This article is written for all levels of pilots to follow as a guideline in your flying progression. With the many choices that UAV pilots have today for vehicle configurations, flight management and equipment it is important to remember that your vehicle can be dangerous and expensive if not…Continue
The BeaglePilot project started three years ago, when Víctor Mayoral Vilches (DIY page), researcher at the Italian Institute of Technology and co-founder of…Continue
I will start out by saying that I am in no way associated with this product or its developers or retailers. I just ran across this while researching for another project. It looks very exciting and very affordable price for the claimed capabilities. Late last year while I was in researching for…Continue
I have successfully tested the Cheerson CX-20 Auto-Pathfinder (also called the Quanum NOVA). This quadcopter uses an APM v2.52 with the ArduCopter v3.1.2 already installed. It fly very well and all the Arducopter features are working very well....
Above, a video during the maiden flight of the CX-20 has been taken with a GoPro 3 "Black Edition" mounted on the anti-jello mounting…Continue

I have been upgrading vertical tail in order to increase control power factor and preparing some information for the slicer process and assembly.
Sorry for the delay.

I would like to show you the new Barcelona 100% 3D printed UAV.
"Zablidowsky was accused by the FAA of flying in restricted airspace without obtaining permission from controllers and operating the drone in a “careless or reckless manner.”
The airspace designation above that part of New York is the same as for flights using nearby airports, including LaGuardia…Continue
We have been working for some time on a way to estimate and display important flight parameters such as angle of attack, estimated airspeed (on UAVs that do not have Pitot tubes), side slip angle or flight path vector (FPV) using a simple, robust dynamical model of the UAV and a computational method that is both fast and has computational time guarantees.…

Hi all! Just wanted to share a project I have been involved with since last September. I was the TA for a class of students at Purdue University and we collaborated with students from Brigham Young University and Georgia Tech to create an almost entirely additive manufactured UAV for agricultural surveying. Boeing funded the program through their education wing and Stratasys was a huuuuuuuuuuuuuge help with printing our aircraft.
Wingspan is 89" from winglet to…Continue
I got a little excited and published the video a little early. This is the official video for the Aerial Vista Challenge Team. We are participating in the 2014 Wildlife Conservation UAV Challenge. This is the one that we have submitted for the competition. Thank you to our sponsors and to Inside Focus Media for creating this video. We look forward to more…Continue
Hello everyone from the Aerial Vista Challenge Team. We have been trucking along on out competition UAV. We are real happy with the progress and we are getting all knids of stuff in from sponsors. This week we received our Arsov AUAV3 and in a couple of weeks we should be getting our AUAV X-1 Autopilots in.…Continue
We were asked to do some field testing for the Investec Rhino Life Line with Dr Will Faulds. Thought I'd share some of the footage. Only in Africa! :)
Using APM2.6, Tarot T810, Alexmos BGC (soon to be upgrade to 3 axis) and the trusty GoPro.
Here is a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnAL1ygwNg8) of a new implementation of an AHRS algorithm, thanks to Seb Madgwick and Fabio Vareseno works.
