Popular Mechanics just did a piece on UAVs that is worth a read.. there is reference to KSU's work on the farm as well.
Ah, the college years, a magical time in a young adult's life. Time to cast off secondhand opinions, explore sociology and philosophy, engage in rambunctious…

In this post I’ll describe how to make your own cable to trigger the Samsung mirrorless cameras NX20, NX210 and NX1000. We’ll be using an ArduPilot Mega 2.5 to do the triggering but you can use any Arduino or even a soldered push button.
What you’ll need:
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.
Take a look and listen to the program that aired nationally…Continue
I want to let the APM trigger my camera and the camera I had did not have a port for a remote shutter trigger so I had to remove the button on the camera and solder the 4 points and connected them to a relay switch.
Missing battery and camera box have a design which should weigh 140 grams empty.
The assembly shown below weighs 684 Grams no motor or electronics.
Electronics shown weigh 110 grams ESC Arduino board, Xbee, antenna & Gyro…Continue
Revised Yellow FPV Plane with gyro stability system added, Worked best with analogue inputs from Murata piezo gyro sensors of a dead KK board filtered taking a 10 point average. Yaw compensation is currently not used as there is no rudder presently.
Gyro stability code in action…Continue

pyXY - Synapse SM700 Dev Board May Be better than Xbee and seems cost effective
8 X 12 bit analogue inputs could do a RC controller without Arduino's
This Data Sheet details the SM700PC1 module, which…
While adding the AMP to the Shrike, we wanted to understand Flying Wings a little better and explore expos. We incrementally increased expose to 0%, 30%, and 60%, then flew the Raptor with the existing vertical stabilizer at 100%, 50%, and 0%. We were surprised to find that it flew just fine with 0% stabilizer! This test was in low wind, however, so it will…Continue
Continuing from my last post and hunting down the ever ending dream for "more" Skiptrovamon took a new form. This time our team goals was to keep the good things from our first airframe and..:
-Step on Known PIDs
-Make more room for cameras…Continue
