As you all know brushless gimbals are the future, and we've just tested our first small BG for our SteadiDrone QU4D, here are some quick clips, much more to come soon. You can check out…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
Chasing RIB boats with my FPV quadcopter.
I was sitting in the yellow boat. Pretty scary, flying over waves while holding the transmitter.

I've managed to get everything up and running again! This is my newish hexa from uDrones (I've decided to forgo a rant on that subject for now). After working around my PDB issue (still unsolved) and engaging in some…Continue
Ok it was a very long wait for those of us who bought the wifi back pack to see our GoPro video on our iphone (and other devices too)
But it's out today.
I've tested it and there is like a 3-4 seconds delay so no live streaming that could help us to do…Continue
If you have a GoPro HD HERO2 camera there's a free firmware update that doubles the video bit rate, has a neutral white balance, and disables internal noise reduction, contrast adjustments, and sharpening. This dramatically improves the quality of the video and opens new doors for…Continue
As some of you might remember, I hit a tree on my first flight and broke a wing.
Thanks to Gorilla Glue and some carbon fiber reinforcements the Bixler is up and running. I put 3 small carbon rods to reinforce the wing.
After some flights I decided it's time to attach a GoPro to it.
I have …Continue
After coming back from my honeymoon I finally found some time to get some real flights. 3 weeks ago I flew my copter for the first time but it was just a few minutes on a very low altitude in front of my block. Today I went to some open space. Unfortunately, the wind was very strong so learning changed into fighting with the wind. Still managed not to crash the…Continue

From the description:
This is my new pan-tilt-roll gimbal for my GoPro HD camera. It is supposed to go onto a remote controlled airplane for FPV and aerial video. The whole mechanical structure was printed (laser sintered) by Shapeways. …
Ive been doing some testing with the new GoPro2 HD video camera. I bought it out of necessity after loosing my GoPro HD in flight :( But, having the HD jump ship was a blessing in disguise, because the new GP2 boasts some impressive features.
While shooting in 1080P, you can choose 3 different field of view (fov) settings: Wide at 170, medium at 127, and narrow at 90. Heres a video I made testing the different fov settings on a Skywalker foam airplane.…Continue

I found this video over the weekend. Not sure if its been posted on here before but its worth the watch. Some pretty tight flying through jungles and bridges.

As you all know I've been bashing away to create code for cameras whether that be tracking a GPS point or stabilising the camera platform or just clicking the camera button. The code is currently adolescent in nature,…Continue
I tried flying with the GoPro mounted this time. I already had broken part of my landing gear last flight but managed to hold it in place with some duct tape ;) Everything went ok until I broke the landing gear again and had to remove the camera mount not to break it. I did a couple of flights without the camera and with the broken landing gear until I snapped 3 props…Continue
