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, including:
We have presented this video to the kids during our open days a couple of weeks ago at ENAC, Toulouse. It is just one application of a guidance algorithm that we have developed and later implemented in Paparazzi. I was actually surprised about the performance since the planes only exchange information once per second (even we allow some…Continue
Using Paparazzi UAV and a Stock Parrot Bebop 2 with its ublox M8N GNSS chip replace by a M8P we managed to stream the RTCM3 stream over WiFi to the drone from our groundstation. The groundstation was connected to a ublox M8P operating in base station mode. The video demonstrates the bebop doing a pure GPS navigation task, sonar nor optical-flow were…Continue
We are testing the RTK GPS receiver from Septentrio, the AsteRX-m UAS with ArduCopter 3.4. The GPS can be used to land accurate as shown in the first part of our video. The land location was logged and loaded into the waypoint file in Mission Planner. In the second part we show an autonomous transportation of a…Continue
just wanted to show off our new thermal camera for UAVs.
Lighter than a GoPro this dual thermal setup features Flir Lepton sensor and a reference RGB camera. It is the smallest and most affordable drone thermal camera made specifically for airborne use. Plug-and-play with any analog video…Continue
Hi! Version 1.1 was just released of SidePilot, the iOS Groundstation app for Arducopter and PX4 (formerly called iMavlink).
New features include:
