Steven Adams replied to Marc Cretten's discussion Pixhawk as a stand alone geotagging device in the group PIXHAWK
"you could... but what sort of mapping output are you producing, do you even need the photos geotagged? Could you simply fly a pattern with the camera set to snap every second and then just merge all the photos of the areas you need. Geotagging and…"

Steven Adams commented on Joseph Aletky's blog post Worlds Smallest Pixhawk Powered Quadplane: SUAVX Nano VTOL UAV
"Dave - I'd say the XUAV Talon isn't the best airframe for a quadplane, it will do it, but it is a pig of a thing and puts any good sized props where they get interfered with by the elevators. I don't think it is ideal either for…"

Steven Adams replied to Joseph's discussion Pixhawk on Manned Fixed Wing in the group PIXHAWK
"I'd keep everything inside the cockpit/cabin except for wherever you'd need to place the camera to get a clear shot and have it on a longer lead for the trigger, besides that you could possibly do the whole thing into a neat little box for…"

Steven Adams commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post A new chapter in ArduPilot development
"Gary: my own quick thoughts on that would be that you don't want APM to be like OpenPilot, where getting a controller board seemed impossible - that seems to be a result of them controlling production of their board and being limited to small…"

Steven Adams replied to Wes's discussion Effects of frame design on barometer performance ( and all other non 3.3 specific AC questions)
"could you check the link, or give the name it is posted as please? that link gave an error"

Steven Adams replied to Wes's discussion Effects of frame design on barometer performance ( and all other non 3.3 specific AC questions)
"publishing them to Thingiverse is my suggestion"

Steven Adams replied to Tommy's discussion Suggestion for solvation of the lack of spare parts problem in the group IRIS
"the Iris props are standard T-motor 9.5" props with the self tightening bullet holder, they're about $10 for a CCW and CW pair including the bullet. Cheap arms, or even better, mounts that would fit in the iris body, but allow us to fit…"

Steven Adams replied to Dale Greer's discussion Would a Pixhawk be able to run a tilted rotor hexacopter, like CyPhy LVL 1? in the group PIXHAWK
"here is a great post on one guy who independently did this on TauLabs  http://buildandcrash.blogspot.com.au/2015/05/tau-labs-and-cyphy-level-up.html"

Steven Adams replied to RG's discussion Traveling international with drones in the group Agricultural UAVs
"I take the small ones with interchangeable heads/drivers, I haven't had a problem with them yet - travelling between Australia, New Zealand and USA (Hawaii)"

Steven Adams replied to Maarten Deheegher's discussion Pixhawk + Wifi = Intererence? in the group PIXHAWK
"any interference from the wifi is with the radio receiver (if it is also on 2.4), not the pixhawk itself. So if you used a different freq for control e.g. a dragonlink on 433MHz then that'd remove the potential for interference."

Steven Adams replied to Dale Greer's discussion Will solution for Texas heat upset the barometer? in the group IRIS
"It shouldn't matter, the pixhawk is still inside a case - take a look at a 3DR X8+, they have no external casing, the Pixhawk casing is just out there in the open."

Steven Adams replied to Luis Escobar's discussion Quick spektrum question in the group PIXHAWK
"Thanks for the advice Thomas, that pretty much settles the direction I was going in"
Aug 6, 2015
Steven Adams replied to Luis Escobar's discussion Quick spektrum question in the group PIXHAWK
"Yes, you can just plug in a satellite to the port on top of the Pixhawk - I was surprised as well when I got a 3DR X8 and was looking for the Rx, only to find a tiny thing plugged into the top. From the docs it seems above a certain number of…"

Steven Adams replied to Nader's discussion Flight time of a 3DR robotics X8 model 2013 in the group ArduCopter User Group
"Translational lift should increase the efficiency of the rotors as you go faster. So you'd need to work out the max speed you can be moving before the motion blur in your pictures becomes unacceptable - that'd a function of shutter…"

Steven Adams replied to Erik Graham's discussion Water takeoff - recommendations? in the group IRIS
"you can power up the quad on land - you could either power up via the USB port with a USB battery pack, or a Y cable on the battery connector with a battery other than your flight pack to keep it powered before and after flights."
Jul 7, 2015
Steven Adams replied to Erik Graham's discussion Water takeoff - recommendations? in the group IRIS
"I'd be more concerned with powering it up before I left stable ground so the gyros were set properly, other than that I think I'd do a fast take off and punch it right up off the deck - and be more vigilant with your voltage. RTL or Land…"
