I had a chance to interview Dave Platt for MAN a few years back on a trip to Florida. Dave was very gracious and showed me around his famous workshop and the shed where he keeps many of his models. The interview was condensed to about 3 minutes and was posted on the MAN website for a while. The actual interview was more like 30 minutes so for anyone who's interested, I have posted the interview on Youtube in 5 segments. Here is a link to the first segment:

The streets are filled with rotting leaves from last year. The earth is revolving so fast that the winds are blowing the leaves around at 75 mph. The grass is dormant. Spring will come soon but it will once again be followed by blazing summer, chilling fall and the dead winter.
No flying today. This is weather for kites. Vermin fly kites.
"Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen it's true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"...

...and I'll look down, and whisper "no."

Here's something I posted on the Tools money can't buy thread. I built this following an article from MA from years past. For those balsa builders out there who has went through the painstaking process of shaping all the angles of a built up balsa stick structure with perpendicular ends as well as multi-angular ones, this micro disk sander makes the task almost enjoyable! Unlike my bench top combination belt/disk sander that turns balsa sticks into a cloud of dust in a blink of an eye, this one is small (2" disk), lightweight, and ultra portable as it is DC powered. Because it is low torque, it's much easier to get precision angles without having to resort to blipping the on off switch.

I had posted a blog but I guess I wasn’t clear enough.
So this is an updated one.

I have a TOZO Q1012 drone(brushed motors)
I want to use the stock FC and somehow convert it into a brushless quad.

Things I know I will need:
4 Brushless motors and esc
A Lipo battery and connectors

Things I don’t know:
How to Convert the signal?(will the resistor and diode method help?if not then why?)

Will I have to get a new transmission and receiver or will the stock one work? Or should I just build a new quad ?

Is there anything there, that’s helps me convert the signal?

Or just think of the cheapest way to lift a GoPro hero 5 using this TOZO Q1012 drone.

Thank You!

As NFE's fork is aiming more towards brushed and being based more on preset configs, thought I would keep the FW as it is now with only a few changes.

As suggested by Ian444, I'm going to add the old filters back into the code and add defines to PID file.

I'll try to add SilverAg's dual PIDs, maybe add Joelucids yaw fix and look at a few other code bits from Betaflight. I don't know how successful I'll be but the weather is crap here, so no flying and I've had myself from making anymore quads, so this will keep me entertained.

Let me know if you have any suggestions for layout it things that make a bit more sense with work flow.

Does the latest FrSky R-XSR firmware break SBUS? I found this to be true as I was troubleshooting why my brand new R-XSR that was flashed to the latest firmware (3/8/2018) was not working. I replaced it with another brand new R-XSR that was not flashed to the latest firmware and SBUS worked flawlessly. I later found that a friend of mine had the same issue. He put together this alert for anyone who is having issues with their R-XSR and SBUS. Comment if you have had the same issue.
