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:

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

I haven't posted a video for several months. This is mainly because I haven't been flying. I've been driving. Which I made a video about that you can see below. I recently was blessed with the oportunity to start a tattoo shop locally. It's a small one man custom shop and the best part is the location. It's smack dab in the middle of historic downtown Port…Continue
I just discovered a new FPV Simulator and it's free.
It's created and proposed by the blog FPV PASSION.
In my opinion, it is a cool simulator for everybody who wants to discover FPV !
Also very nice for flight preparation and line of sight checks!!
The development is based on the Google Earth Plugin so you can fly over 3D…Continue

I made a new FPV Showreel:
All shots are from multiwii/APM controlled Hexa/Quad and a Skywalker, shot on a GoPro Hero2.
Comments are welcome!

The recent Colorado floods are giving us a great look at how useful UAVs will be in disaster recovery and photography in the future.
While FEMA may have grounded Falcon UAV's aerial survey mission of the flooding around Boulder and…Continue
Ok, so in my previous blog post: http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/ghetto-fpv-quadcopter-1 I wrote a fairly comprehensive instruction on how to build a ghetto fpv quadcopter for around £115. It works well. However, just this week…Continue
Last Saturday I was finally able to do a flight I've been wanting to do pretty much since starting FPV. I took my Deep Reaper flying wing up to the top of Loveland Pass, Colorado for some awesome proximity action along the ridge line above the Arapahoe Basin ski area. Even though the lighting wasn't the best because of the dark clouds and my Deep Reaper isn't…Continue
