Lately, a lot of companies have commercialized their own RTK GPS receiver. On this blog I will provide information about accurate landings based on an AsteRX-m UAS receiver which works on L1 and L2 frequency.
I’ve tested landings with an f450 DJI frame with the following…Continue
It's been almost a decade since I launched DIY Drones (March 2007) and we've both grown hugely as a community and an industry in the intervening years. Drones work great, they're cheap and widely available, and both the the Dronecode and ArduPilot development communities that got their start here…Continue

An architect studying at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia in Barcelona, Spain, has today released details of a design for the drone transportation hub of the future. This project is unique for two reasons - the first is that the design repurposes a disused bullfighting ring from the early 1900s, and the second is that he has released the design and associated models to the community for comment, modification and…Continue

This could be a record breaking. The above video shows a demo with Andruav to actually control a RC Car from LA in Cairo using Andruav, the distance is 12,193km 7576 miles between the driver in LA & the car in Cairo.
The demo was done in my home, and the car is pretty fast, so a caution was required when controlling it…Continue
I read this on the newspaper today and i think this is one interesting genius way to land a UAV (the bird style).
These researchers from the University of Bristol and BMT Defence Services did a great job :-D well done!
The article you can read it here …Continue
Swift Navigation, the San Francisco-based startup building centimeter-accurate GPS technology that will power a world of autonomous vehicles, is proud to announce that two of its co-founders, Fergus Noble…Continue
For decades, NASA has used computer models to simulate the flow of air around aircraft in order to test designs and improve the performance of next-generation vehicles.

Here is another take on our wearable control tray format, this time with an embedded Win tablet PC that does it all for you. It has the same footprint as our previous trays (e.g.…Continue
With the increasing interest in the use of multi-rotor UAVs for long range applications such as pipeline inspection, large-area mapping, transporting packages or even people, the question arises: “how far can they fly?”.
In this post I’ll present a theoretical approach, an experiment and a conclusion to answer this question. Let’s start with some basic theory that can be used for all flying things. The distance d that a UAV can cover, flying at a constant…Continue
Sorry to see them go. They had a great idea and worked really hard to get it right, but ran out of time and money. …Continue
Hi again, this is my custom designed tray for my Graupner MZ-24. My goal was to build a small tray that can be removed easy without any tools and small enough to be put next to my transmitter in my bag. I think I succeed... :)

What a great application for small ROV
Cool and informative video of DJI releasing their new GS Pro feature. DJI’s Ground Station Pro makes it easy to plan complex flight missions while automatically collecting images for precision mapping.
