"Loved the video. I work at UVa and was quite happy to see not just campus but also buildings that I am in a lot. I wish that I would have know about the flight, I would have love to help out or just watch. Are you planning any more flights in the…"
"Seems like we already almost have this, with the Android GCS and a standard APM setup. All we need to do is cut out the bottom of a transmitter to make room for a phone. Or in the spirit of this project, make a very basic open source transmitter…"
"Forgive my ignorance, but I have a few questions (which I hope are neither too dumb nor too forward). How much drift are you talking about, a few degrees per second? Shouldn't that be fixed with a magnetometer? Isn't the quaternion version the same…"
"I love both the mathematical modeling and dynamic calibration. Both would be extremely useful.
The model would be very useful to plan a design and to benchmark your build. If your model isn't performing where you would expect, it could help you…"
"Thanks for clarifying. So are linux numbers actually falling or just the relative percentages? It seems that as the site and community go more mainstream, then the percentages would also go more mainstream (dropping the relatively 'high' numbers of…"
"If the code doesn't work in linux, I would expect fewer linux users to go to the download page. What does google analytics say about the main page views, or better the APM / ACM wiki manuals? Maybe some day I will take some time to look at the code…"
"I was thinking more about being able to mount the phone to a RC transmitter and being able to walk around while leaving the laptop station, well, stationary. Also it would provide a way to use the android app without buying extra hardware. If I felt…"
"@krzysztof That depends on what one defines as a successful mission. If all you care about is the imagery at the end of the day, well yes then success is dependent on a synthesis of many things where any crash (damaging or not) will be considered…"
"There was a good thread in the forum about this. I tried out the mission planner in mono but it is still not working for me to upload firmware or run the terminal. I was thinking of just doing it via the Arduino IDE instead and using the CLI, but I…"
"@jack: Not much of an apparent markup, rather they chose more expensive xbee modules. You won't find the Xbee Pro 900 MHz 50 mW with an SMA connector for cheaper than DIYdrones (I assume via sparkfun) at $55. My quick search on google…"
