About Me:

Just starting in UAV's.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I'm interested in the commercial use of UAV's - Particularly in Australia where we have slightly more relaxed laws regarding their use.

Shaw Innes commented on Patrick McKay's blog post 8.6 mile Rangelink UHF Control Handoff Mission (video)
"I've been thinking about this type of flight myself recently (thinking only...) so I'm really pleased that someone is actually testing these concepts.  Has anyone done any research into other equipment that supports multi-master mode?

Shaw Innes commented on Khurram's blog post GE's ADEPT 3000 miniature Video Tracker revisited
"The ADEPT 3000 looks interesting.  I made some enquiries today and in Australia the development kit goes for around $13,000.  It's a little out of my budget, that's for sure :)"

"Hi Michael, I have spoken to Phil Presgrave at CASA regarding this - he was extremely helpful with information, it seems that CASA is in a bit of a limbo state at the moment - they are (were) currently working on a more formal means of integrating…"

Shaw Innes commented on Shaw Innes's blog post Project Andromeda - New airframe and autopilot
"Absolutely James - the airframe in the videos above is the latest revision of the concept vehicle... It's hard to tell from the videos - but it's of a similar design, the wings are a little less swept, and a little longer than in the renders. I'll…"

I've had my APM for a while now - I got it in December 2010 and had it working basically, but never flew with it. I just started reprogramming and setting it up again and noticed that my first channel output isn't working (even in manual mode)... I…

Shaw Innes commented on Bask Aerospace's blog post New Australian Distributor
"Thats awesome :) Good luck. Would you be looking to stock XBee modules and boards also? I think the "one stop shop" in Australia would be great.

Shaw Innes commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Restarting the DIY Drones podcast: Volunteers needed
"I really mss the podcssts too. I would love to volunteer but I'm in Australia so the timezones might be messy. I've got audio production experience and software though, so I wouldn't mind helping out with that if required."

Shaw Innes replied to Allan Harley's discussion aileron servo goes mad
"I don't know if this is related or not, but I'm having an issue with mine at the moment too. When in manual mode I am unable to control the ailerons but if I switch to stabilize it seems to control them fine.

It may or may not be related, and as…"

Shaw Innes commented on Ritchie's blog post Choosing an airframe
