"I want to see autonomous blimps with winches to deliver packages. There would be significantly less risk of death-by-propeller, and the capability for higher payloads/longer flight times."

Jordi Orlando commented on Thomas J Coyle III's blog post Coin-sized Retrievor solar-powered GPS tracking device
"It looks pretty great, but at $300 per device, and without any evidence of working prototypes, I'd be hesitant to back. Also, the video didn't give me the most confident feeling. That being said, the concept is cool, and I would totally…"

Jordi Orlando commented on PX4's blog post PX4 and 3D Robotics present Pixhawk: An Advanced, User-Friendly Autopilot
"I think that the case should still have mounting holes, just in case someone wants to hard mount it to a pre-vibration-dampened frame. Besides that, it looks great, and with a good price point too!"

" Have you tried with a different address? If it's been that long they probably don't know and are having a hard time figuring it out! Are you using a credit card or paypal?"

Jordi Orlando commented on SkyrisFX's blog post Building a unique GoPro Gimbal for the 3DR Hexa - Part 2 (video below)
"I did some research a while back and it seems as though G10 is a pretty common material for multicopters and is often CNC'd. As long as the dust/particles are vacuumed I'd guess it's fairly safe. Obviously a respirator is a…"

"Also, it might save weight to split the gimbal into two parts. For example, you could attach the gimbal between the ends of the front two arms, and then just add a new battery plate between the back two to balance the weight. Just my two cents…"

Introducing Glowduino!

Posted on August 5, 2012 at 5:30pm 15 Comments

Hi, my name is Jordi. I am currently building the first Glowduino prototype, and would like to gauge the interest level in the community. I guess I should tell you what it is.

Glowduino is an Arduino-compatible LED controller board for use on multicopters. It utilizes a TLC5947 to provide constant-current sinks for 8 separate common anode RGB LED strips. In…
