Hi everyone.I would like to share my latest 7kg multicopter design with the DIY drones community.Having designed and operated fixed wing, helicopter and multicopter camera systems for a number of years now I have learned what is important, at least to my operation, namely low vibration, endurance and ease of use.The first two are fairly obvious but the ‘ease of use needs a little more explanation.I guess many of you will have suffered from drone pilots back after lifting and carrying an awkward…See More

Finally I have a good UAV ground station.

Having completed many UAV filming jobs from locations without vehicle access I was looking to improve the logistics of getting the equipment on site. I have occasionally left some vital components in the car 2km away I wanted to have everything (except the copter) in one box.

During these two merged flights we were testing most of the Arduplane modes including some tight figure 8 waypoint routes around the field. RTL, circle and FBW all worked well. This was all done line of…

Hi Vince,
I'm a tinkerer and an inventor myself and I noticed your servo zoom mount for your NEX camera. I was going to make one up myself but I felt I would ask if you would share. On that note I liked your 2 axis gimbal also! I wasn't considering printing one myself , but yours looked very light. Do you share your models ? I would certainly give you credit.
