so, I’m following this for a while now and didn’t think it’s my cup of tea, but I now think I should jump in.
first, I’d like to say, quite generally, unrelated to this proposal, that when a proposal is discussed that longly and that controversially that when, in my opinion, it should not be funded, because it when obviously doesn’t have a broad community support.
As regards this specific proposal here, I’d like to say:
All the arguments raised here (except those of Never_Mind) are - also in my opinion - absolutely valid and well based!
Yet, I find them inappropriate. They, with only few exceptions, ignore the nature and fabric of the UC4H ESC project. Honestly, all this is scary, and the likely outcome I do see is being declared the scapegoat for all and everything, and you wouldn’t understand the inappropriateness because you don’t understand the project. The only ‘advantage’ I have from this group buy is that I have a lot of work with it and in addition shoulder quite a huge junk of the monetary risk involved with it. I do see no reasons to go beyond that. No, thanks.
So, I want to make this very clear:
Anyone of you is highly welcome to sign in into the group buy as an individual, as any individual on this earth is welcomed to do. But in the current situation I will not accept an ArduPilot funded bulk participation.
Yes, Orel and PX4 do ESC feedback. And they do other nice UAVCAN things.
Wish you fun with furthering UAVCAN in ArduPilot.
