I am super excited to be back on the board and ready to play with my new incoming APM! I have had some experience with the DJI Naza but I always felt that I was missing out on something. So here I am today about to begin my build.

It's customary and a tradition that we celebrate every new 1,000 members here and share the traffic stats. This time it's 41,000!!!!
There were 1.5 million page views in the last month! (we get around 50,000 pageviews a day on average). It took us just 23 days to get this latest 1,000…Continue
I am planning to use the RVOSD current sensor to measure the voltage and current of my system. Everybody knows that the power module from ardupilot is not compatible with 6s batteries. What I feel sorry. So i am interested to use the current sensor from a rvosd because is a really…Continue

Its T3 time again but first I have started tagging people that have entered T3 in the past on their member icons its a very small recognition for their valuable contributions which have driven APM forward faster than it might have without the competition. They have not only put their…Continue
In my past blog post "Tinkering with Neopixel LED-strips" and "Control high power LEDs (1W, 3W) from the APM 2.5 LED output", I have described a bit how to work with…Continue
Well, for a simulated 737 at least. via Hackaday:
[Andrea] didn’t want to dig around with the clunky point-and-click interface in FSX, so he created a virtual autopilot with a 2×16 LCD display and an Arduino to interact and set the most common…
Ok, it is not a paint roller. That is just what I thought when I first saw this. Personally, I find the concept interesting, and I can think of some unique uses, including as a remote control paint roller.
But, seriously, I wonder how much flight times might be improved if a "mission" was mostly rolled around on the ground, with only short hops over obstacles? I may have to contact my friend at BG and see if they could send me an evaluation model for…Continue
We are developing Flone: a interface that allows smartphones to fly.
Right now we are starting with the project, so first we design the airframe, it's a H quadcopter with space for electronics and free field of view for the camera of smartphone.
We would like to keep the design "mini" and easy to build.
Looks like a very interesting technology to use on a uav.
We've invented the world's first intelligent throwable camera, a ball capable of stabilized, full spherical 360° photography and video capture. Today, as this fledgling space begins to take flight, we're engineering state-of-the-art…
