"Thanks for sharing. I had an unfortunate event with my quad on Sunday which led to a bloody finger and a desire to add something similar to my code. I want the quad to beep at me when its armed and the motors are not spinning.  That way I know its…"

SilverFox commented on diego colonnello's blog post UAV fuselage redesign....
"Your airframe looks great. Mind sharing it's stats? Weight, span, power system, etc. Also, is that spot up front for your camera? Again, good job with the new design."

SilverFox commented on Thon's blog post Path to an Aerial Photography Drone
"I've always liked Twin Boom pushers! I've built a few from scratch and have always been pleased. The Ursus design is great, I scaled it down and built a 50" version using pictures of the 70". It is one of my favorite planes to fly. If you would like…"

SilverFox replied to UVM UAV Design Team's discussion Not getting enough thrust to sustain flight
"I've been scratch building RC planes for a little while, so here are my recommendations.

Don't use a 8" prop with that motor. General rule of thumb; the lower the Kv, the bigger the prop. The higher the Kv, the smaller the prop. With a 890 Kv…"

SilverFox replied to Kirill's discussion ArduPilot Mega Instructional videos for beginners
"Good job Kirill. I have found that one of the best ways to really learn something is to teach others. You can get a basic understanding on something by reading and a better grasp by applying that knowledge. I believe that you get the most out of it…"

SilverFox commented on Julian's blog post Unmanned Development Team
"Everything looks great!  Congrats on starting the new project.  I really wish I had the chance to do this kind of stuff when I was in school.  Maybe I should look into doing this for one of my local schools.  Could be just as rewarding."

SilverFox replied to David spencer's discussion DX7 set-up for ArduCopter
"I am using the DX7 with a 6 ch receiver.
I have it setup in Acro mode with no other special setups. Of course you may need to reverse a couple of channels to get everything working correctley, but that goes with any radio.
So far 6 channels is…"

SilverFox posted a discussion
Greetings, I am in need of some expert advice.  My Quad does not want to level out correctly and I am suspecting that I may have a problem with my hardware. I have tried multiple versions of code. Arducopter RC2, ArduPiratesNG, and ArduCopter…

"Everything has been installed and my QUAD took to the air again tonight. .  I think there is room for improvement, but I still recommend this.  The gear is still an issue, it will need reinforcement. Also, the motor mount holes did not match up for…"
