Comment Re:I have several drones and I support this (Score 1) 193

As person that follows the rule of law, I cannot support this. No federal government agency should be allowed to break the law.
Federal law specifically says the FAA cannot regulate model aircraft under certain conditions.
FAA is trying to regulate model aircraft under the conditions set forth by law.
FAA is breaking the law, too bad we cannot take the administrators and send them to jail until they post bail.

Comment FAA told AMA to eat shit basically (Score 1) 193

The FAA basically told the AMA eat shit.
Even though the federal law says that the FAA cannot regulated model aircraft under federal law. Utter BS the law says they cannot regulate a model aircraft under 54 LBS, that is flown under 400 AGL and operated with VLOS of the operator. The AMA self limits themselves to 15lbs.
Official response from the AMA. http://amablog.modelaircraft.o...

This will be DOA when a lawsuit gets filed by the AMA.
I crashed more than one 1k aircraft on landing, do you think I won't just throw money at lawsuit to be filed against the FAA? (2.4GHz frequency hop is godsend now, haven't had a wreck since)

FYI : Obama has been the president for the last 7 years. ISIS is clearly Obama's fault for not doing anything on Syria and pulling out troops from Iraq too soon.
Air strikes alone is like causal sex. All the gratification without any commitment. Obama did the same failed Clinton policy of using only air strikes. Air strikes alone didn't stop Al Qaeda then and it isn't going to stop ISIS now, it is just going to piss them off more.
I was in US Army deployed to northern Iraq and we controlled it with minor issues. Crap I use to drive back and forth from Tal Afar to Mosul without issue, go look up who controls those areas now. We took much longer to with draw down forces from Japan and Germany, which provided the governments there enough time to build up stability.
Don't say we shouldn't have gone into Iraq, we cannot go back in time, we can only improve going forward. Pulling out troops prematurely leads to security vacuum.

Again not actual journal with any standing and you cite the WSJ?
Oh yes I do have a mental disorder but I don't think normal, I was locked in box by the kindergarten teacher.
I have no issue with gays or trans, some things are permanent and society should accept when people are different.

Boot faster? bullshit, the majority of embedded systems have one core, systemd would help nothing.
All my machines suddenly were taking exactly 90 seconds to boot, guess what systemd was part of an update. Removed systemd boot time is 2 fucking seconds.
systemd folks and redhat are just brain dead.

No the exterior is soft type of fabric and isn't removable, they are doing it for comfort and breathability . The fabric is semi-transparent to allow light and sound to pass through it(the CV1 has microphones in it). I demoed the current prototype and it was very easily to get dirty. I was really confused like you when I first held it. I thought the fabric was a removable soft cover when it is not. The same design goal allowing the fabric to be semi-transparent will be a great attractor for dirt. I hope the final product is a little more dirt resistant. Oculus even said the first time they wrap/put together the first CV1 it took more than hour just for fabric frame.
My day job is the vr lead at my company. Right now we are switching to the Vive after mainly using the oculus for the last 2 years. I have one Vive dev kit at work. The Vive is just a better headset than the CV1, without question. The Valve controller track much better than the touch controllers, and if you have big hands you SOL with the touch controllers.

The CV1 frame is made fabric. An entire presentation at oculus connect 2 was spent bragging about how they made the frame of fabric. Fabric just like your shirt, Oculus had pictures of shirts in the presentation. I have demoed the CV1 multiple times, it is fabric just like your shirt but no way to clean it like your shirt. The back of the fabric is harden using some kind of epoxy. You can read more about it here .
I really hope they abandon the idea or at least coat with Teflon.
