The Russian approach to aircraft design has always been famous for robustness and extreme simplicity, and this now extends to multicopters! Here's their latest, with these features: moving part count, zero;…Continue
We take a look at installation and some basic use of the 3DR Data Radios, many of the guys here know how this all works, but many others have no idea, so here's a very simple look at installation and…Continue
Apologies for the video in portrait, hope it is still visible.
True to the DIY element of this community, I've devised a small, cheap and simple way to attach items of any kind to my Quadcopter and via a servo to release it.
It's quite simple yet effective, using one servo and some pieces of metal and a screw to mount it…
Myself and three other Mechanical Engineering students are in our last year of college and we wanted to go out with a bang.... So we though, what would be fun to build as a senior project?
Well, we decided unanimously on building a heavy lift gas powered quadcopter. It will have a payload of 50lbs, variable pitch to allow quick maneuvers and two 12.5hp two-stroke hobby motors running parallel. Each rotor head will have four 435mm rotor blades making this UAV…Continue
This is my project, I have been working on it for a couple of months. Is not ready yet and certainly it's not good looking, need more work but here is a video of some features.
Note this is a Steadycam design based on ECILOP ideas. But with a Multiwii board instead of gyros. Multiwii is fixed to the steadycam…Continue
We decided that it was time to test out the stability of the DJI Wookong M electronics on the CineStar 8 from FreeFly Systems.
So we flew a small girl around the park without making any gain adjustments in the DJI assistant.
This is a pretty large quadcopter. I wonder what flight controller they are using. Would it be great if we can get Arductoper branding on this? Definitely need custom code for the heavy lifting.
