There was a joke that one could take the gimbal from a quadcopter, flip upside-down, put it on a handle, and it becomes a handheld gimbal for use on land. It was an intriguing idea. I would like to share our interesting experience in the design process.
Once connected, navigate to the Standard Parameter's screen, scroll down and change the CH6_FUNCTION from Disabled to RCPassThru. This opens the connection for the tilt function via the paddle. Once changed click Write Params at the top.Continue
We've been developing this RC airship over the past two years. Features include 1 hr Endurance, 3-5 amp battery, 400g payload, camera gimbal, FPV, Low vibration, crash survivable, Helium recovery
and storage after each day of use.
Welcome to the LED - Long Endurance Drone…

This is how I went about installing a Feiyu-Tech MINI 3D Gimbal to my SOLO.
I would like to strongly emphasize that this modification will void your 3DR SOLO warranty completely and entirely. If you are not comfortable with the voiding of said warranty please do not…Continue
We would like to share with you a project we've been working on at SPH Engineering. We have developed an adapter that makes it possible to connect and use DJI gimbals / camera systems with virtually any other drone or autopilot.
It was designed as a part of our tethered drone system AirMast…Continue
Video taken from a TBS Style Quad using a GoPro Hero 3 Silver the camera is mounted on the frame with small vibration mounts and no gimbal.
This is the area surrounding our club flying site near Broughshane, Northern Ireland
check out our thermal camera on one of the custom endurance builds.
We were able to improve the video quality significantly and it looks very smooth with gimbal stabilization.
It it able to show warm bodies on the ground from few hundred feet up.
We are selling this complete thermal kit…
let me introduce my latest project, a 3D printed gimbal for MobiusHD camera. I call it GimBALL regarding of it's shape...
My goal was to make a closed, aerodynamic shaped gimbal, which can be used in the front of a plane (ie. X-UAV Talon), up to 100 km/h airspeed. So I tried to make thisthing as…Continue
Due to my poor Flying skills, I had to search for a way to reduce the damage due to hard landing. This is what I come up with and it works well. However at times it is too bouncy.Continue
This video shows the demonstration of a variable-pitch quadrotor autonomous takes off and lands (ATOL) on a moving carrier.
The system architecture is a carrier based vision system.
It use visual positioning result to eliminate the GPS bias between UAV and carrier, thus it can provide continuous and accurate positioning result for ATOL…
after finishing my last project, I'm ready for the next challenge.
However, right now I can't afford to start another project and buy components for development, although I'd have ideas of course.
So I'd like to offer my experiences in 3D modelling, printing and basic programming skills for some…Continue
I continue my blog with the integration of GimBALL into the nose of an X-UAV Talon.
Because of complexity and available space in the Talon's nose, I decided to build it with 2-axis stabilized setup.
I hope I'll be able to test it in the air soon, and will share some test videos. Till then, here…Continue
The Groundhog was at least twice as big and probably three time as heavy as many other competitors. Why? Because it is built for endurance (flight time 35mins+) and also because it's what I have as my development platform. It normally flies outdoors of course...
Ah, so that means no…Continue
This is about some experiments I’m doing using python and openCV and of course one of my drones… In this case the drone used for taking the videos, was my hexacopter (Alduxhexa).
The point is to explore different techniques and algorithms to track colours, objects and the…Continue
Part Two: Here is the original picture of the finished product:
This is the second part of a 2-part series on 'How to build a High-Definition FPV UAV using a Raspberry PI with HD camera, using a high speed WiFi link.
In my first post on the subject (located …Continue
While there has been a lot of interest in use of Intel Edison on drones, it has been quite challenging to get this tiny board configured for any practical use. FlytOS now brings the power of advanced drone applications to the Intel Edison platform. With FlytOS, you can make use of your…
This is my second post in the series called "FlightZoomer 3 Innovation Previews". The first was this one: Maximized terrain awareness for drone pilots
The innovation highlight presented in the video…Continue
