FLIR TAU cores are often used in our "drone" community as a very simple thermal imagers. But what about to make from FLIR TAU full value thermal camera with USB3 or GigE (Gigabite Ethernet) output?

This video shows some recent flight test results from my PhD research on autonomous UAV docking, that was conducted with the Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR) at The University of Sydney. To the best of our knowledge, these experiments are the first time two UAVs have docked in mid-air.
Some of my other videos provide more specifics on the…Continue
I recently came across a very interesting Quad Copter from Aerosky call the X350. The don't mention the APM but in the manual it states that it is compatible with DroidPlanner and Mission Planner. The price is great if it flies as the advertise
For the RTF price of 399.00 I am considering getting one to test. It does not state anywhere that an APM/or compatible is in it. I thought that under the Open Source rules they had to mention the Group of Developers…Continue
Cansats are a can size satellite used for educating students to teach how to design and implement systems. Cansats are launched in small rockets which drop the cansat in around 100m ~ 3km altitude. From deployment and operation of the satellite is done in the same procedure as of the real satellites. However, in a dense country or in city regions, launching rockets…Continue

Yesterday, I shot this video with my MacBook Air and DroneThermal camera.
The results are promising. Thermal image resolution is only 80x60 pixel but sensitivity is not bad.
BTW, We designed an…

A publicity stunt that involved using a consumer quadcopter drone to deliver vegetables to a restaurant in the Netherlands has literally crashed and burned.
We've done a few autonomous and follow me videos but none of them showed footage from the air and we received a few requests to see how stable the aerial footage was in "Follow Me" mode. Here is the video-

You get a prize if you can beat our team at ping…Continue
