HD FPV over cellular w/ proxy server

We have spent the past year developing a system to fly drones over the internet. We now have a hexacopter that can be flown from anywhere in the world using a joystick via APM Planner or Mission Planner (working on an iPad app as well). The latency is below 500 msecs and the video quality is 720p w/ 25fps. Obviously the flying requires the drone to be flown at a location with decent cellular coverage but we have been optimizing the platform to…

Cularis 7 Channel Glider With Crow Flaps and Washout Taranis Config EEPE

Here is my pixhawk run Cularis Motor Glider with a very custom Taranis Setup.

Complex Taranis configuration can be time consuming, so I'm sharing my config so that others can re-use it.



Mine allows you to setup your flaps asymmetrically where they go down more than up, or only down. You decide how you want…

Multiplex Cularis FPV build with ardupilot

After spending quite a while building a pixhawk based Multiplex Cularis with FPV, and lots of foam cutting to fit everything (including 3 cameras), here is the result:

Fitting all the APM and FPV gear in there is kind of tight, but it's…

300-sized 3D printed quadrocopter for FPV

Hi, let me introduce my latest plan, a 300-sized FPV quadrocopter. My goal was to design a small 3D printed quadrocopter that can be printed on any cheaper DIY 3D printer. Additionally I wanted to simplify wiring and maintenance. So I decided to make a modular design. The hard-cased…

Fox Business Network's drone coverage

I work in TV news.  We've been doing a lot of coverage on the new FAA rules, particularly how the "line of sight" rule could impact businesses like Amazon.  Had a chance to appear on Varney & Co... the world's best business news show hosted by the brilliant Stuart Varney.  While Stuart knows quite a bit about finance and politics, tech is not his strong suit.  So I decided to put myself, and my drones on the show today to explain how flying outside of line of sight…

FPV gimbal for zoom camera

It’s nice to fly around with your copter or plane, watching the surrounding area with a live view. Anyone who tried FPV knows that feeling. There is much to see with the regular equipment, but if you want to see some detail from a higher altitude, there is a problem. Normally it’s good to have a wide…

FPV testflight 3D printed crossfire

I upgraded my 3D printed crossfire with a Boscam transmitter TS351 and a all-in-one monitor RX-LCD5802. The FPV camera is a GoPro Hero 3. Simultaneously a Sparkfun GPS LS23060 was added. This implied adding code for reading, parsing and processing nmea data. I have chosen a complementary filter approach for fusion of accelerometer data and GPS data. I managed to…
