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 want…

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

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…Continue

For all of you who see this project for the first time, check out earlier post to get some info ( …Continue
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…Continue
This is my fourth article about Andruav. In the past few articles I talked about:
1- What is Andruav then I focused on the telemetry features in Andruav.
2- Andruav as a…Continue
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…Continue
Happy new year diydrones community, I wan't to give you a bit of real-life footage of OpenFPV.
The footage is recorded on the ground station via screen capture to give you a more realistic feeling.
I had not transmissions problems in 15 minutes flight time. Radius about 150 - 300 meters.
The footage is not modified…
We wanted to introduce you guys to something we have been working on over the past year.. Namely, the Brain FPV Flight Controller:
The Brain is a next-generation flight controller that is specifically designed for first person view (FPV) flying and includes a…Continue

I have worked hard in my sparse time to improve OpenFPV. I got a lot of mails from interested people around the world and can't wait to share the latest results with you. Your support is amazing, and my goal is to bring this project alive as soon as I can. Special thanks for all who donated a few bucks to the Project, every dollar helps me a lot.
A quick overview from the last…

This is the first post in what I hope to be a series of posts on exploring the possibilities in using the Oculus Rift alongside a UAV. The plan in the long run is to create a GCS for the Oculus Rift or other HMDs that gives you a feeling of actually sitting up in the air being able to look…Continue
It may not look like much, but she's got it where it count. After much flying , realize that the original frame which is EPS foam didn't stand up well to the abuse of hard landings and later scrapped. This time replace it with EPP foam to give it the added durability it needs,
