A very quick look at the follow me mode in the SteadiDrone AGC (Android Ground Control) App and the SteadiDrone QU4D. Using the GPS system the drone is set to 'follow me' mode and the follows…
After my quad flew itself into the side of my workshop and destroying itself, I decided to go with a hex after having bearing…Continue
I may have found my next toy. About a year ago, elsewhere on the internet, I predicted RTF sub-$200 FPV quads would soon hit the market, and the hobby would really take off, no pun intended. Recently, I wrote about the…Continue
Hi there welcome back,
Here is a little picture of the first version of my quad hybrid projet
It's a version to allow "Maxime carrier" to crash it 1 or 2 time before it's broke XD.
The design of the 2 rotating propeler is pending until i got the missing part. beteween 2…Continue
Here is an interesting quad frame that Hobbyking is selling. I can see this really working.
Nice enclosures for the motors…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
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 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
Here is the destruction of the prototype of my A/V quad. The video is shaky because my carbon gimbal was too light to properly isolate the vibrations, and because the props where not properly balanced.
Its a pity the damn thing had to go like this; I was about to go out and film a race, which is the primary reason for the improvement of the vibration dampening.…Continue
3D Robotics had a great weekend at the First Annual MultiRotor Challenge. We were there both Saturday and Sunday and competed in most of the events, including a fully autonomous demo mission with a Stock 3DR Hexacopter. In the Auto-Land Competition, APM powered Multi's got 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place! We also won…Continue
Yes, finaly there is some progress on my quadcopter project.
First of all I spended to much time playing with my little Mini-H-Quad project. If you wan't to see some FPV recordings from a the Fatshark predator v2 set then watch my blog on http://wipo-minihcopter.blogspot.be/

A video of a rescue system for quad from Kopterworx
There is 4 size of parachute 2.5m2 to 15m2 http://www.kopterworx.com/Rescue/View-all-products
I meant to make this a blog post rather than put it on the forum. I thought my most recent crash would interest some of you as after the crash the GoPro recorded some kangaroos crashing in to each other as well.
Happy New Year to you all!
My first blog. I have been very careful with learning how to fly. So it is not very interesting.
After numerous bench tests, re calibrations, and more bench tests I was finally brave enough to take my 3DR quad out for it's first flight -albeit tethered. I did some initial outdoor ground testing in which I brought the throttle up to the point of takeoff but noticed that the quad was showing a tendency of tilting forward and right so I killed the throttle, ran…Continue

I know that the it looks like I have a a prop balance issue but it is actually a bent prop causing the vibration and (jello effect) I have new props on order.
Other then that I have the Quad working well in Alt Hold and stable so far. working on the reset still.

Introducing the USAV.

On the outer skin it's a standard 450…Continue
