This is a hardware review of an interesting product for FPV racers. I do not know for how long it exists but I could not find any other reviews on youtube.
This product consists in an integration of mutliple components you would otherwise need to solder and assemble together with lots of wiring, thus saving weight and making a…Continue
Please take a look at our newest Pixhawk based mapping setup with Easy Drone XL Pro and Sony QX1 and an additional FPV camera for live video feedback.
It takes advantage of a fairly large format imager on this cool Sony camera and gives you the ability to use high quality prime lenses. This rig will stay in the air for…Continue
As the popularity and availability of drones increases so do the ideas for applications. One such application is the use of drones for entertainment shows. While flying a pack of drones with synchronized moves in the air is no easy task, it can produce a truly stunning view, especially if the drones are equipped…Continue

Flirtey said its historic drone deliveries to date "have been stepping stones to store-to-home drone delivery." Flirtey is currently in discussions with retailers and food companies about delivery to people's homes, and CEO Matt Sweeny said store-to-home drone deliveries will start sooner than most…Continue
Here is a preview of my current project, a flight controller with onboard OSD targetted mainly at ArduPlane. The Board incorporates an OSD for FPV similar to that in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybab6q70icI . The OSD video out also…Continue
I normally don't like to post extremely short blogs that just link to another article, but I think this has been a long time coming.
I can't say that I hope for severe charges/fines against the operator (at this time), but I do hope that we only have to put up with one more season of seeing…Continue
Full disclosure: I was one of the judges. Too many great entries -- it was hard to pick a winner. From Popular Science:

Last year I was searching how to fly at safe low altitude to take the higher resolution photos that possible, to identify weeds and insects in crops and trying to know if a laser altimeter can do the task, first I bought a Lidar lite but looks unstable over rought terrain perhaps bad installed or configured and no more support to ask, but, in the…Continue
I think not and am expecting a resurgence of the good old heli.
This article puts forward a lot of good arguments for the helicopter (all be it in baby terms) but do you think there is truth in these claims?
A new Chinese unmanned helicopter might be the industry’s first critical step to a…Continue
I built this VTOL Anaconda for Tyler Perry and the new TV Series, DRONED, which will air on July 22 at 6:00pm on the Science Channel.
This plane was built from a Ready Made RC…Continue
Marine litter is a huge problem with lots of statistics that boggle the mind. Most people will also have heard of the North Pacific Gyre, or rather, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. It occupies a relatively stationary area that is twice the…Continue

Andrew recommended that I look at pixfalcon as a smaller pixhawk for some of my RC planes, so I got one for a bixler 2 build (he did recommend pixracer too, but that one has 6 PWM outputs instead of 8).
Here's my blog post on a bixler2 rebuild with a pixfalcon and Brotronics PowerTowerRX with backup lipo and buzzer:…Continue
Hi there friendly people of DIY Drones
I've been using and building drones for a few years now, and general shortcomings, I find are: noise, flight time, payload capacity, waterproof space for sensor and computing additions. These shortcomings of course all have good reasons to be there.
Some of the things I've done in the past are: made a really big rig (2m span) that's capable of…
