Hi there, I updated the blog I wrote last week which showed how to make a cheap ($50) wireless fpv monitor. This week, I updated to show how to add droidplanner to this setup, and for me it cost zero extra cost. Should cost you about a dollar to make if you're inventive. (Total cost…Continue
Hello, I decided to make a guide for people who wish to make a neat budget wireless fpv monitor. I figure that it costs less than half the amount to make your own than to buy an off the shelf monitor. And besides, it is fun to hack and be creative. You also learn some valuable skills.
Its been a while since I posted part 1 on this project. Since then I have been working on the HUD as well as building myself a test copter. Oh, and I've also finally got my 3dr pixhawk,
There is nothing much to show today except…Continue
Always wanted to try some flying from a moving car, but never thought of driving a car with fpv goggles on, and watching the car form the air. :)
Started a little pet project as I further develop a flight system that we can use on all of my crafts. This was going to include a uniform setup for several pieces that made the system work for me. I wanted to include a head tracker,as I started getting into this I remembered a episode that I liked very much on Top Gear, yes I am a gear-head also. So as I thought more about it,a nd as I get this setup consistent across the fleet this would be a good time to question how to…Continue
Excuse me if I'm missing a beat, but It could be a cool hack to combine the google cardboard VR kit:
with a skyped-to-your-smartphone 3D fpv video.…Continue
Hello! Today I want to tell You about the company's product FPV3DCam (fpv3dcam.com), a little and beautiful, you can say first of its kind - 3D video camera for fpv.
And thus, meet - …
I think a nice goggle set for beginners, the Quanum DIY FPV goggle set with monitor. Not with dual glasses, but a single display that shows the live feed from your video/transmitter set (not included). The resolution is 480p (640x480 pixels) and you can use it with one of the 3 lenses it comes it, whichever fits you best. The goggles can be switched between 16:9 or 4:3 aspect…Continue
I decided to build a new DIY drone, after my previous $10 balsa quad was flying (still fly) successfuly for me. And is still doing her job for aerial panoramas as you…Continue
Hello, a few weeks ago another DIYD member posted about my 3D printable micro h-quad frame design. I posted the files to thingiverse.com about 2 months ago. In that time it has got a lot of attention and has become a featured…Continue
Been some time since I've posted anything, since I've been working on this really big dream project of mine, a quadcopter which can fly for around 60 mins , provide a HD video downlink and have a really powerful flight controller.
I had to consider many things to acheive my goal, especially :
Guess how they got these shots!!
Cormorant class wing
50inch span 10.5ich chord at root
Payload bay 10x5x1 inch
battery bay 2x5x1 inch
Payload capacity (yet to be tested)
RC Skill Level intermediate
this is a relatively large plane . intended for FPV and other UAV function.
slightly slower than PX33
being a slow plane , don't expect it to take on winds of 20mph its just dangerous
its intended for First timers in…Continue
Now suppose that your phone wants to connect with this pCell network. It would simply send out an access request as…
Hi, I *finally* got round to recording video on my homemade fpv system. The quad is a WLToys V929:
New kid on the blog - the Ranger Ex UAS platform.
So much has happened since the good "old"…Continue
A new year and the start of new state legislative sessions brings a new crop of absurdly broad and unconstitutional proposals to ban FPV / personal…Continue
This little gem is great for unexperienced fixed-wing pilots and people who fly fpv. The T1000FC auto pilot system with GPS is an in-line flight stabilizing system that offers auto level, tilt angle limits and return to home functionality for conventional aircraft (fixed wing, delta, etc... excluding multicopters and heli's).
Let me just state that I respect Daren his work and contribution to hack and IT community and that this comment isn't directed in any way against him or his work.
Just a month ago while watching one of the Daren's videos I noticed DJI Phantom sitting on his desk and I couldn't…Continue
