"Thanks Charles. BTW: This is a Parrot Disco! They are now available for $399 (clearance basically), down from $1300 on launch. They are a perfect candidate for 4G control. And you confirmed what I have…"

"Charles -- not sure if you are monitoring this thread. Can you take a look at this video and specifically the technical comments and advise if you think there is a data carrier (Verizon/T Mobile) whose 4G modem that could work with this setup. I…"

Marc Dornan replied to Boas61's discussion Nano Talon or similar plane, with Pixhawk - is it possible?
"You can easily fit a Pixracer. A 200g camera will make this plane heavy. It will fly. This is not a good mapping platform for serious applications. It will be knocked around in the wind. Too small. "

Marc Dornan commented on's blog post My Bixler UAV project
"Brilliant work. I love it. How did you design that without cutting your bixler to get the profile shape? Please tell. I want to do something similar with a Bixler 3. Is there a reason you did not choose a bixler 3? My objective is to have easily…"

Marc Dornan commented on luke cooke's blog post Why the need For an 2,4ghz RC uplink?
"Combined telemetry and rc links are a compromise in terms of performance of course. TBH OPlink has not been a great performer for me and others and has not been developed for some time. I would not select it for a controller now. Dragonlink has the…"

"I see. Your price is fair enough. Good luck. It is a niche product. But I would think it would be great as a backup for someone that already has one."

Marc Dornan commented on Gary McCray's blog post Sony RX0 for $700.00 looks way better than GoPro
"Takes nice pics by the looks of it. Video only 1080 but it does output uncompressed 4k video that can be recorded externally, So not much good. Maybe they can improve that with firmware updates."

Marc Dornan commented on Phillip Kocmoud's blog post Introducing the AUAV X2.1 Flight Controller
"The X2.1 has a lot more I/O options. It is pin compatible with a Pixhawk 1. For example Pixracer has only 6PWM outputs. It is for more 'serious' DIY applications. Maybe Jordi can start a brand new thread with a better breakdown and…"

Marc Dornan commented on Dino Mehanovic's blog post Drone Landing Autonomously on Walls
"That is just fantastic work. Well done. How easily would a serious gust of wind dislodge a perched UAV? In other words do you need a calm environment. Also, I imagine that this could be easily adapted to allow landing in tight spaces -- probably a…"

As soon as I get them I will do so. Maybe we can kickstart his little hobby into something better for himself.
