A friend of mine and myself are avid FPV pilots. We have developed a fast, agile and easy to transport FPV plane with a twist: It is crash resistant and extremely fun to fly.Continue
Here is another take on our wearable control tray format, this time with an embedded Win tablet PC that does it all for you. It has the same footprint as our previous trays (e.g.…Continue

Here a shared review of a quite cute and tiny FPV quad, the QX90.
It was unfortunately delivered to me with a built in DSM type receiver so I could not use it with my Taranis radio.
I therefore modded the electronics with another tiny board that is incredible : it integrates a F3 flight controller with all bells…Continue

I studied the beautiful DroneKit framework for talking with my students on this argument. Immediately they tried to develop some little Apps. Here one, that takes the time on laps when you fly with your racing drones (FPV CHRONO RACING). You can download it …

Finally I received all parts so I assembled the first prototype of my 170 mm FPV racer design (see previous posts for details and STL files).
All-up weight excluding battery and micro GPS is finally 286g.
And HOTT telemetry totally works!!! :)…
after uploading my initial design, I got several feedbacks. So I tried some configurations, and finally came up with this Rev3 design. The major difference is that the video TX antenna is between camera and…Continue
Basically I was inspired by the Jellybean X nano…Continue
I know most of us here are the DIY types but once in a while a really cool off the shelf product comes along. Check out the new Parrot Disco-
I know that antenna tracking is nothing new, but I had to share my excitement in getting mine built and working! My inner-nerd celebrated at the sound of the servo motors coming to life for the first time and I have been trying to perfect the pointing ever since.
My basic approach was to designate a position in the software…Continue
A 190 size FPV racer kit review from the GEP brand (so called ZX5 model). What's different about the previous FPV racers build I did before is a X frame while my former builds were always made with a classical H frame.
X frames have an advantage over H frames in that they are more symetrical (useful in FPV racing) and they twist…Continue
Please take a look at our newest Pixhawk based mapping setup with Easy Drone XL Pro and Sony QX1 and an additional FPV camera for live video feedback.
It takes advantage of a fairly large format imager on this cool Sony camera and gives you the ability to use high quality prime lenses. This rig will stay in the air for…Continue

What is GlobalARC?
GlobalARC is a cloud based platform that…

On the last weekend, I attended a drone meeting. I brought my IRIS which was given from my friend. It flew well and I was very satisfied with my first flight. In the meeting, other people brought their brand…Continue

Thursday March 10th 2016, sad, stressful, and rainy day in New England. I ran the misfortune of having MassGov deny my appeal for my only speeding ticket, and my only infraction with the law to date. Meaning now I owe them some money,…
