A few months ago I recieved an email from Lorenz, main developer of the Pixhawk research project and the PX4 autopilot. He urged me to create a small flying wing platform. Around 35 inch wing span and around 500 grams. capable of carrying a small camera like a gopro or canon s100.camera and an…Continue

Here's a fresh change, an example of UAV's used for good!
cividrones has been in the air with a quadcopter within the area of Lithgow, New South Wales (Australia) during our current fire season highlighting the extensive damage done to property as well as ongoing preventative measures in use by 'firies' to control these fires. The…Continue
I have been quite successful to perform general aerial mapping, producing othomosaic and digital surface model for our local plantation company. Our Skywalker base UAV power by APM is a very reliable tools for acquire aerial images. Currently for a typical…Continue

When I gain 14 more youtube subscribers youtube will allow me to use their Live Feed Feature. When that happens i'm going to start posting 4-6 live stream youtube sessions a week. The subjects of the Live Casts will include tutorials on how to use free CAD software to make blueprints/schematics for your drone projects. The Live Sessions are going to be predetermined for the…Continue
The recent Colorado floods are giving us a great look at how useful UAVs will be in disaster recovery and photography in the future.
While FEMA may have grounded Falcon UAV's aerial survey mission of the flooding around Boulder and…Continue
We did a recent flight minutes after an attempted break in to scan the area for criminals possibly hiding behind walls etc. We took off from a nearby field and allways stay directly over the flield (just in case).
The APM on AC 3.0.1 has been doing a great job in keeping the Tarot T810 hexa in the…Continue

Hey everyone, so I don't have the APM tuned very well but at least its hitting waypoints and holding altitude and airspeed. I decided to get it flying and see just how long it would go. Here it the result:

More information: 10 x zoom video camera for UAV/UAS.
10 X Zoom Video Camera Main Features:
The new "smaller" Mugin 2600
After a year of having purchased the camera FH 10 with 10x zoom, the first experiences were poor due to the lack of a system of stabilization.
then decided dusting the camera again and stabilize with AMP 2.5. using the PAN and TIL my RVJET, to install it sideways. in my skywalker 1900. the camera has stabilization in the ROLL axis,…Continue
Hey everyone, Here is something cool that I have been working on that I think you may enjoy.
So, I had been pondering how to make an inexpensive variable prop. I was thinking about using a heli head from a hk450 or perhaps a tail rotor. I eventually saw a post here, on diydrones, where a guy was using a tail rotor from a HK500 (can't find post). I got inspired and found a HK600 tail rotor has the…
I've been working for the last few weeks on developing a parachute recovery system for E382s to reduce the need for manual flying. I know from my own experience that any time a human is at the controls, the risk of crashing is significantly higher. Parachutes have been made for small aircraft before…Continue
