jcrubino commented on Nick Goodey's blog post pyXY - Synapse SM700 Dev Board May Be better than Xbee
"I have had a synapse chip set on the bench for a year now.
Nice to program but form factor (pin spacing really) has made it difficult for to quickly prototype projects."

jcrubino commented on Andrew Rabbitt's blog post X-Plane Skyfun model - Work-in-progress...
"I have been pondering this problem.
Would it be possible to create accurate point clouds with a kinect or 3D laser scan airframes into useable data files?  Having accurate wings and propellers could be great with X Plane blade theory.

"Daring indeed Brad and good luck.
Are there large enough brushless motors available to simplify the mechanical design?"

jcrubino replied to Philipp's discussion Simulating Kalman Filter in XPlane
How do I get started writing autopilot code for X-Plane.
What language do you use?  What are the best comprehensive or cohesive posts/tutorials on this?
I want to be able to grasp the Algorithmic side before anything else.
