At Maker Faire NYC this weekend, Arduino's Massimo Banzi announced that the long-awaited ARM-based Arduino, called the DUE, would be out in November.
I just want to share with the DIYdrones community my project GuerrillaDrone. It's a Y6 copter with a onboard beamer for video projections in the public space.
As you know in Spain we have a strong crisis with a massive injection of money to the banks meanwhile thousands of people are evicted frome their houses, so the…
Yep you read it right, historic day for sUAS everywhere. Oh except in America ;-)
French Civil Aviation Authority, the DGAC, awarded Delair-Tech the first authorisation ever issued to a UAS company in France, for a civil UAS to fly over 100 km in French airspace.
Delair-Tech is based in Toulouse and specialised in the design and manufacturing of long…Continue
This is a big step towards the legal use of drones I believe. I never heard of this company but it seems they've been working hard with a nice focus. Nice design too with the small exchangeable 'sensor' bay. More info on the certification can be fount at …Continue
My new book launches today! You can get it here (hardcover or Kindle)
If you liked The Long Tail, my first book, you'll love this. It's about…
Function: Patrol Robot
I put Box-T together to keep an eye on my garden. We’ve got a variety of creatures that like the vegetables as much as we do, so when a creature comes into the garden, it’s Box-T’s job to chase them out.
He's not pretty, but I can disassemble and…Continue

Hi all, here is what you can expect from that plateforme with 10 amp ESC and KDA 20/26
Hello everyone, I'm making a new video game that lets you fly combat drones around in Google Earth and blow stuff up.
Please check out my project page for details. This game won't get made if drone geeks like you won't support it!…Continue
I finally received my Makerbot Replicator (makerbot.com) and I am VERY impressed. After printing a handful of objects off of Thingiverse and dialing in my printer I promptly began work on my version of 3D printed quadcopter. I had a fair bit of practice using Google Sketchup from time is spent designing a…Continue
Using EC3 connections on my quad was a good idea...except when it applied to the AttoPilot 90A sensor from SparkFun. The goal for adding this sensor to the system was to be able to remove it cleanly if needed. The sensor pcb design was…Continue
I just got the most recent issue of IEEE Robotics and Automation magazine, which has a theme of quadcopters as robotics research platforms. There is a large article describing the various attitude estimation and control algorithms used in Arducopter, OpenPilot, Paparazzi, Pikhawk,…
HefnyCopter Firmware works in KKv2.1 as in the demo
can switch between X-Mode & Plus-Mode.
there is also HefnyCopter2 that works on KK2 it has more new features:
I made up these hi tech shock absorber legs for my grandsons quad we are building. Considering the hours I often spend to find a better design for making copter legs that don't disintegrate on every hard landing, It took me about 10 min to stop laughing from the simplicity of the brilliance of this light bulb…Continue
