Steve St.Clair commented on Uplift Aviation's blog post Size does matter – choose wisely!
"After saying no crashes to date..........I'd find as much wood I could find and start knocking.
Totally agree with the size and capabilities advancements. But I think top quality video/images will always go to the bigger camera(all other things bein…"

"I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. He thought it was floating there in front of him. He really didn't think it had propellers."

Steve St.Clair replied to Justin M's discussion Problems with the 3DR Iris+ in IRIS
"Hmmmm. I know I have mentioned this in another thread. I do not have an Iris and from what I have been told, there is no room to install a backup battery alarm. They are an excellent idea and work very well and are very cheap. Your battery is the mo…"

Steve St.Clair commented on Charles Blouin's blog post Transport Canada to investigate ''Roman Candle Attack''
"Well, if they are going to do it............they did it pretty much as safe as you could expect.
Even took off most their combustible cloths.
TC has no business in this.........Frankly, I am tired of this ridiculous "what if" scenario of rule making…"

Steve St.Clair replied to Justin Ackermann's discussion Iris+ Random Crash In Flight - Lost In Water in IRIS
"Hi there.
If you don't already use one, I suggest you use a low voltage battery alarm like this one in the link
Redundancy for battery is an excellent idea and the loud beeping pretty much screams at you to land immediately.
Cheers, Steve

Steve St.Clair commented on Rob_Lefebvre's blog post New Drone Service Tests Commercial Usage Laws in Canada
"Generally, I guess I would say flying Phantoms and multis of that size is low risk. Perhaps it can work.
I would like to see the insurance costs though. Ultimately, they would be responsible for anything that happens."

Steve St.Clair commented on Rob_Lefebvre's blog post New Drone Service Tests Commercial Usage Laws in Canada
"Hmmmm. Very interesting, to say the least. I have a feeling things are going to get somewhat more complicated.
Personally I think it won't last without some kind of competency evaluation....ie licence for the operator.
You can rent a uhaul.....but y…"

Steve St.Clair commented on Rob_Lefebvre's blog post Iris/Pixhawk Cold Weather Testing
"Hi Rob. Great job risking your fingers.
Did you allow the iris to "prefreeze" for an hour or so before flight? Minus the battery of course.
Just asking because I have had esc's that wouldn't arm after sitting outside at -12 C
Normally that wouldn't…"

Steve St.Clair commented on Rob Dunbar's blog post 1st Drone in Nevada Test Program Crashes in Demo
"Looks to me like total inexperience. So, if they are going to be inexperienced, next time they better make sure they add more power. I know we all start somewhere.....but don't make it be public...sheeeesh"
