Brad I share your concerns, but GPS experimentation may eventually lead to ways of making our hobby safer, by providing pilots information on where NOT to go. Who knows, maybe someday we will all be required by the FAA to have GPS/transponders on board...

Very interesting stuff!
Nomadio has telemetry for cars and wonder if they will offer that for aircraft especially on the new 2.4Ghz.
Any thoughts?

Trust me Brad, its been discussed...over and over and over and OVER AGAIN!
Wanna cut to the conclusion?
Those who do, will do. Those who cant or wont, for whatever reason, WONT!
I have to hand it to the ones who still post their videos of high altitude or autonomous flights, they can handle the barbs.
Mike, BTW the autopilot tests look great!

Nice work.
We have been using the BTA units for the last few years. they are good units but exspensive and a bit hard to setup.
It would be nice if you can perfect this setup.
Let me know if you need someone to help with testing I have the planes and the time.
Cheers

Board works pretty good.. I have not flown it for a while.. Got real busy with other stuff this summer/fall..
Next version will slightly redesign the board with std rc connectors for servos, and add a fliter cap to the 5v supply line, but other than that, seems to work pretty good for nav and alt using HH gps for processing the WP data..

Should be flying it bit more this spring with a larger rogallo wing gasser. Should be interesting..

It's time to create a UAV topic. Lithium Polymer was the big enabler in 2006. UAV is going to be the big enabler in 2007.

The cost of inertial measurement and GPS units are falling through the floor. These things are also getting smaller. 2007 is probably the year you'll start seeing flying robots start to appear, like Star Wars, doing many of the things currently done by tripods, cranes, manned helicopters, and cars.

Personally don't see an immediate future in IR, sonar, or video recognition. It's going to be GPS and inertia, probably with a single chip GPS+6 degree of freedom sensor+microprocessor coming out in 2007.

There's no sense in replicating it.
