Thought it about time I posted something about my new project, which is all about getting way too many sensors airborne on something interesting. I've flown fixed wing models before (many years ago), multirotors look like more fun.
So far I have a PixFalcon, a Pi2 and…Continue

This is the second instalment in a series in which we test the precision of different drones and autopilots by flying them on a standard photogrammetry mission created in UgCS.
Last week we published a test of DJI Phantom 4 where we tested the precision of this drone on our photogrammetry route. In…
This is my second post in the series called "FlightZoomer 3 Innovation Previews". The first was this one: Maximized terrain awareness for drone pilots

I love the OpenMV board, a $65 open source computer vision module that combines a camera and powerful M7 processor with a nice built-in Micropython interpreter and OpenCV-like computer vision library. It's also got a fantastic IDE that makes using…Continue
This year we will be at XPONENTIAL 2017 (May 8-11, Dallas). We have a small booth for startups. We are very excited because it is the first fair we attend in the United States.…
Cool Atomo prototyping kits from HK.
"There are a number modules, including I/O boards, network expansion boards and even power supplies for bigger projects. For example, the project below has four I/O adapters and a power supply all connected to a Raspberry Pi. This means you can do some really interesting things with robotics and even…Continue
From The Verge:
The official Raspberry Pi magazine just announced that over 12.5 million of the…
We long ago decided that the controller of the Hybrix20 was going to be a Pixhawk. Some customers tell us that Pixhawk is not the right platform for our product but we would like to work on those few things that are missing to fit a drone of these features.
Nice to see a 3DR Iris+ there, but I'm slight afraid it got totally destroyed afterward ;-) Check out DroneClash for more mayhem. Looks fun!
In a real life video game of sorts, four teams will battle simultaneously. They can use as many drones as they like, but each…
Precis RTK system is being used for some pretty cool stuff. Mr. Stephen Noble, owner of Drone Surveying, used Precis RTK boards to provide land survey and aerial photography service in Australia. By leveraging L1/L2 GPS frequencies for accuracy and reliability, when fixed in RTK or PPK mode, their equipment provides centimeter absolute accuracy.…Continue
