Burning Man 4K Resolution HK SkyEye Pixhawk Ardupilot


Burning Man In 4K Resolution HobbyKing SkyEye FPV Airplane With Pixhawk as Flight-Controler and Ardupilot as Autopilot Hardware.

My dream to fly a HobbyKing SkyEye FPV Airplane with Pixhawk controler, and Ardupilot autopilot-controler at my first Burning Man 4K Resolution in 2002 is a dream come true. I had my first shot at it the previous year, but despite a lot of preparation, not everything was perfect with my RC, so I did it again.

A lot of work went into building this plane, adding redundancies and safeties, as well as fitting 3 cameras, and the result was well worth it. Big thanks to the ardupilot team, nightghost for his OSD firmware, and all the other folks who wrote some of the software the 5 computer micro-controllers that were in the plane (not counting those on the camera or VTX):

This Burning Man 4K Resolution video is a mix of 4K (gopro) front video and 2K (mobius) rear facing video, explaining the change in contrast and resolution if you are viewing in 4K. There are some artifacts from the yt antishake filter, but they help with the unstable shots from a plane “vs a drone” Screenshots of the flight, and details.

This Burning Man 4K Resolution video is a mix of 2.7K (4K gopro in low light mode) front video and 2K (mobius) rear facing video, explaining the change in contrast and resolution if you are viewing in 1440p (actual resolution is an unusual 1520p). There are some artifacts from the yt antishake filter, but they help with the unstable shots from a plane (vs a drone) If the audio is muted or you’d like the original RC plane sounds.

While this video is my favourite for its transition from sunset to night, parts of it were filmed in heavy wind (it peaked at 62km/h), so it’s not super steady and the last part is not framed well, hard to do when fighting the elements, sorry (the front lens also got covered by water vapour, making the image look a bit blurry).
The video is shaky, sorry, that’s the nature of planes, and I kept the cameras inside the plane (i.e. not gyro stabilization) for efficiency of flight and safety in case the plane were to crash (it was made out of foam). This would look better shot from a drone, but I consider those unsafe to fly over people since if they fail they can cause serious injury, or worse (drone use is also restricted at Burning Man 4K Resolution flight for that exact reason).

While Microsoft may be the biggest software company in the world, not every computer user is a fan of their products, or their way of doing business.

While Microsoft’s Windows became the most widely used operating system for personal computers in the world, many experts took issue with Microsoft’s strict policies regarding licensing, ownership, distribution, and alteration of their software.

The objections of many high-profile technology experts, most notably Richard Stallman, led to what has become known as “the Open Source Movement,” which is centered on the belief that computer software should be free both in the economic and intellectual senses of the word.

Eventually, one of Stallman’s admirers, Linus Torvalds, created a new operating system called Linux, a freely distributed software which many programmers consider to be markedly superior to Windows.

Revolution-OS is a documentary that examines the genesis of the Open Source Movement, and explores and explains the technical and intellectual issues involved in a manner understandable to computer aficionados and non-techheads alike.
