Welcome to the largest community for amateur Unmanned Aerial Vehicles! Use the tabs and drop-down menus above to navigate the site.
This community is the birthplace of ArduPilot, the world's first universal autopilot platform (planes, multicopters of all sorts and ground rovers). Today the Pixhawk autopilot runs a variety of powerful free and open UAV software systems from the Dronecode Foundation, including:
This book should be very useful to those wishing to learn more about targets, sensors, platforms, and the underlying radiometric principles behind UAV imaging. Not a book on…Continue
I wanted to share with you our latest work in progress on lighting technologies for drone racing.
This is just the beginning but it look already amazing :)
I hope you'll enjoy it !
I've you're interested in such technologies feel free to contact me.
I've posted a bunch of teaser videos of the Solo swarming we do often at 3DR, but have not yet posted instructions on how to do it yourself -- I was just waiting for the team to document the steps. Well good news: now they have!
The above video (sorry for the shaky camera -- we were excited) shows a fun exercise in in using the Solo drones…Continue
In this post I show videos of two real flights, the first above for FlightZoomer version 2.0 and another below with the freshly released version 2.1. Both videos show the same automatic flight including an ILS approach. In the videos the replay feature is used to sync the recorded video…Continue
Théa is the world’s first UAS to meet the high standards for an FAA Airworthiness Certificate, expanding its operational capabilities beyond those of any other commercial unmanned aircraft to allow legal flight over crowds, at night, and beyond. By providing unmatched aircraft-grade reliability (99.999 999 9%), Théa meets the stringent requirements necessary to go where consumer-grade systems can’t.…Continue
Availability of water for crops and their resistance to shortages during growth affect the overall yield, quality and profitability of field production in changing climate (Fig. 1). Plants affected by drought stress close their stomata, the process of transpiration that cools vegetation gets down and the surface…Continue
As some of you may know, I have been working on a GCS for iOS devices called iMavlink.
It is currently in its final stages before release, but I would really like to have some beta testers to squish the final bugs.
If you are interested, I am currently selling the BLE Device that accompanies the app for $60 on my store.
This device is required for the app to work, you can create your own,…Continue
