More radio failures

Lost radio contact again. Beauty crash. Of all the trigonometry, calculus, algorithm design, computer science, & Ben Waggoner bonuses, the biggest problem is this flaky radio.

The last time we fought this war, HP was.... laying massive numbers of people off. These guys don't have much imagination.

Was at the point where it was the PIC UART locking up at 115200, but we now have it running 12 hours without a crash. All roads point to the environment.

U think since we can land autonomously, she should get an onboard computer & land autonomously when the radio fails. Well, the usual autopilot failures are compass failures. Those cause her to fly faster & faster the wrong way. Having her plunge straight down still feels better than having her crash into someone's SUV.

The compass may be getting distorted by the growing pile of SUV's from your SUV factory bailouts.
