UgCS has been developed for more than 4 years and it is used in 159 countries - a fact that motivates us to continue improvement of UgCS. Although our Customer team would be glad to travel to 159 countries, but understanding, that we can’t meet all UgCS users in person - we…
We are introducing the new Professional Protogrammetry Quadcopter Harfang RTK. This is a Ready to Fly Drone, aimed to Professional users with a Low Price point and High End features. Flies 30+ minutes and complies with "light weight" standards!Continue
In this project, I will go through the process of designing and making a flight controller board from scratch for a micro-quadcopter. This board will be based on the ATMega328 microcontroller and will be used to control four coreless DC motors. The whole PCB making process from…Continue
This multi-rotor UAS will be used in search and rescue operations using object recognition to find a target and deliver a payload,…Continue
From TechCrunch. It works on Raspberry Pi!
I recently entered the first MAAXX-Europe competition to be held at the University of the West of England (UWE). On the surface it's a simple challenge in which UAVs must follow an oval circuit of one red line,…Continue
I signed up to the UAVSA association a while back. I have not benefited by this resource and have tried to cancel for 6 months. I have not been successful.

This is the video our first flight of the Disco from Parrot using the Paparazzi UAV system. Most of the drivers where already available, except for the PWM output on Linux-based autopilot. Many thanks to the ArduPilot community and especially Andrew Tridgell for his help and tips to…Continue
This is my first post in a series called "FlightZoomer 3 Feature Previews".
One of the coolest features for the next release of my FlightZoomer apps is a terrain elevation map and a vertical situation display. The look&feel of these features strongly borrow from the VSD (vertical situation display) and the TERRAIN display of the…Continue
