Quote from: flybywire on Monday,April 13, 2015, 16:01:32 I wonder what market it';s aimed at? Given that one particular criticism of the inspire is that it has 4 motors, so unlikely to attract commercial use? Assuming of course that the powers that be outlaw quads for commercial work of course. Just being objective here. At least it looks better than the last offering.
Quote from: quadfather on Monday,April 13, 2015, 19:37:25 Perhaps once the full specs are out I will be able to see what sets this apart from a Phantom 3.
Quote from: Hands0n on Monday,April 13, 2015, 20:47:31 The development around Linux-based ArduPilot FCs will extend capability even further. And I think that Pixhawk 2 is the first we are seeing of the pointier end of the technology in the FC. Where is that all going? Ask Andrew Tridgell (Tridge) who seems to be a driving force in the developer community around Linux FCs.
Quote from: kilby on Monday,April 13, 2015, 21:10:26 Also I suspect the Solo will have a longer life as 3d4lr keep on adding value to their kit. DJI tend to smother their older products every 18 months or so
Quote from: james on Monday,April 13, 2015, 21:07:54 While I';ve not heard from Tridge or others on the Solo yet, I';m fairly confident in saying that the FC on this aircraft is almost certainly Linux based. They quote the processor speed as 1GHz, which is the same ballpark as the Beaglebone Black which has been used for quite a lot of the Linux FC prototyping. I';d be surprised if it were actually a BBB+Pixhawk cape in there, much more likely they';ve integrated it all on a board ala Pixhawk';s current incarnation.
Quote from: hoverfly on Tuesday,April 14, 2015, 09:22:07 Now ime really confused i don';t own a space suit, monkey , or feel the need to swing flaming jam jars around my head.Anybody got an idea what the new quad is like.
Quote from: Hands0n on Monday,April 13, 2015, 23:20:07 Very exciting stuff if it really is their first production Linux FC. I was impressed with the presentation by Tridge towards the end of 2014 where he demonstrated a wing running a Linux FC doing a ton of intensive internal processing (compiling the kernel if I recall correctly) while also being flown remotely using Auto mission and it did the circuit perfectly and landed effortlessly.
QuoteComment by Chris Anderson yesterday@Tsahi: Pixhawk 2 will be open source, just like Pixhawk 1. It is a derivative of ArduCopter, and will be merged back into Master. Most of the other software behind Solo is also open source, including DroneKit.
