Really nice to see UAV being use in a good way. But what I am wondering Transport Canada wants
to promote safe use…Continue
A few years ago, Ludovic Daler showed us a flying robot that he was working on that had the ability to “walk” by rotating its wings while on the ground. We love seeing designs like this that are completely, utterly out of the box, and Ludovic promised even…
It was bound to happen.
A quadcopter has recently crashed into a Mexican supermarket parking lot located somewhere near the country's California border, and one of the possible reasons is that its payload was just…Continue

Actually it's 3DR's rather sane Colin Guinn, who did an excellent job presenting his material and seemed to impress Chairman Lamar Smith.
Colin Guinn, an executive with 3D Robotics, released the unmanned aerial vehicle during a hearing on the subject of drone development, much to the amazement of the committee’s chairman, Representative Lamar Smith…
Hi everybody, i would like to show you my advance with the teleoperation topic, the main objective is use the Novint Falcon to operate the copter, avoid collisions and feel the velocities and distance to an obstacle by the force feedback. The firmware is for the pixhawk, based on some of the ArduCopter 3.2 libraries.
Also the copter is able to fly in external…
Its very early to judge, whether Microsoft Hololens is going to be a good product, but from what i see it could be the ultimate FPV solution. Just imagine Telemetry, video screen and a natural view of the drone all on a holographic, augmented reality glasses. The setup should…Continue
There is a house hearing UAS integration occuring today at 2:30pm EST. It will be available live at this link:
Typically, CSPAN has the video available for…
from last year's builds . gone overboard where design is over function. no practical reasons why but just for the fun of it.
whether or not will find useful UAV function for these design if ever. just got bored of the common designs as soon they hit saturation point.
You might have seen this video before. Recently there's been some rumours about IMU issues of the new DJI drone Inspire.
The company just confirmed the issue, and they are fixing it in a hurry. It might never happened, if it was an open source software ;), just saying.…Continue
Thanks to this, users can easily identify autopilot's…Continue

Recently I was approached about one of my previous blog posts on Vineyard Surveys by a Drone Startup based in San Francisco, Drone Deploy. In my previous blogs I’ve stated the importance of a whole system approach to UAV work with a smooth end-to-end flow. It’s not about the drone, or how sexy it is. It’s using the…Continue
So you may have seen my past blog post I finally got my 16000mah battery just did a 46min loiter I did the logs but the apm2.6 wont store that much log but I timed the flight with a stopwatch I will take video tomorrow and post it asap I was hoping to get close to 40min but it has surpassed my…Continue
