Micro Drone of the Future

Posted on September 28, 2015 at 1:07pm 21 Comments

I've been looking at micro drones lately and I'm now sure it is likely that the future of the drone is the tiny drone much like this mechanical dragonfly.

With the use of very tiny piezoelectric actuators that draw very little current I believe it is now possible to create these very tiny flying…

The future of the Micro Drone

Posted on September 16, 2015 at 10:25am 49 Comments

I see a very exciting future for the micro drone! Say the size and weight of this Hobby King Q-Bot quadcopter. The reason being these small drones are far quieter and offer far less danger to people, aircraft, cars, motorcycles, children and even pets!

I see a world of useful and safe personal drones with all the…

Are you still repairing APM's  If so I have one for you, Please advise

RocketMan,

I'm currently working on a college senior design project consisting of a drone with 6 degrees of freedom. While browsing this website, I saw your post on Caleb Clark's page. My project is very similar to his. About the size of a soccer ball with 6 degrees of freedom. Except my drone will not be going up in space, instead it will serve as a satellite simulator.  What grabbed my attention about your post is that I am considering the use of both variable pitch propellers and reaction wheels and you mentioned just that in your comment.  Do you have any more advice on how it could work?  I'm a the team leader of this senior design project and we are currently in the research stage of the design process.  I joined this social network to gain any guidance from UAV enthusiasts as I continue to conduct research on my project.  Any info, sources, or leads would help significantly.

Thank you,

James
