"José. Enhorabuena! Though I have a question. Why did you stick to GPRS? Why not let the modem be 3G or 4g? GPRS usually has a lot of latency (several seconds). Regards"

naish commented on Jose Alberto Soler's blog post Airstring is live on Kickstarter
"Nice product.   Unfortunately It's hard to justify the cost even on a professional application. The telemetry cost more than the Autopilot. A satellite SDB modem cost nearly the same.  Also 3G it's old now, makes no sense to buy…"

Today we announce that the Airstring project is live on Kickstarter and you can reserve your own Airstring module to connect your drone to the…

Airstring. Easy to install, small footprint, GSM Telemetry

Posted on May 4, 2016 at 11:39am 15 Comments

We have developed a small GSM telemetry module that connects easily to a Pixhawk FC.

I think the cellular network and IP based telemetry is the way to go for most prosumer/commercial drones. It allows you to forget about transmitting power, frequency, antenna polarization, etc.

We are designing…

DJI targeting the commercial market again

Posted on April 18, 2016 at 2:00am 18 Comments

For a long time DJI has sort of forgotten the commercial market, apart from filmmakers.

  • Triple redundancy,…
