Raw flight footage.
Just to document some early progress in the building of a multirotor Conservation Drone with thermal imaging for wildlife research (last picture shows the quad with a FLIR PS32 camera, yet to be mounted). Apologies for the shaky video taken with an iphone (had to hold on to transmitter with other hand).
A very quick look at the follow me mode in the SteadiDrone AGC (Android Ground Control) App and the SteadiDrone QU4D. Using the GPS system the drone is set to 'follow me' mode and the follows…

Can it fly?
Yes it can :)

Hey again guys, just a quick post here of some recent videos we've posted, firstly let me once again thank all the developers who make this code as…Continue
As my first blog post in diydrones I'd like to show, specially to other noobies what is the so much talked PID so much used in our Arducopters and Arduplanes.
This video has substitles also in english and russian but you have to select it to activate them.
It shows in a very dummy but effective way what PID is, and hope it makes things more clear for…Continue
The last post was almost laughable as ArduCutter barley got off the ground and certainly didn't do much in the way of entertaining. Well, it still isn't ready for Vegas however I've been feeling pretty good about the progress especially since the project was started with a strategy of hope. In the past week or so I have successfully put this quad through many of the basic flight modes and everyone walked away with no broken bones and no blood spilled. A…
Yes, finaly there is some progress on my quadcopter project.
First of all I spended to much time playing with my little Mini-H-Quad project. If you wan't to see some FPV recordings from a the Fatshark predator v2 set then watch my blog on http://wipo-minihcopter.blogspot.be/
"Researchers at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) have developed a new system which improves the ability of a GPS to determine a vehicle's position as compared to that of conventional GPS devices by up to 90 percent, and which can be installed in any vehicle at a very low cost.
The system, which…Continue
I'm starting to build my Arducopter and immediately after having gone through the tests I could do with Mission Planner and a USB only I started looking for a solution on how to avoid recharging LiPo batteries every 10 minutes of testing, a especially how to avoid spending money on replacing AA stilo batteries…Continue
The beauty of open source is that if you don't like something, you can change it. So here I am showing you my last changes to both: Mission Planner and ArduCopter (in the future it could be moved to library to be used by all Ardu* projects).
Before I start I would like to…Continue
The sensor is galvanically isolated from the…
This WallChart.pdf is a first draft of an idea to provide diagrams of the relationships between the different modules of any Arduino drone project that new users can stick on the wall.
The pdf shows a map of how…Continue

I've been working on a hexacopter project for the last few months and finally got it completed and flying. Specs for my hexa are listed below. It has been a fun project and I am impressed with the Ardupilot 2.0 Board & Arducopter Software thus far. Special thanks to all the people that have contributed to the arducopter wiki as the information and comments…Continue

some weeks ago while I was watching a Formula1 race I started to think in this idea, why not develop a Formula1 shape quadcopter? I was thinking about the best way to fit the shape of an F1 car…
It also have the DFX file available, but I the dimensions depend on size of your copter, so…Continue
I'm the secretary for our local St. Louis rocket club: St. Louis Rocketry Association and decided to bring out my Jdrones frame/APM 1 to the launch to do some 2.5.3 testing and at the same time shoot video of some rockets with a GoPro Hero 2. I'm using the Jdrones stabilized camera mount - although I'm still adjusting the camera mount gains and dealing with jello video. The GoPro video was also sent to the…Continue
