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

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,…

The process of building a FPV racing drone it’s very fun and exciting, but without the…Continue
A "wearable" UAV/FPV GCS with a twist
Here's an update to our handheld (or rather body worn) modular commercial/civilian UAV GCS, an all-in-one FPV system with a fully functional integrated PC telemetry head. This is something that we've had in the works for some time now,…Continue
Rightly or wrongly, the FPV community has long been seen as the misfits of the RC aircraft world; and while FPV is steadily going mainstream, at NAFPV 2015 there was still a palpable sense of "this is not your grandfather's RC event."
As FPV racers in multicopter, spec wing, and fixed wing forms…Continue
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…Continue
Remember the first version of the Quanum Goggles (see blog post here)? they were quit popular and now they are even better, according to HobbyKing.
This new version features a 5” TFT monitor with 3X-magnifying lens and…Continue
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…

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…Continue
