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 home of ArduPilot (now known as APM), the world's first universal autopilot platform (planes, multicopters of all sorts and ground rovers). Today the Pixhawk and APM 2.6 autopilots run a variety of powerful free and open UAV software systems, including:
Amazon proposes drones-only airspace to facilitate high-speed delivery

It's not a new achievement using wifi as Telemetry but this UART to WiFi module has really long range (up to 400 meters), and unbeatable price. Very small form factor (about 2cm x 1.5cm) and light (3 gr). Great for the small sized UAVs. And your Smart Phone or Tablet will become a GCS with no additional hardware. And with module's available GPIOs…Continue

The flying wing design I have been working on for some time now has been slowly evolving as I have learned more about aerodynamics and expanded my skill set with modelling tools of various forms. I have recently completely re-surfaced my design with new aerofoil sections and better, more consistent surface…Continue
Tricopters, quadcopters, hexacopters, octocopters, etc.
The drone-world is evolving quite fast and nowadays one can see very curious vehicles and configurations that surprisingly (or not) are able to fly properly.
This is due to the possibility that some open source autopilots like Pixhawk…Continue
We wanted to share a fun video we made recently. Our drones can interact with obstacles and humans, which is opening amazing new applications, be it for accessing hard-to-reach places or for having fun with them.
We achieve that through a passively rotating protective cage an control algorithms that keep the drone stable at all times. More than just a…Continue

This is a video introduction to controlling self-driving cars, specifically using PID-control. Special emphasis is placed on how the proportional, integral, and derivative gains affect the performance of the vehicle.
