  • Bad Raven: I think a lot of us will have seen the published (leaked) training instructions to police officers on FPV, which was both incomplete and incorrect. Only the Little Hitler types will be comfortable treading any of that path!

  • Reman: Thought for the day - If a knowledgeable police officer stopped you and saw that you had a "600mW" VTX on your quad he'll get funny about it, But would even a VERY knowledgeable officer know what they were looking at if the same VTX had a professional looking label under the heat shrink that proclaimed that the VTX was in fact a 25mW unit?  :hmm:

The Tracker... something's happening...
« on: January 10, 2018, 10:47:58 »
I wonder if anyone still remembers the TRACKER project?
Well, in an interesting turn of events SOMETHING is starting to happen again. Something rather interesting and radically different.

However, I'm not going to say anything until I'm totally sure and I've built, tested, flown, lost and FOUND some prorotypes.
In fact, I think it would be a nice idea to hand out some units at a future fly-up for folk to have a go with.

In the meantime, something we've been tinkering with at work is a nice little funding tool that we're going to offer to some of our web clients which I think might help raise some pennies towards getting a set of PCBs made.

I'd be ever so grateful if some folk could visit this page on the tracker site:

http://www.cheeky-robot.com/help-us-out/

keep the tab open for as long as you're happy, all day if you can! I want to see how this works with a number of people at the same time and get some analytics. There's no software installed on your machine, is just does some calculations in javascript to generate micro amounts of crypto currency. I've not seen any noticable slowdown on a handful of PCs so far (it's disabeled for use on phones at the moment)

Cheers all!

Be careful mate. I cant remember who but a big company recently had lots of negative press for doing something similar. The main issue, if I remember, was lack of visitors permission.

Yep, I read abut that too. Some people were running it in the background which ius FIRLMY what we're not going to be doing.
We run sites for some big charaties and need to make sure that everythig's all above board - hence the nice pink graph showing what we're up to.

Anyone else can't access that link? I saw a spike in activity. Link works for me in the post.

Well, if I can figure this out then at least you can have the option of watching paint dry or watching crypto-mining this afternoon!  :rofl:

Do you have adblocker running?
It blocks the script which is fine for when people are trying to run it sneakily in the background.

We'll add some help to the  final page about that kind of thing.

Tried it earlier while on a rain break and it worked. Pushed up processor load to about 70% (i3 quad core win7).
Not sure about watching paint dry. Bl00dy hard work trying to paint textured walls. Only managed 30% of wall so far. Thank god it's a bungalow  :smiley:

Thanks for trying that. Seems to be working and it really DOES seem that if we get a handful of people to sign on that want to support a find then it could just pay.
We've got about 9p from the last 24 hours testing and that's just on 2 PCs at work and you guys this afternoon.

Yeah, painting on textured surfafe is a horror. My mate has a pressure paint sprayer thingy that he uses for large paint jobs. Says it makes painting walls, fences etc a doddle. Keep at it - at least you're in the fresh air. Though if you're like me you'd probably rather be in the fresh air with a quad in the air!  :cool:
