This is a pretty large quadcopter. I wonder what flight controller they are using. Would it be great if we can get Arductoper branding on this? Definitely need custom code for the heavy lifting.
ArduPlane team leader Andrew Tridgell and the rest of the Canberra UAV team show their stuff in this required video for the Outback Challenge. The first part is all checklist stuff, but flight starts at 11:41. Listen closely for the ArduPlane automated voice reports!
So it's changed a bit from what came in the original box...
can't fly very well...
Some points on this airframe that are going to serve me well:

Today I had my second test flight with the latest Firmware.
The results are incredible. The quad was very stable and solid also on very hard manouvres.The improvements are beyond my expectations.
The Board tested was the VRIMUFULL with the MP32V3F1 and the BMP085 barometer.

In this video, we demonstrate fast moving obstacle detection and avoidance for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. Sensing and avoidingmoving objects is essential to autonomous flight.
Our experimental setup consists of a quadrotor platform equipped with a forward facing monocular…Continue
Yee haw! Save your money boys and girls. Looks like Iran may be going into the flight controller business soon. Once commercialized, the RQ-170 based flight controller should outperform DJI, and Arducopter. Maybe even give Mikrokopter a run for its money.
Yesterday was "let's be unfair to the DJI Wookong WKM day!" here at Build Your Own Drone, I've had a growing number of people asking just how good the WKM Flight Controller from DJI Wookong is, & how much setting up is needed to…Continue
I did't know how much important is choose the right propellers, but after changing on my multiwii and arducopter (3dr) i get no vibrations and fly very well :)
this is the video:
Dji is the best multirotor system out there for the price it lives up to the hype. I bought a f330 pre built arf kit used save about a…Continue
With the arrival of my 3DR radio, I discovered that I had quite a collection of boxes from open source hardware companies. I think it's safe to say they may be setting the pace in the world of electronics delivery packaging!
I'm thrilled to report that my radio kit arrived and it works well. Andreas is likewise happy with his kit.
Fixing the air unit…Continue
Today I went to a mega store and I found this "broken" car for just 9.99 pounds, so I decided to buy it and replace the crappy car that I mounted all the stuffs.
The next week I will buy 1 ultrasound sensor, extension IO and a compass, them should help the car to drive in a specific direction ( i.e. to the north ) and I am going to avoid the…Continue
On this week's episode of MyGeekShow we repaired the Nova after it's horrific crash last week, tested our airspeed sensor to see how accurate it is, raced the Raptor around the field trying to measure it's speed, and finally installed a camera on both the Nova and the Raptor. And I may have crashed the Nova again. Yeah. Not good.
This is a new format, and obviously longer. Let us know what you think!
I've just found an interesting & impressive concept of an flying object from Festo (those guys who also made the flying bird one year ago).
It's a quite interesting concept to get an object flying at low speed. I'd love to see such an object moving outside - but I guess this aircraft is hard to handle when it comes to windy or turbulent…Continue
Today is Friday and after dispatching all orders finally we are idle.
My MQ-202 MicroQuad was on the desk and airsoft guns were on sight.
Please watch all video we have a surprise in the end ;)
Have a nice weekend
I wonder if this could be used with the APM? Pretty interesting to see this now available for less than $300.
First! i'm bad in english but i try to explain everything i done and i have many question to help me if you can.
Last year thailand flood, This is my head video camera 9 km. from take off point.
And i have another camera under the plane for aerial photos…Continue
I know that this is the place of diyers but I am trying to compare Ardu-based copter with other solutions. And by taking into account the conterless hours I spent with Arducopter I can say I am quite satisfied .
This is a video of a friend of mine.
