"FYI - I was looking for an RPM sensor and came across this discussion.  My local hobby shop had a Spektrum brushless RPM sensor in stock so I thought I'd give it a try.  It's made by Eagle Tree so it's most likely the same…"

"Version 1.1 of the firmware does not have the "long range" option available and I will be using this as a rangefinder for an airrifle scope setup from 40-100m. .  Also it does not have the signal strength showing in the terminal…"

"Thank you for the information.  You are right.  Did some more digging.  Looks like that these are designed to work with larger objects not the small aerosol particles needed to measure wind velocity.  That type of Anemometer…"

Laser Developer replied to Tom in NOVA's discussion LE-032 700m Laser RangeFinder vs LightWare SF11/C questions
"Without having all the details - neither product is suitable for wind speed and direction measurement. They both use time-of-flight laser technology but have very different timing systems. 'Scope type laser range finders offer long range, slow…"

UAV codes.pdf



I am only about 4 hours into my "self-induced" C++ tutorial course starting from "what is a programming language?" So I cannot determine with great certainty how useful the included codes in the attached project may be. I hope that it would help some of you way ahead of me in the programming department.

Air Force Planning Giant Spy Airship

Posted on March 18, 2009 at 3:30am 3 Comments

From article below:



"The final version of the airship will be about 450 feet long. However, the prototype will be only a third of that size. The craft is known to military planners as ISIS, or Integrated Sensor Is the Structure, referring to the radar system built into the structure of the craft.



The ISIS has a hull made of a lightweight, thick skin. Zeppelins - like the Hindenburg - have a rigid external structure. Blimps are not rigid, and are given their shape from the… Continue
