The largest community for amateur Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Use the tabs and drop-down menus above to navigate the site. (About us/Site rules)
This community created the Arduino-based ArduPilot, the world's first universal autopilot (planes, multicopters of all sorts and ground rovers). The APM 2.6 autopilot hardware runs a variety of powerful free UAV software systems, including:
We're currently searching for talented electrical engineers to join the 3DR team in San Diego. If you have 3+ years of experience focused on board, module and system-level products, we want to hear from you.

Very interesting documentary by BBC. I am currently attending a course about machine learning. When I saw Asimo simultaneously listening to 3 people at one time, i thought it has to have at least 2 microphones. Well, it has 8. Drone/Robot era is coming. I think this ovie is a great insight for our community!
I would like to introduce GPS-GLONASS module with optional magnetometer. Major benefits of using those mixed GNSS modules is fast and accurate position fix, because it use both constellation of satellites to predict position.
It supports 3 types of I2C magnetometers from different manufacturers: most popular HMC5883, MAG3110 and MMC3140. Magnetometer on module allow to mount it in magnetic…Continue
The MaxiSwift flying wing has donne successfully a low altitude flight autonomous mission (< 30m AGL) under flight plan piloted by the ArduPlane v2.73-xp1. A color camera onboard with an OSD display in real time the video of the flight and the data on the ground station screen. (Wind 7 km/h, gusting 15 km/h)
- Avionic setup:
- ArduFlyer v2.5.2…
This multirotor has the ability to go full 3D flight at an amazing speed. It is going to revolutionize the multirotor world.
