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…

Finally I have a good UAV ground station.

Posted on March 2, 2014 at 10:54am 16 Comments

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.

Holden Drone by CAT2. Some summer testing with Arduplane

Our Holden Drone has been finished for some for some time now but I have not had time to edit and upload any video until now.

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.
