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 autopilot runs a variety of powerful free and open UAV software systems from the Dronecode Foundation, including:
Nothing too groundbreaking here other than the post production treatment. Just a really fun use of quadcopters and sound effects for the holiday weekend. A little stabilization and post work can go a long way on some GoPro footage. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Hi All. We wanted to share a useful tool for those creating drone maps and 3D models. We've just launched a free tier, made for the DIY community, enabling you to upload any exif-tagged drone imagery and get back high resolution data. It's simple - just upload and forget.
For the fun of it we made an Android app allowing a sender phone and a receiver phone to act as a remote control. The reciever phone is connected to a Polulo Maestro servo card with Usb Host.
It work pretty fine actually.
We use some nice piece of communication software…Continue
Multirotors are underactuated, thus controlling interaction with the environment such as aerial manipulation has some problems. However, although these problem can be addressed using multi-DOF actuators or some novel control techniques, multirotors suffer from short flight time and limited…Continue
The Quanum i8 Radio was developed specifically for APM/PixHawk users. The dial has pre-set PWM positions that can be assigned by the user via Mission Planner software. Along with 2 sliders for gimbal control and 8 channels in total the Quanum i8 is a groundbreaking radio and the first radio system in the market developed specifically for Ardupilot users. The included receiver is also…
