The current issue of online/iPad magazine The New Inquiry is all about drones. It's a bit arty/academic/political, but pretty interesting all the same. The content is subscriber-only, but it's just $2/mo to get and you'll have instant access. Yes, DIY Drones is…Continue
RC Arduino is a cool site that documents how to add an Arduino with gyro sensor to a RC car to make it more more controllable, basically "driving by wire", rather than directly, with the Arduino making sure it doesn't spin out.
I am sure we have all been there; there must be a servo connector loose somewhere, you firmly press each one with fingers too large to press just one connector, you wondering whether the wires in each connector are well-crimped, you stare in dismay at at the spaghetti…

We placed clear plastic, tape, a phone book, dow foam, aluminum foil, static brushless motor, powered and turning brushless motor, powered tx 2.4 GHz, and powered vtx 5.8 GHz…Continue

This episode we focused on getting the APM's data logging feature working, as well as integrating the results with Google Earth and the Mission Planner. It works really well! We're looking forward to putting it on the Shrike and start recording our flights.
See you Saturday,
