Still testing out the Xaircraft X650 V-8

It's thunderstorming here in Wisconsin today so I thought I share my latest video shot from my Xaircraft X650 V-8 using a GoPro camera on a fixed mount.  Very stable platform even when NOT using the $300.00 2 or 3 axis camera mount.  My mount cost less than $2.00 to make using a couple pieces of colorplast and a flat GoPro mount.  What do you think?

My First UAV project


My name's Gabriel.

Basically I am a software developer. My previous work was in the avionics field as a s/w developer. But that was several years ago. Since then I did web dev (Django) and a little bit of native iOS development.

For several years I've been looking on many DIY and commercial UAV projects. And I find the whole thing very interesting and fascinating. 

So I finally started my own project.

It will be a DIY quadcopter. I think that…

Lockheed Martin Offering a Commerical UAV in 2012

Ok, so the heading is a little misleading.  By UAV, Lockheed probably means Umanned Aquatic Vehicle.  They're planning to offer this UAV for sale in late 2012.  But, seriously, maybe we all need to get out of the air and into the water.  Is there such a thing as FSA (Federal Submarine Authority) or does Transport Canada have regulations for submarine…

How to NOT get grounded by FAA...

Hello all!

Just a suggestion for those who got affected by the FAA enforcement policies against UAVs used for aerial Photography in LA area, and even if you are not affected by this you can use our telescopic masts that go up to 60 ft high.


No crashes, no more "mayday mayday, my batteries are dying", no police asking questions, no repairs and no parts to be ordered for replacement......

Most of my customers and even myself are…
