ARIA and ReAllocate.org are seeking an UAV expert interested in the development of an UAS (an Unmanned Aerial System = UAV + Base station) for a project at the Burning Man festival. For this project, we will be delivering a system that is capable of tracking a person (via GPS enables tracker) and…Continue

Modern fault-tolerance design for aircraft does little to help when big parts start falling off. This study proposes a design approach / philosophy for keeping things aloft during broader system failure.

We are a small team committed to launch soon new economical and innovative solutions on the market of Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV/UAS).
We would ask your cooperation on this project responding to this short survey and sharing the link with people who might be interested.
We have been selling our AeroMapper UAV as a kit so far, and we are glad to announce our new Ready To Fly version is available now. Basically this is our second option which includes installed servos, motor and ESC, batteries, RC transmitter, and even battery charger.
We have our first batch…Continue
I put together an overview of what we found when looking into the legalities of UAV use in Canada. Our hope is that as a community we can have a rough outline for each of the countries that the members are from.
Notes: I'm not a professional I've just collated what I found. Please let me know of any mistakes or changes.
Q: Are UAVs legal in the Canada?
A: Unmanned Aerial vehicles are permitted to fly in…
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?
Hello to ALL, the new…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
So after reading through the comments on this post, it got me thinking about the possibility of using the MinimOSD, or soon to be released jDrones MiniOSD, on the ground to have one less item up in the air. The appeal of keeping the aircraft…Continue
A University of Colorado Asst. Professor is transitioning his GoJett Supersonic UAV project into a business.
"The UAV is intended to shape the next generation of flight experimentation… Its…Continue
Here some videos samples of 8 full AUTO-LANDING tests flights that I have done with the firwmare ArduCopter v2.4xp1 (JLN mod). I have updated the official ArduCopter v2.4 firmware with a special Auto-Landing mod that I have developped and tested successfully in the previous…Continue
I finally translated all the website of my home-made UAV in english.Continue
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…Continue
