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:

I present you ABDIAS, an indoor blimp drone project.
ABDIAS came from the need to create an indoor drone, able to move autonomously,…Continue
We are developing a technology for automated landing navigation without GPS or better to say with higher accuracy than standard GPS signal. I think, there can be a lot of various utilisations of such technology in dyidrones world. After a year of development, when we tried many different…Continue
So today me and some other students were sitting in the workshop with nothing to do- bad weather canceled our routine flight. Seeing all the Lego mindstorm pieces sitting around, we decided to do something fun:…Continue
AirbotServices fixed wing is based on the well known XUAV Talon EPO frame. This plane has a standard wingspan of 1720mm . Although its wings are quite wide (total wing surface is 60 dm2 -…Continue
This past week I was luckily involved with the first ever Drone Zone/UAV Challenge that was part of the annual National Championship Air Races in Reno Nevada. The contestants where flying quads and hexacopters raging from micro to around 700mm in size. There were three events. Weight lifting, obstacle…Continue
Got the "Payloader Max" out for a public demo at the weekend, and it worked well! This is it dropping a 2.5kg load in a Swisspost box. Unfortunately, the full ramp up to a 5kg load run was halted when...
