Well, that's happening.

I don't know what's happening inside the Ardupilot community, it's really a community project or what else?.

But as i know and you know, the community doesn't make it private any related project, Ardupilot is a Free Software and open sourced project for related projects and for well like many others.

Today, they removed and banned to me from official Ardupilot social networks and my related project called URUS (Universal Robotics Unmanned System) propossed to the community as a solution for a universal and accesible tech for drones, robotics and unmanned vehicles system that was posted and published on their community discussion about 2 years old, and it not just, because my project is a fork from Ardupilot master and master-AVR.

I'm being paranoic, but i think the purpose from some people inside the project is to opaque the good faith that have Ardupilot growing up very fast on the unmanned robotics technology world.

I will continue with development and supporting to Ardupilot project and my project the URUS System project for well.

Thank you very much to all, sincerely.

Hiroshi Takey F.


The URUS work progress and info for the community was removed from Ardupilot discuss platform.

  • If a community explains their expectations and purpose of their forum, but someone continues to defy those expectations and requests over the course of months, then it really does put the community in a tough spot.  It's not about democracy or freedom of speech at that point.  It becomes more about respect (or lack of it) and if ultimately a person needs to be banned, sometimes that just has to happen.  There are other places where a person can post whatever they want to say.  And don't forget that technically, freedom of speech means you aren't going to get arrested for expressing a view point.

  • Seems to be not very much a project related matter, but more of a just getting along with others type problem.If more cooperation was shown by both parties (there may have not been a problem at all).Sometimes great ideas and thoughts are simply misunderstood when people cooperation skills get in the way. I really hate to see anyone's project suffer only due to their own personal feelings and attitudes.But some seem that they are simply better thinkers about the science, (than they are at just "learning" to cooperate with others ,for the greater good of their own personal projects. ) "Egos & superiority complexes do not help any project (not that I'm saying that is what has transpired here, since I personally do not know ) I'm only "speaking" from a neutral standpoint actually. Goodluck on three future on your project ,I would have liked to have heard and learned more Ann about it.(Unfortunately, I'm new to the site myself) Perhaps share a link with me ,if you can. (sounds interesting) the little bit, that i actually heard about ✌
  • I posted the link so people on here can go look at the craziness you've been posting over there and see the truth. The leads at AP appear to have tried to do their very best to make you happy and explain how the system works, but you were in complete offensive mode for months on end. Now, those on this board can't go see the truth so their judgement of AP isn't skewed by your single point of view.

    PS auto-translate is not your friend. I can't understand most of what you're trying to communicate.
  • @Scott, the good about my name is that i'm a real person with a name reputation that follow the freedom, not a simple enterprise or a ghost.

    And again, i say that i what see and i communicate to the community the activity, the problem cause who promote the censorship, not me. You are mixing pears and apples.

  • so, I apologize for posting non-software related posts... did not know this was software only site, hard to tell by the name  

  • Hiro was probably banned for his causing problems and paranoia conspiracy theories. He was constantly accusing the community of negative activities, with no evidence. I want involved, but if I had to guess... His ejection was probably warranted.

    Why the coverity scan from travis is sending the push to a private email account? (derived from Git…
    Are you accusing someone to steal other works ? But this is a false problem… the travis config is ardupilot travis config… you need to change it to…
  • Tantamount to censorship.  Very uncool for an 'open' project.

  • Developer

    hmm. That wasnt very nice of Mr Poirier. I have "unfriended" him.

    Ardupilot is really just another corporation these days.

  • anticipatory obedience ...
