Hi, Just a quick note to people wanting to run APM Planner 2.0 on the Raspberry Pi 2 and don't want to build it from the source code. Community member Carpy has created a build to download.
It will run on any ARMv7 debian based platform, i.e. Ubuntu or Jessie, it's experimental so please…Continue
In light of the recent "Drone Slayer" in the news, we wanted to make a video to show what the common hobbyist drone can actually see from 200' up.
The drone slayer being William Meredith of Kentucky who shot down a drone he said was hovering as low as 10' over his yard. It turned out that after the drone pilot released his DJI Phantom 3 flight record, the…Continue

It's not a new achievement using wifi as Telemetry but this UART to WiFi module has really long range (up to 400 meters), and unbeatable price. Very small form factor (about 2cm x 1.5cm) and light (3 gr). Great for the small sized UAVs. And your Smart Phone or Tablet will become a GCS with no additional hardware. And with module's available GPIOs…Continue

The flying wing design I have been working on for some time now has been slowly evolving as I have learned more about aerodynamics and expanded my skill set with modelling tools of various forms. I have recently completely re-surfaced my design with new aerofoil sections and better, more consistent surface…Continue
Tricopters, quadcopters, hexacopters, octocopters, etc.
The drone-world is evolving quite fast and nowadays one can see very curious vehicles and configurations that surprisingly (or not) are able to fly properly.
This is due to the possibility that some open source autopilots like Pixhawk…Continue
Congrats to the ETH Autonomous Systems Lab for this milestone with a Pixhawk-powered fixed wing drone. Next stop: crossing the Atlantic! From the team:

We wanted to share a fun video we made recently. Our drones can interact with obstacles and humans, which is opening amazing new applications, be it for accessing hard-to-reach places or for having fun with them.
We achieve that through a passively rotating protective cage an control algorithms that keep the drone stable at all times. More than just a…Continue

This is a video introduction to controlling self-driving cars, specifically using PID-control. Special emphasis is placed on how the proportional, integral, and derivative gains affect the performance of the vehicle.
