I just realized this is the very first blog I ever wrote :)
RTK GNSS is an interesting topic for many quadrotor diyers like myself. It can provide stable sub meter coordinates which is very attractive for autonomous quadrotor flights. Initially, I tried RTKLIB on windows platform, and the result is pretty encouraging. However, I cannot imagine to have a windows running computer on a quad. Intel edison is another option for me: reasonably priced, small enough, and…Continue
From The Verge:
Audi, like pretty much every other automaker under the sun, continues to introduce more and more automated driving features for its cars. The next step, says the company, will be machine…
Some of you might be familiar with the Black Magic Probe, but some might not. As you know most UAV autopilots these days use one of the many STM32 microcontrollers. They are based on the ARM Cortex-M core family. Most of the boards also have either a JTAG or at least…Continue
It is amazing to see how fast our industry is advancing. Reliable, repeatable data collection is no longer the challenge it once was. Through the efforts of many of you on this…Continue
Hello everyone. I have been working on a "hoverbike" configuration, and got a small but decent prototype up and running recently. Thought I would share.
It is 3d printed, about 6 inches long. It is modified from the initial print, which didn't give the dual tail rotors enough leverage to…Continue
We are currently on the 5th prototype of the DeltaQuad VTOL and today we have put it through its paces with a 60KM autonomous flight. Over at DronesLab we have been working on this machine for more than a year and are in the final stages before releasing it to market. Above is a sneak preview.
The 60KM flight was planned after settling on…Continue
A new system from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) is the first to allow users to design, simulate, and build their own custom drone. Users…
We are glad to announce the start of crowdfunding campaign for Nimbus – racing drone with full carbon fiber monocoque body.Continue
Hello! I am sales from Skywalker Technology Co., Ltd.
Recently, we launch new professional mapping survey aircraft, Skywalker X5-PRO. Now, let me take eye feast about this aircraft.…
Hi All, Sony has actually given us something to think about.
The Sony FDR X3000 Action Cam has 4K resolution, but for our use, the BOSS…Continue
This video shows me flying a Syma X5C quadcopter, with the factory closed-source flight controller replaced by a Quanum Pico 32-bit brushed FC. I followed the directions in the "Visible Drone" chapter of this excellent new …Continue
"Morphology plays an important role in behavioural and locomotion strategies of living and artificial systems. There is biological evidence that adaptive morphological changes can not only extend dynamic performances by reducing trade-offs during locomotion, but also provide new functionalities. …
I wanted to announce the successful first forward flight with the Local Motors/Airbus VTOL UAV. Powered by a Pixhawk 1 with Arduplane 3.7.1, weighing in at 54.85lbs!
I was called in three weeks ago to help them design, build,…Continue
Our team of world-class engineers continues working on wireless power technology, and we aim to deliver industrial solution next year – to provide safe and efficient high-power long distance wireless power transmission, and deploy wireless power networks for drones in cities across the globe.
We are glad to present new video of the drone…Continue
