Did more checking.
1) deleting the reg entry allowed the old (jan 14 2011) version to work.thank goodness i saved them.
2) the new version refuses to work with an ftdi adapter or the microchip one. both adapters work with realterm, hyper terminal an…"

"Hi,
I have a problem with the latest version - the main com port connect button stay's grey. This did not happen on the last version and on this version its clickable on the tracking tab. I tried to install the previous version but no dice - always…"

Paul G. replied to Ben Levitt's discussion Data over a Video stream?
"Its coming Ben, we have figured out all the details on exactly how to do it and even had boards laid out but then we changed the main video out amp (1W) so it has to be laid out again. The board on the plane will have the option to do OSD (graphical…"

Paul G. replied to William's discussion Sr.Telemaster CG calculation, lifting tail airfoil.
"Moving the CG will neither increase nor decrease the aircraft's lifting capacity, it may make the airplane more pleasant to fly. The only things that can affect its steady state lifting capacity are 1) motor power, 2) airfoil shape(s), 3) lifting ar…"

"it doesn't matter what the AMA says - it matters what the regulations say - and the chances of those saying "you must be a member of the AMA" is ..... ZERO."

Paul G. commented on Pete Burnight's blog post Drive 10 Servos using only 2 Arduino Pins
"that's exactly how old (pre-PCM) receivers work. one note, you can't get 10 servos with a steady frame rate unless all the pulse length's just happened to add up to 20mSec exactly, the normal thing to do is not use the first channel and hold the 401…"
