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
Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), often known as drone is a type of aircraft that flies without a human pilot abroad. These types of vehicles are controlled by onboard computers autonomously or with help of a human-operated remote control. Advancements in the commercial as well as military vehicle technologies have…Continue
We are up to 250+ firms on our directory. We are planning to do a check on hiring soon to see where the industry stands. If you have any comments send a note to email@example.com we look forward to hearing from you.
It would be great to get…Continue

A big enabler for UAVs going forward, especially with respect to commercialization, will be improving telemetry range. On that note, I've released my MAV Downlink Android application and associated tools today.
MAV Downlink opens up a new communication pathway for you to talk to your UAV while it…Continue

Earlier this week a pilot fromwas preparing to begin a spray run through a field. Barely visible ahead of him was a small stationary object. He decided it must be a kite since a bird would not remain motionless. As he neared the object, it rapidly shot straight up.…Continue
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
Luftfotos24 presents the first UAS product line "Beast series”. The system allows everyone to take aerial pictures, research, Orthophotos, aerial surveying and precision farming.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.
Brief explanation of this UAV with English…Continue
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.…
