sUAS News introduces one more platform to bring the news and current events to the community and public at large. Originally envisioned as a series of 60 second Public Service Announcements (PSA) “This Is My Drone” where civilian end-users would talk about some of the positives unmanned technology is capable of providing. For example, I’m farmer Brown, and…Continue

Last week, NASA and AUVSI invited a carefully selected, elite group of media (which obviously included IEEE Spectrum) to take a tour of the Unmanned Aircraft Systems programs at NASA Dryden. The Dryden Flight Research Center (DFRC)…Continue
I've created a new site, which I hope will become the repository for all Drone Laws and regulations around the world. My aim is to welcome credible posts on Drone* Laws for all the countries we fly in. The idea being is the local knowledge publishes their information here in easily readable…Continue
I'm currently working on DroneCafe.com to provide people with a place to hangout and talk about drone politics/politicians, drone/robotics news, and also a place to openly talk about militarized drones.

So I have been obsessed with robotics for quite some time and up until this year it was all based on walking - Humaniod, quad & hex walker robots. I have put together kits, pulled together parts from Lynxmotion - I have stuff all over, I am constantly tearing apart updating as new controller boards, sensors and the like come out. I…Continue
The new design of the Mugin UAV 3M is out.
It's a huge UAV platform with 300 mm wingspan. The platform caters to larger UAS projects such as universities or commercial projects. It's really not a beginner platform.

Successful Farming Magazine aired a drone/UAV in agriculture program nationally. I think it is a well produced and informative view of drone use in agriculture.

I've made two videos showing the ArduCopter Auto (and RTL in second video) capabilities of ArduCopter.
The first video is a flight with 5 waypoints at varying altitudes and includes AutoLand.
I only did not include Auto Takeoff in these videos but can confirm that also works well. There was limited takeoff space so I took…Continue

See what happens if two APM powered quads get too close to each other.
The innocent ArcticCoper was in loiter, the TBS Discovery was in stabilized trying to get close up. Slow motion footage shows how one motor of the AcrticCopter completely stops after hitting the TBS Discovery quad. The damaged propeller then drags one arm down of the TBS…Continue

Here is an excerpt from a NBC News article that has been linked to from the home page:
In 1917, Charles Kettering invented the Kettering Bug in Dayton, Ohio. Conceived as a flying torpedo, versions of it were tested but never used by the…
First, the problem is how to define a drone? You may think a drone is unmanned aerial vehicle. But how about an model plane with a camera…Continue
Welcome back to my build log/experiences with this project.
After playing around with and figuring out where to put the various bits I went on to add the XBee headers, powercable and 3 pin RX header to the PX4IOAR:
At this point I will skip further as the assembly is…Continue
