I came across this interesting video:
As you can see in the video they have managed to control the coaxial design without using a swash plate and all the complicated mechanisms required for that. It looks like this is an excellent concept for very light weight systems. I do wonder how easy this can be scaled up into a device that can actually carry any…Continue
I'm happy to share with you today BreezeUAV.
BreezeUAV is an autopilot running on Arduino Mega 2560 which allow the user to do some automatic missions or to fly in "semi-automatic" mode with a Joystick. In fact, instead of controlling the surface controls of the airplane, the joystick define the euler angles desired. Then the autopilot, using PID controllers, stabilize the UAV.
I first decide to implement the whole system on a Yak…

We received one of a few Sky Observer samples ZETA Science had available for testing a couple of weeks ago for evaluation before they go into production, assembled it and took it for a test flight.
The RTF model is very near completion with all electronics and cabling cleanly and…Continue

The Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (SUAV) market forecast report offers a complete analysis of the market across the forecast period of six years from 2014 to 2020. It provides an analysis of the factors that drive the market, restrain the growth of the market, and the challenges faced by the industry.
The major factors driving the SUAV market…Continue
It's been already a while ago since we started selling one of our newest drones based on the Talon UAV airframe: the Aeromapper Talon.
In this occasion we wanted to use a large foam aircraft, something that was compact and yet large to offer 60 minutes endurance carrying a Sony Nex 5 with wide angle lens (as standard sensor, but more sensors are available). We…Continue
I have been working on and off towards a VTOL aircraft for a few years now. All of this work has been kept off of the record, but I had the very first successful VTOL Flight and transition with this aircraft yesterday and am very excited to share these results. This method of VTOL is not a new…Continue
Flying Wing for Search and Rescue
I've been working on designing a flying wing UAV since 2 months now. Human search and rescue using an autonomous drone is the prime objective of this project.
One of the major aim of our project is to show how a visual human detection system that uses images from a normal camera can be implemented in software. The system would fit into the larger context of disaster…Continue

As we are rapidly approaching the official release of the Albatross line of aircraft, we thought there would be no better way of saying thank you than by giving away a free airframe to someone in the community. As such we have decided a design contest is in order for the best paint scheme, with the winning…Continue

Some of our latest work in Spain, photogrammetry for surveying work in archeology, classical topography and microtopography for the study of erosion phenomena in soils, and studies with near-infrared camera on riparian forests. The flights were performed with UAV-Mentor3 (fixed wing) and multicóptero (rotary wing).…Continue
