Compact quadcopter with foldable frame and gimbal

Hello everyone. Long story short we are a small group of enthusiasts, who started to develop drones, payloads and accessories. Why we decided to do so? Because everything that were our there on the market was either too expensive or couldn’t satisfy our needs. We started with simple hobby equipment…

To Tricopter or to Quadcopter ..... That is the Question



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…

Nocturnal Flying Robots Emerge



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…

testflight xj470

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.

DJI Phantom 3 Released!

dji-phantom-3-banner1.jpg

I am surprised no-one else has beat me to this,but the DJI phantom 3 has been released and is not as expensive as you might think when considering that is packs the same tech as the DJI inspire 1 (such as lightbridge and the indoor vision sensors)

Today DJI has announced the new Phantom 3 quadcopter which is released in two flavors, the Phantom 3 Advanced,…

Fox Business Network's drone coverage

I work in TV news.  We've been doing a lot of coverage on the new FAA rules, particularly how the "line of sight" rule could impact businesses like Amazon.  Had a chance to appear on Varney & Co... the world's best business news show hosted by the brilliant Stuart Varney.  While Stuart knows quite a bit about finance and politics, tech is not his strong suit.  So I decided to put myself, and my drones on the show today to explain how flying outside of line of sight…

3D Printed LOKI quad, the WCUAVC and Aerial Vista Challenge Team

2014 was an exciting year for the Aerial Vista Challenge with lots of ups and downs but some amazing progress in unmanned capabilities and unmanned systems integration.  First, we are disappointed to have not had any news on a date for the Wildlife Conservation UAV Challenge that was supposed to happen in November of last year.  We have had no news in the last month and there is nothing scheduled on their website for 2015.  We have been holding back on decimating…

Is it a hobby or not?

I have been posting here for a couple years. Back when it consisted of a lot less drone and a lot more DIY. So please refrain from making silly comments like,"Do you know the name of the site you just posted on?"

Now that that's taken care of. You may have noticed the Commander in Chief told the FAA yesterday to do their job. That made me  think. Not that I don't have this thought at least once a week. What happens if we lose our hobby what will I do?

I've…

FPV testflight 3D printed crossfire

I upgraded my 3D printed crossfire with a Boscam transmitter TS351 and a all-in-one monitor RX-LCD5802. The FPV camera is a GoPro Hero 3. Simultaneously a Sparkfun GPS LS23060 was added. This implied adding code for reading, parsing and processing nmea data. I have chosen a complementary filter approach for fusion of accelerometer data and GPS data. I managed to…
