Aleksey Zaytsevsky is at it again, another breakthrough in the field of camera stabilization technologies.
Both Mission Planner and DroidPlanner have recently added features for simplifying aerial survey. These tools help take the guesswork out of mission planning with cameras onboard, taking pictures to be stitched into a mosaic.…Continue

I know there are already lots written about remote triggering of cameras, including one on 3DR's webpage. I just want to share…Continue
More information: 10 x zoom video camera for UAV/UAS.
10 X Zoom Video Camera Main Features:
After a year of having purchased the camera FH 10 with 10x zoom, the first experiences were poor due to the lack of a system of stabilization.
then decided dusting the camera again and stabilize with AMP 2.5. using the PAN and TIL my RVJET, to install it sideways. in my skywalker 1900. the camera has stabilization in the ROLL axis,…Continue
Looks like a very interesting technology to use on a uav.
We've invented the world's first intelligent throwable camera, a ball capable of stabilized, full spherical 360° photography and video capture. Today, as this fledgling space begins to take flight, we're engineering state-of-the-art…
A dozen police officers apprehended a man who flew a radio-controlled mini helicopter over the Pretoria hospital, where former president Nelson Mandela was being treated on Friday.
The multi-copter had a rotating camera and was in the sky for a few minutes. A multi-copter looks like a spider.…Continue
Fresh from Hobbyking is this video switch which allows you to switch a maximum of 3 camera's on your aircraft (or boat, car for that matter) by the flick of a switch. This switch features one receiver input, 3 camera inputs and one video output
With dimensions of only 30x18x6mm and just 4 grams this is a small and light device.…Continue

Through the eyes of a CCTV security system-
Hey DIYDrones community,
This year at NAB 2013 Las Vegas, the RED booth had an incredible display with a beautifully engineered 12-Rotor. It may be the first duodeca-copter of its kind. Its payload was the RED Epic with a custom carbon fiber gimbal and skids.
You can learn more from their website: …Continue
Another quad that i found on hobbyking. It caught my eye as it has a monitor inbuilt to the controller. I've seen a few concept controllers maybe this could work?
A nice shortcut to newcomers with a 3-axis gyro stabilization system.
3.5" LCD screen which matches some phones.Range is limited but i suppose some hacking might sort…Continue
I have been interested in the world of UAVs and quadcopters for some time now, but have never moved much beyond my few single rotor RC helicopters. Back in December, I purchased my first quad, a HeliMax 1SQ to try my hand at flying something other than single rotor helicopters. It is a fun little quad, but very limiting in ability to carry anything. As I am wanting…Continue
Canon just annonced a new high sensivity camera with low noise. A new age for FPV night age is coming ?
Unfortunately I'm unable to embed video, so you have to click on the image to go to the Canon website.
The newly developed CMOS sensor features pixels measuring 19 microns square in size, which is more than 7.5-times the surface area of the pixels on the…
Here's a simple servo-controlled very light GoPro mount for any UAV. I have machine tools to make this, but you might be able to do it with simple home tools. The real trick is a direct connection between the servo and the camera rotator, and to use a control link ball (left side in photo) so you don't need to hit…Continue
I have been wondering about how to mount my GoPro camera to the 3DR Camera Tilt Gimbal and found a solution so simple yet so ingenious (if I may say so myself) that I thought it would be worth sharing.
This is my second GoPro camera. The first one broke as it fell off the Gimbal during rough…Continue
In this video the application of a Visual-Inertial (Camera & IMU) localization algorithm on a Parrot AR.DRONE quadrotor, for enabling real-time GPS-denied autonomous navigation, is presented.
A sensor package for data logging, consisting of a Beaglebone computer, an…Continue
What would you like to see in a thermal pan tilt platform to make it effective for UAV usage?
I am with a company called SPI Corp and we manufacture a low cost multi sensor pan tilt platform called the M1-D. The M1-D initially was developed for use on ground vehicles but due to its light weight, small size and low cost it has become very popular with folks in the aerial imaging world…Continue
