Again looks great. As I mentioned it is inspiring me to hopefully finally get a handle on ROS, so soon I will install my second RPI2 on the PhantomX.
(Sorry if off topic here, will create new thread soon!)
Yesterday I received a 32gb SD card (lots of room for stuff). So far I have installed the later Raspberry Pi image and updated...
I also downloaded my Raspberry Pi project (https://github.com/KurtE/Raspberry_Pi) which has a few different versions of my Phoenix software ported to Linux), and used the readme.md file in there to install all of the stuff like Espeak/portaudio... so I could compile the code. Soon up replace the Edison on the PhantomX with this board and see if this works (probably still with XBee) Will then try version with PS3 controller... Install camera... Then Try ROS version...
But I am also in the process of installing ROS on this card. I am currently trying to do the steps in the web link: http://wiki.ros.org/ROSberryPi/Insta...Raspberry%20Pi
One question/issue I have so far is: in the step to build liblz4-dev (apt-get source -b lz4) it appears like this step just hangs
Did you run into this? Is so do you know the fix?

EDIT: Update - I let this run for about two hours and it now finally completed
Also on performance. I vaguely remember when I was earlier working on the RPI (not RPI2) that if I was running headless, I might have gotten better performance by reducing the amount of memory taken by the GPU. (raspi-config advanced options/memory split). I wonder if that still is valid with RPI2? Or does the camera stuff use the GPU? If so maybe it makes sense to give more memory? ... Just sort of wondering...
Again sorry if hijack... But it looks like you are having fun and it might have been the gentle kick in the rear that I needed :lol:
