Chris, you’re providing absolutely nothing in response but repetitive fluff. So I’m not going to waste my time discussing it any further with you. Either you do not know the information I’ve asked, or are unwilling to provide it, or a little of both. It’s not getting either of us anywhere.
@tridge, Thank you for the follow up with actual information on the product and your experience with it. I think the features they’ve added are good ones. Regarding the faster processor and additional memory, what benefit is that bringing to the users today? From what I recall (and I’m obviously not an expert on this), the Cube was not running our of memory or processing power with Chibios. It had a rather dramatic surplus. So while having more memory and a faster processor is a feather in it’s cap, is it actually accomplishing anything?
The reason I keep asking about the technological advancement and the actual improvements the community will experience is to determine if anything about this actually justifies copying and undercutting the design of the Cube and all the work that went into it. If CUAV has produced a product that will significantly advance the community, and it happens to also be designed to detract from and undercut the Cube, then so be it. That’s actual competition. If the changes are all essentially superficial and have no real meaningful impact, then it’s nothing more than a typical sleazy undercutting with some minor differences so they can pretend it isn’t.
