CROWNSVILLE, Md. - Steve Barnett has been flying unmanned aerial systems for more than 30 years — long before the word “drone” started making global headlines.
But now, the 65-year-old Army veteran and model-airplane enthusiast finds himself…Continue
These videos are a bit old, but I wanted to post them anyway. This is my first quadcopter. I had no experience at all in that. I'm more into airplanes than copter things.
Anyway, here's a short description. I'm using 4 380W (1100kV) motors and 6600mAh of energy spread in two 18.5V lipo packs. On the videos I'm flying with 12 inches props (the ones found on…Continue

Another quad that i found on hobbyking. It caught my eye as it has a monitor inbuilt to the controller. I've seen a few concept controllers maybe this could work?
A nice shortcut to newcomers with a 3-axis gyro stabilization system.
3.5" LCD screen which matches some phones.Range is limited but i suppose some hacking might sort…Continue
This is my first blog here and hopefully not my last. The picture is obviously the frame of my DIY Quadrocopter. I'm waiting on a delivery of the electronics to complete it. I got anxious and couldn't wait to share my project with you all so this will be part one of more to come, so…Continue
I hope you folks enjoyed my overview of the Brookstone 2.0 Rover. In my next blog (Part 1) I'm…Continue

From another group (populated mainly by photographers interested in aerial photography), here's a link to B & H Photo, selling a GoPro and Phantom in one package.
B & H is one of the largest resellers of photo and video equipment in the US, so it's quite a…Continue
There's been a lot of random discussion about the Phantom and whether or not it's worth the money, does it fly well, etc. I say yes to all. Here a quick video of my set-up.
I also fly an Arducopter and XAircraft X-650-V8 but for quick and easy set-up and great flying the Phantom is a blast. Won't lift the heavy cameras or fly waypoints but for GoPro shots…Continue
Here's some notes on fiddling with MAVLink. Andreas and I started at the bottom of the stack (the byte stream) and are working our way up. Along the way I filled in a few possible holes in the documentation.…Continue
They are certainly trying.
The PHANTOM Vision is the only quadcopter on the market to offer professional-level multi-rotor flight control technology, an intelligent GPS-based autopilot system, an integrated HD camera and an iOS app for full camera control. The PHANTOM Vision also comes with a remote control unit containing pre-programmed…Continue
Finally got some time to put together some footage, more videos to come
Hope you guys like it!
