AeroScope and DJI's Transparency, or lack thereof?

Rusty Thu, 10/26/2017 - 12:17

Well, not one to publicly criticize DJI ;), but this article by sUAS News really speaks volumes. I am not going to go reprint the whole article, but just point out some interesting things. Like how DJI refused a member of the press to a "Public"  event, and how they told them the hotel was full, but allowed others, who registered late,r to enter the press conference. Hmm.....  So what is DJI afraid of now?

RMRC Recruit Maiden

Brought the Recruit out to a small informal meetup with some friends from NEFPV with the intent to either fly it, or destroy it trying. Need to break this wing curse that I seem to have, ha ha....  Several other Recruits were there and they look dead simple to launch, basically flying out of your hand with just a slight upward throw. So I flew some of my other craft during that day when it was busy, but finally after lunch things quieted down some and it was time to fly my Recruit.

It has been no secret, I have not had much luck with flying wings. I have done ok with a few small fixed wing aircraft, but all have been a traditional design, a UMX Radian and a FMS Easy Trainer 800, but "Wings"? not so much. I built and proceded to crash a Flite Test Versa Wing in short time, moved to a Pop Wing, but couldn't get it to fly without shaking all over the place. Control throws way too erratic.

OSD options for Ardupilot

Rusty Wed, 04/26/2017 - 12:49

Have been going back and forth for a while now, trying to find a decent OSD to use within the Ardupilot Ecosystem. There are a few options but most are dated and rely on the MAX7456, or cheap clone, to produce the OSD overlay and send out to the video transmitter. The one big issue with that is that analog video is fading away and most of the
