The UgCS team has accomplished what we believe is a first – integrating a Mode S/ADS-B out transponder with a small drone, enabling radar visibility throughout the drone’s flight. A BeagleBone Black computer with CAN bus shield was used to integrate a Sagetech XPS-TR, the world’s smallest transponder, with the…
In the continuing evolution of scalable, multi-UAV control surfaces, here's a few minutes demo of the Guidance Mode UI using the Flying Robot Commander in tandem with Paparazzi UAV. The same framework for building…Continue

MyROZ is a new UAV/ drone operations interactive application which builds unofficial operational airspace for its users and enables pilot interaction.
MyROZ originates from the aviation term “ROZ” which stands for Restricted Operating Zone. Its foundational purpose is to not…Continue
I want to share our last experience with HYBRiX, a lapse time of a 3hr and 10min endurance flight test. As far as I know it is the longest flight time for a hybrid fuel-electric drone, and I have to say it is not a lab test, but the same configuration we will start selling very soon. We are really excited about this! Please comments…Continue
UgCS As a Platform
Right from the beginning UgCS was designed not only as an out of the box ground station software for end users, but also as a platform for custom and integration projects.
By now a number of different custom projects have been…Continue
Paparazzi UAV, an open-source uav platform, is breathing new life, so to speak, into 20K RAM Naze32 and CC3D autopilots. That's great news for anyone that might already own these class of autopilots and would like to use Paparazzi UAV on…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
First I would like to Thank you to this wonderful community here, who have helped us learn latest and greatest about drones, agriculture in specific. Past several months team…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

This app contains over 46,000 airports around the world which can be displayed quickly and easily when flying RC models. When flying RC/UAV's commercially, these areas are considered "No Fly Zones" based on your geographic…Continue
A few weeks back I posted about flying multiple robots along with my Periscope channel where the videos age out on a daily basis. Some folks requested a more persistent video of these flights. Yesterday, I went out to the field and did a few flights. My friend Max was nice enough to film one…Continue

Hey fellow UAV enthusiasts & professionals !
Are you working with aerial photography, image mapping, agriculture analysis, 3D modelling or something where you need to trigger your camera from a UAV platform?
We are proud to present our first product from Seagull UAV !
I'm working on the BreezeUav project which is open-source autopilot for fixed-wing and multicopter. So far it's possible to fly by using the board we designed based on Atmega 2560 and we currently adapt the code to be executed on ARM Cortex soon.
Anyway today I wanted…
The Aeromapper family of UAVs consist of three different drones aimed for mapping and survey applications with…Continue
