Why do we still need regular drones if we have VTOL aircrafts?

Hi All,I was wondering why we are still working on regular drones (multi-rotor) since VTOL aircraft have been made? Is there any advantage for copters over those VTOL aircraft?Continue

Dear All,I successfully managed to fly my quad-copter using pixhawk and an onboard computer (RPi). The goto, takeoff and land commands work both on SITL and on the copter. Now, I am trying to give…Continue

Whirligig replied to Nicolas-Michael El Jamal's discussion Why do we still need regular drones if we have VTOL aircrafts?
"Survey the number of VTOLs out there. The number is very small compared to helicopters or even multi-rotors. VTOLs are just complicated with all the extra moving parts to provide vertical thrust, vectoring of that thrust, and a control system that…"

"Well it will save you money in the long run. Sounds like you're throwing away batteries which is never cheap! Spend some money on a good charger and your batteries will love you. Never over discharge your batteries past 80-90%"

"So those chargers will help me prevent throwing away batteries? Aren't they a bit too expensive?"

"Get a better charger! I would recommend using an Icharger, 308DUO or 410DUO would do the job."

LiPo Battery Problems

Hi all!I am sick of using lithium polymer batteries lately. After using a battery for one month, it discharges faster then before. Also, while recharging it, I need to stay close to it for safety reasons (overheat, overcharge, explosions: as recommended on many blogs). And finally, each time the voltage on one of the cells drops below a certain threshold, I throw away the battery (NimH charging is damaging the batteries).Do you have any suggestion other than LiPo batteries? If no, what should I…See More

Pixhawk guided mode movement commands

Dear All,I successfully managed to fly my quad-copter using pixhawk and an onboard computer (RPi). The goto, takeoff and land commands work both on SITL and on the copter. Now, I am trying to give the copter movement commands to track a moving object on the ground. I tried using the send_ned_velocity but the copter is not moving. I tried the same command in SITL running in windows and the copter moves.Did anyone manage to do this successfully?Kindly note also that I am running a python script…See More
