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:
Today we’re going to find out how long it takes to charge the Tattu 4s 1800mah 75c and what the real world flight time is, in comparison to 1300 mAh batteries which are more common for racing drones.
When it comes to racing quadcopters, flight time is not as important as it is in the case of cruising drones. More important is the take-off weight and you need to keep it as low…Continue
Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) is a way to do position estimation and navigation without GPS, which is both useful for drones inside and for self-driving cars. Coming to the next release of the Dronecode/PX4 stack.
Tiziano Fiorenzani, an Italian engineer now working in the US, has one of the best YouTube channels on using open source drone software, especially, APM, Dronekit and Python. Above is just one example, on Drone Delivery with Python:
We are going to write a script that connects with the vehicle and waits for the operator…
Now Open Sourced at your disposal!
You can download the part files in part section. Enjoy :)
Special thanks to Chris and Natasha from Armattan…Continue
Thought I'd share some pics of my latest tricopter, it'll be the 10th version and the second 'flying prototype' (with any luck).
The design has come a long way, I suspect its still over target weight but I *really* want to get this thing flying.
Its all printed in…Continue
We are glad to release the latest firmware update to Precis OEM boards, the 1.15 version. Firmware V1.15 provides users with more robust RTK fix solution and accuracy. It provides other improved performance such as RTK solution of long baseline. Some known issues have been fixed as well. All update improves RTK positioning performance and high-precision navigation in more challenging…Continue
Spuntik GIS is widely used in condition surveying. Hi-definition 3D-models of buildings and constructions allows specialist to detect defects and deformations, more than, it is available to vectorize and save such areas using *.kml editor. Therefore, the result of inspection is 3D-map of defects and deformations.…Continue
