In these days, while waiting for the waypoint navigation hardware, I'm working on the new frame for my cargo drone, and on the new box, I'm also planning for 4KG PAYLOAD test, after the first of 2kg, I've now got 580kv motors so I have better a thrust, if you want to stay informed on this project please subscribe to the newsletter: http://eepurl.com/cUJnJr or take a look at my site: …Continue
Hi guys, in these days I made a successful payload test of my cargo drone (it's just a few seconds but it demonstrates that we can do it). Another news is that I'm working on the cargo box so I changed it with a more resistant one and now I'm working on the navigation system (based on waypoints).

Hi this is my little cargo drone, it can lift about 2000g and the maximum flight time is about 50 minutes, I also have a site so if you want just click the link, take a look and subscribe to the newsletter https://www.sandwichdrones.it/ …Continue
Before choosing the best esc for quadcopter or FPV, you should know some ESC knowledges (Type, Firmware and Key parameters) as below.
A Brushed Motor has a rotating set of wound wire coils which acts as an electromagnet with two poles.
A Brushless Motor uses a permanent…Continue
Flight controllers tend to be aimed at different types of flying style: Cinema Flying, Sport Flying and Autonomous Flying. At the same time, there is a massive number of flight controller brands in the market, so it's hard to know which is best. Today I will give some perspective on that.

In this project, I will go through the process of designing and making a flight controller board from scratch for a micro-quadcopter. This board will be based on the ATMega328 microcontroller and will be used to control four coreless DC motors. The whole PCB making process from…Continue

Hello, I would like to show you my recent project with official name:
Quadcopters are flying drones with a highly constrained payload capacity, limited computation power as well as communication capabilities. Such quadcopters can be equipped with a low…Continue

Here's a video from one of our recent tests of our GTQ-Cormorant: a submarine and quadrotor hybrid.
We use an air pump/solenoid system to move air between the clear, water-tight pressure hull and an external air bladder for depth…Continue
Maybe you are one of those who googled for the difference between Quadcopter & Tricopter. For sure you found many feedback and comparisons.
Mainly the difference will be regarding power consuming, or mechanical complexity. Some prefer Quadcopters for its simplicity to build and fix, others prefer TRICopter for its ability to YAW more…Continue
The passing of the autumnal equinox provides more opportunity to test luminary robots. Over the last few years, at about this time, I find myself deep in lighting experiments for upcoming projects. It's important to test any candidate lighting systems to understand how they might…Continue

For bench marking my own developed flight controller, I built a Quanum XJ470 drone with a DroPix (Arducopter/PixHawk) flight controller. Some additional features: esc AFRO 30A; motors: SunnySky 980 KV; props 10 x 4.5. My first testflight shows that the drone with the DroPix flies great.
