The Lynchpin Project – respect and disrespect vs. the reality15:13
Terrence Howard offers $15000 to make a lynchpin fly with multirotor parts, Joshua Bardwell announces the project, and today Drone Mesh says that this whole affair disrespects the community. If this does not sound like a drama, then I don’t know what does.
Let’s talk about the part of the community that does not feel disrespected, is this worth the money ($15000 is not that much), can this be done in around 1.5 months, and what exactly has to be done.
If you decide to participate in the lynchpin, here are some practical pointers as well: standard PID, gyro, accelerometer, and a dynamic mixer.

Completely off topic: $45 in Rotor Riot store for a few 3D printed parts and sticks for the frame model is quite a lot to be honest. But it’s my personal opinion.
