"I just got the Sf11 in mail. when I connect the cable size I get a constant stream of data - that looks pretty good. When I connect the USB side through lightware terminal no ports show up or are recognized. I am using the most up-to date terminal…"
"I use the Ardupilot codebase in a university setting. I personally found the Ardupilot code to be much easier to follow and more straightforward to change. I also find that the developer website for ardupilot to be pretty well documented. Ardupilot…"
"I've used some ToF sensors that were very susceptible to that issue and I've talked to people who have used lidarlite and they said there were issues going from one surface type to another. Just curious if others have had similar issues."
"I need to double check but I think its a 4S5P pack so 17000 mah @ 2C rating(at most) I can draw about 34 amps. I think on a slightly less heavy version I flew it for about 25 minutes. I recently added about 300g which I think from calc's didn't pose…"

"@Thomas we love to get together(again). We've all got to see some of the very neat stuff you are doing. We'd love to get our hands on IR-lock. I'll email you and try and get a meeting together..or at least a fly-day"
"We do not use lines/tiles per se. In our state vector we keep 16 3D feature points that help us navigate. We use a corner harris method with some additional steps to pick the features to track. We also have to add/remove features from the state…"
"Some of it is mentioned on the website. Its pretty much a flying i7 with very minimal add-ons. The frame is carbon rods from hobbyking(super light). Motors are baby-beasts(from HK) with afro-escs(12A). The i7 was stripped of its case and a 3D…"
"The figure is from the rules. I don't know why they decided to use that. A team from Maryland built a cyclocopter and flew it this year. It was a smaller version of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwgzCg9suTI
