Today I am going to introduce my UAV Bixler project.
I bought this Bixler airplane from H.King about several months ago and wanted to put pixhawk in it to test how well it can fly autonomously.
After receiving the plane I searched the web to get any information about how to modify the plane. There are many DIY examples on such thing however most of them requires cutting the fuselage half or cutting the entire nose section. I think this…Continue

Rather than simply give the usual monthly traffic snapshot, I thought I'd give the data…Continue

I thought people here might be interested in a project that I’ve been working on for a while.
There are no affordable extended duration underwater exploration projects and I’ve developed a hardware platform to provide this capability. The glider uses a mixture of 3D…Continue
Okay, there is so much stuff in the title so let's start with the generator on the prototype
This is the prototype, the generator is only for demonstration purpose because the generator at the moment is made from a nitro engine with all the connected problems (vibration and fuel consumption). A good thing…Continue

Today, I’ll tell you more about the 18000mah 6s, which is the updated version of our TATTU Pluse. Tattu pluse 2.0 smart battery.
It’s specially made for agriculture spraying, aerial photography survey drones and some others. Because of the stable discharge curve and super large capacity, it provides you long enough flying time for most of the tasks.
It has 6 cells, it’s a quite large battery in terms of the 18000mah capacity. Comes with 15C discharge…Continue
In earlier posts I described HackflightSim, an open-source quadcopter flight simulator built on the V-REP robotics simulation platform, using actual C++ flight-control firmware. After seeing the kinds of beautiful,…Continue

I just made a bet with some local professional jammer manufacturer who is too confident with their product.
I'll take them out if I can manage a flyaround over their premises.
Their product is no joke though. As far as I could understand, it scans the entire spectrum and jams the suspectable frequencies but obviously there's something more to it which they won't tell me.…Continue
