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:
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
