Got around to listening to it out of curiosity.
It's not necessarily quad…

The PX4flow is expensive, heavy, & fragile. Its sonar module is insufficient, so you need to replace it with a more powerful module. Replacing the MB1043 with an MB1240 & translating the serial protocol from cm to mm is required. Only the…
1st post. Nothing novel revealed, but it's friggin CBS, the big league. Personally would have been ecstatic just to get that close to Molly Wood.
Owner knows why drone crashed into stands at bull run
Found the story intriguing. Batteries remane fickle things. Their total charge is still only estimated by stopwatches & coulomb counters, but there is no dip…
The copter flies away & returns to the starting point at 2 different altitudes, using only optical flow odometry for position & sonar for altitude. The fact that it landed at nearly the takeoff position was probably coincidence,…
As expected for an undamped, strictly proportional feedback system, it bounces off walls faster & faster until it crashes. It can't hover stationary, from the reflected IR. Walls not completely reflective, not completely seemless, or not orthogonal to the sensors are less effective.
To engage the altitude hold, fly above 0.2m & get…
The 1st flights good enough to get on video. It's extremely unstable, but there is hope. The MPU9150 was the only way to get the sensors small enough. It might also be the smallest thing currently…Continue
