Paul Mather replied to SalesProductions's discussion ArduCopter for Mac Osx ( Mountain Lion ) - 10.8.3
"There are MANY Mac fans here in the development community so my comments absolutely do not reflect that of DIYd or anyone else for that matter. But why didn't you just spend the $300 - $700 on a Windows laptop to begin with instead of $2,500 on a…"

Paul Mather commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Remote control with Xbee
"I decided to back it...I went with the Q4 as I liked the idea of 4 joysticks. Not sure what to use it on. I don't think X-Bee's are quick enough to fly by...."

Paul Mather replied to cxgiacomo's discussion Not getting any data readout with APM 2.4 and latest HK lite
"I believe the APM2 is running on MAVlink 1.0. My software is not compatible with that version of MAVlink. I also don't own an APM2 currently...."

Paul Mather commented on Paul's blog post Raspberry Pi Computer To Cross The Atlantic Ocean In Autonomous Boat
"From what I understand, land based solar panels require constant cleaning to keep them running as efficiently as possible. In this case, I should think salt might tend to build up on the panels significantly reducing their output.
I'm sure there…"

Paul Mather commented on ARHEXA's blog post UNIVERSAL 6 position mode switch for ANY TX !
"And by ANY you mean SOME! lol, j/k. This is a great idea. You probably should revise the title and content to indicate it only works on radios with a pot knob or 3 position switch. If you only have 2 position switches, there's a very slim chance it…"

Paul Mather commented on Chris Anderson's blog post A warning on travelling with drones in your luggage

In the link above, by my math, that's (2) 9000 mAh batteries 3S or (2) 6800 mAh batteries 4S. No "spares" allowed in checked bags, but you seem to be able to take them as carry…"

Paul Mather commented on Jack Crossfire's blog post Downward facing camera busted
"I've never talked to Jack, I've read a bunch of his posts. He sure comes across as both crazy and brilliant...which I would guess lots of brilliant people are. It is too bad that gone are the days of the big companies hiring the nuts to work in a…"

Paul Mather commented on Ellison Chan's blog post UAV Inspired by Maple Seed.
"I say good job Lockheed! You're catching up to what Jack Crossfire's been doing for years! I wonder what kind of budget these two groups had... my guess is Jack's efforts have cost a little bit less.
How long before Lockheed puts out a long…"
