This educative video shows how a quadcopter is born, and of course its maiden flight.
I had to built a quad with some parts we order from hobbyking, so, I took my camera, put it in a tripod, read some…Continue

Hi there, I updated the blog I wrote last week which showed how to make a cheap ($50) wireless fpv monitor. This week, I updated to show how to add droidplanner to this setup, and for me it cost zero extra cost. Should cost you about a dollar to make if you're inventive. (Total cost…Continue
Vibration is the bane of multirotors, and needed something that I could produce very inexpensively in small quantities for quadcopter builds and other robotic applications. This is what I came up with that I could cut on demand on the waterjet.
I have used zip ties, nylon screws and traditional bolts with nylock nuts to secure them in a frame, and were very impressed with the operation, if…Continue
This question gets asked a lot on the forums and Facebook so I thought I'd make a video with some of the answers that I give to new pilots. Feel free to add your own advice too.
Hey all! Just a quick blog about the new SteadiDrone MAVRIK, featuring 3DR's Pixhawk, very unique airframe designs, full X8 support and all new rail supported front mounter gimbal for a wide range of larger camera.
It's been a while since our very first drones using the APM1s and we're super excited about…
This large video is about the project that Murray and me have being doing in the MAST Lab. It's about doing automatic position control and trajectory tracking of a micro unmanned aerial vehicle, being more specific is our 3D printed quadrotor platform,…Continue
It's ElecFreaks' latest project.
Our ultimate goal is to make ELF the pocket copters affordable, carry high…Continue
I finalized a new layout of my drone design. It now includes a top and bottom plate, a canopy to protect the autopilot and a platform for a GPS (if needed). It also includes legs to be attached to the current 3DR arms.
In detail, the bottom plate includes 3M hole pinouts for the old and new arducopter power…Continue

Finally got around to building my first quadcopter after talking about it for way to long. Great experience, but of course it did take a lot of online research to gather all the necessary bits of information. I decided to collect that information on my website in the hopes that other budding UAV enthusiast could…Continue

This last academic year, as a part of our Senior Design Project for an undergrad program in Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering at the University of Miami, my team (Mark Agate and Stephen Markus) and I developed a basic collision avoidance system using sonar sensors.
We first constructed a relatively…Continue
Recently, I took a picture of my entire senior class at Newman Smith High School in Carrollton Texas. I'd like to share the results with the rest of you all.
I made a how-to on Instructables.com on how I planned the whole thing and also, all the other pictures and video.
Here'st the link to the instructables: …Continue

First of all, I would like to thank everyone on this site that helped me within the past few weeks! Y'all's advice definitely helped me make some decisions in moving forward with these UAVs. With that being said, I wanted to give an update to anyone who is interested in what I finally…Continue
My girlfriend loves baking and chocolate and I love building and flying quadcopters. That probably makes us the perfect couple fulfilling all gender specific clichés ;-) Anyway, she came up with the idea to build a chocolate copter. I was skeptical at first. Chocolate is not as stable as aluminum or carbon - which are typically used for copter frames. Nor is it heat-resistant. As…Continue
We teamed up with Bercom makers of the HANDy Paint Products to create the world's first residential and commercial Drone Painting Company.
Check it out!
"Tongue in cheek" this was a lot of fun and very scary at times putting a 4' pole with a roller and trying to fly it around painting stuff. It was…Continue
