"Hi all, one big question: how the IP address or "reachability" is managed? Is there a way to use AWS or an AWS-like service? I think DynDNS is not working anymore"

Mago commented on UAS_Pilot's blog post 3DR X4 with inverted Motors
"Yes, it's roughly the same reasons spoken here (less vibrations, more efficient flow) and also others, like possibility to remove motor bell (C-clip or screw removed) when stored."

"^ Well, I just happen to remember why the drone is there at the ship in the first place, and stupidity, bad ideas, and showing off pretty much define it. May be more stable with props on bottom, but any worthwhile landing gear would be difficult or…"

"I love the quote: "they are almost like the toy airplanes we used to have as kids" Uh, yeah, except they are completely different in almost every way. :rolleyes:"

Craig Fraser commented on Mago's blog post Drones used in 60 Minutes episode!
"Can't think of any good reason to have the props on the bottom, and a lot of not-so-good ones. Catching the drone from underneath (as shown) fits in the latter category I think, gotta be worse than doing the same thing with props on top, unless…"
