"Does anyone have a link to firmware version 2.4 (mentioned by Ken earlier)?  I've found links to version 2.4 for RFD900+ and RFD900u, but the RFD900x section is grayed out/no links. Firware Download Page"

"Big congrats, Moglos!  A great achievement not only in powertrain optimization, but in support planning.  Almost 8 hours is a long time to keep ground equipment powered.  (unless you have the luxury of flying in your back yard)…"

"Hello Joe, I have seen some dipoles (and yagis) use tubes as elements rather than solid rods.  What advantages or disadvantages are there?  (besides improved rigidity)  Would the same length to diameter rules apply?  Would the…"

"Congrats Rob.  Funny I find it cool/novel to watch a heli autonomous flight video.  They definitely don't seem to get much love."

"Marco, are you referring to your plane's big brother?  It has proven to be one of the (hobby) air frames well suited for long range flight.  I am not sure if it is the best for long duration."

"Nice job Marco.  My first endurance test a few years back was in windy conditions like that.  For much of the flight, it resembled a kite.  What made you choose 11 m/s?  Is that the min power V for the miniTalon at that weight?"

"If you haven't flown a flying wing, I would suggest getting some stick time on a low cost, highly durable one to start with - then add APM, etc.  An EPP model, such as suggested by Stephen, is very durable.  I might even suggest a…"

Trung, have you finally modified the 3dr ground radio, to connect tobt module?, I'm curious if it can be connect directly without cutting the board connections to the USB ic.
Thanks
