Rob Burrows replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter-3.2 beta testing

Rob Burrows replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter-3.2 beta testing
"Mmm, interesting.   I've been using the 1.3 Vtx with the APM for two years now.  But I did reduce the size of the tricopter arms which moved it closer and so that makes sense.
On the ppm issue I'll look into the settings in Opentx and the micro Rx.…"

Rob Burrows replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter-3.2 beta testing
"Hello, I have a couple of problems to report both of them intermittant:
1) A few times in the past month when I power up my Vtx (on a separate battery) the GPS will suddenly lose connectivity with some or all satellites.  Could this be an issue with…"

Rob Burrows replied to Randy's discussion AC-3.1 autotune support discussion
"George, Are you in both autotune AND alt hold? I have each function set up on a different switch. So I'll switch into alt hold first on the 3 position switch, leave it there, and then switch to autotune on a 2 position switch. Hope that helps!"

Rob Burrows commented on Patrick Egan's blog post FAA BVLOS Committee Formed
"@ Mike: Designated areas for BVLOS with no license necessary. ..yeah that works for me!

@ Patrick (thank you for representing!) and others: It seems to me it is good to have all the options in the discussion during this formative time."

Rob Burrows commented on Patrick Egan's blog post FAA BVLOS Committee Formed
"This is good to hear. Is there any dialog about BVLOS for hobbyists? I think it should require a license but it should be legal in some way."

Rob Burrows commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Droneshare now has No-fly Zones
"@ Lockhart. Aircraft also fly over National Parks all the time (the Wilderness and non-wilderness parts).
In addition to "no landing of aircraft" the law also reads  "no motorized equipment", which I think model aircraft could be interpreted as.  So…"

"I've submitted this to the Github repository:
Hello, please add designated wilderness areas in the U.S. These areas were specifically set aside for non-motorized use by the Wilderness Act of 1964.
Section 4(c) of this act states: "Except as specific…"

Rob Burrows commented on Alex Wong's blog post DJI Phantom flies through fireworks and over crowd. Brave or Foolish?
"If you guys had seen the original video of flying over streets crowded with people that was what all the previous discussion was about."

Rob Burrows commented on Alex Wong's blog post DJI Phantom flies through fireworks and over crowd. Brave or Foolish?
"@ Thomas and others: Maybe for some, but others may not be thinking their actions through and may need a little help to realize it is not a good idea to fly that way in the future. Also appearances are significant right now. So if a recreational UAV…"

Rob Burrows commented on Alex Wong's blog post DJI Phantom flies through fireworks and over crowd. Brave or Foolish?
"Mmm, so the video was removed by its user. So perhaps as a result of all the negative comments here? Perhaps peer pressure does work?"

Rob Burrows replied to Frank Bernd's discussion Flying in the USA
"Enjoy your trip!  As I'm sure you know as there are many beautiful landscapes in that part of the world. The options for ground based exploring are really exciting and endless. It is more restricted for flying your copter, 

When you start looking e…"

Rob Burrows commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Drones now banned in all US National Parks
"@ Bill, yes given that there are some parks that allow model aircraft in certain areas, it may not turn out to be an outright ban.  But it will come down to decisions made at each park.
In my humble opinion (and many other's opinions), there has got…"

Rob Burrows commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Drones now banned in all US National Parks
"Managing parks is a balancing act between a bunch of different interests and user groups.  I would urge folks to read the laws passed by congress (as close to the will of the people we can get) that
enable National Parks: NPS Organic Act
and The Wil…"
