Maxbotix vs wifi 2

Maxbotix vs wifi (8 min 17 sec)

Long & boring video documenting interference between wifi & the Maxbotix MB1043, the world's most temperamental sensor. Some orientations do better than others. At least any wifi problems aren't due to lack of power. The Maxbotix & wifi wouldn't be very useful on any smaller vehicle.

A totally random orientation of wire & dongle was required. Wire orientation, wire insulation, dongle orientation, dongle distance all determined whether the Maxbotix died. Any slight movement of the wire breaks it.

The automatic takeoff & altitude hold were extremely accurate. The 10Hz update rate wasn't as problematic as feared.

It's back again to the hardest part, the horizontal position.
