Video Series on how to fly rc helicopters / quad copters. The video above is one of the last videos in the series. Maybe a little basic for most here but good for beginners.

Missing battery and camera box have a design which should weigh 140 grams empty.
The assembly shown below weighs 684 Grams no motor or electronics.
Electronics shown weigh 110 grams ESC Arduino board, Xbee, antenna & Gyro…Continue
Revised Yellow FPV Plane with gyro stability system added, Worked best with analogue inputs from Murata piezo gyro sensors of a dead KK board filtered taking a 10 point average. Yaw compensation is currently not used as there is no rudder presently.
Gyro stability code in action…Continue

There are a lot of new properties. You can search servos: by type (digital/analog), or you can choose torque and speed (4.8V, 6V, etc), or gears (metal, plastic):
Right now my database (rcdetails.info) contains:
>800 brushless motors,
>300 gas and glow…Continue
Once, I was giving a presentation on the history of drone technology and I showed a group of high school teachers the APM 2.0, and a teacher asked me "how big of a drone could you make with that?" I didn't know how to respond at first, because really there are practical limits on the size of a drone one builds in one's…Continue
I can't resist on posting it here.
Meet the true story of Don Juan FPV.
Full original scenes:
Today I went to a mega store and I found this "broken" car for just 9.99 pounds, so I decided to buy it and replace the crappy car that I mounted all the stuffs.
The next week I will buy 1 ultrasound sensor, extension IO and a compass, them should help the car to drive in a specific direction ( i.e. to the north ) and I am going to avoid the…Continue
this is my first post on this blog and I'd like to give some information about my new personal project. How you read on the title, the project is a RC CAR with Arduino nano that is controlled by TB6612FNG.
The final project will be a RC CAR controlled by Arduino nano and a few sensors, the big goal is to create a car that I…Continue

Ok , this is what i've been up to for the past 6 months besides ignoring my family working and getting little sleep . took me about 300 hrs of CFD time on my cluster alone plus a whole lot of cad work .the flight surfaces are well trimmed through the earlier iterations of the…Continue
Here a video a the latest firmware of the ThermoPilot v5.2 (2012 version) which uses a new algorithm (MLA) tested in HIL mode on Xplane v9.70 during a full autonomous slope soaring flight in high mountains. The ThermoPilot is a full enhancement of the ArduPlane v2.28 which adds the Thermal Hunting capabilitie and some…Continue
Here a video of the test of a Nimbus 4 meters wingspan electro-glider piloted by the firmware ArduPlane 2.28xp1 (updated version with a JLN mod). Test done in HIL mode with the AeroSIM-RC v3.83 simulator connected through the AP Mission planner v1.1.30 on an ArduPilot Mega board v1.
Here's a video I made for our rc club's website. Almost all aireal video is shot with my ArduCopter hexacopter and a cheap 50 euro Kodak ZX-1 cam. Firmware versions flown are 2.0.46 to 49.
For shooting the planes in flight I used a 7" carDVD LCD monitor bolted to my transmitter.
The intention was to show the website visitors what can be…Continue
Hey guys! A friend and I developed a speedometer app for iOS and Android. It is a simple to use app that allows your mobile device to "listen" for RC aircraft passes and announce the pass speed. Furthermore, the app also can log and export all of your pass data via email so that you can review it later. This works great if you want to analyze how…Continue

Ok, I didnt build it all myself, credit goes out to my mate Kim who cut holes and spent a fair bit of time with me on the build :)
So anyway, I wanted a UAV that did something... useful...
Live video is a pain, really easy to do if you dont go the legal route, but when it comes down to it, 10mw is just no fun in the city.
The next best…Continue
