For the past few months we were looking for a more convenient way to launch our PD-1 fixed-wing UAV (MTOW is 40 kg). Since runway takeoff and landing requires pretty serious and long training for the operator and any pneumatic launchers that will work with our UAV are expensive (from $30000 USD (actually we couldn't…Continue
Hey i'm back, some good news! After many years of community development, searching and building most efficient UAV for eco mission with less money to spent finally months of testing and much witnessed by our FPV and UAV community a new era of super portable size autonomous drone was born. Its last flight was…Continue
Over the last six or so months I have been seeing a lot of articles floating around, calming DARPA and the Pentagon are seeking out cheap and simple ideas for controlling UAS swarms. But I have seen few attempt to address their “cry’s” for help. Maybe those folks where smart, kept it to themselves. But…Continue

Wanted to share with you guys a video of our 3.2 meters wingspan PD-1 airframe test. We did it quite some time ago, but I thought that it still may be interested. We do all kind of tests to our products and this is one of the final ones. Performed by professionals - don't try this at home! :D

Our group of UAV professional and enthusiasts kickstarted the first attempt for a high-altitude UAV flight in Indonesia. The program which was initiated by AeroTerrascan, an Indonesian UAV designer and manufacturing company, has since grown into a very resourceful…Continue
Just wanted to drop a quick note about our PD-1 UAS and of course to hear your opinion about it. As some of you may already know we are a Ukrainian-based company that develop and produce our own UAV systems and payload. We've been working for a while to develop and start a mass…Continue
Hi there friendly people of DIY Drones
I've been using and building drones for a few years now, and general shortcomings, I find are: noise, flight time, payload capacity, waterproof space for sensor and computing additions. These shortcomings of course all have good reasons to be there.
Some of the things I've done in the past are: made a really big rig (2m span) that's capable of…
Fly4.Me, a UAV service company challenges UAV pilots demonstrate their skill. The company is launching a video contest next week that will give pilots the chance to show the world what they’ve got.
Never did I set out to make a documentary of my experience with drones. With all the bad press recently I felt maybe my short film may show so people of the public that film makers use drones and we all dont have to fly around airports and aircraft.
What originally started as a hobby project can now be downloaded for iOS and Android: Our App DroneVR turns an iOS or Android phone into a virtual reality headset for flying drones in FPV cockpit perspective.
Currently the app works with DJI drones such as the Phantom 2 Vision+, the Phantom 3…
Local Motors had one of their most successful co-creation challenges in the past 40 days with the launch of ACDC (Airbus Cargo Drone Challenge). The challenge started with mostly…Continue
Many exciting developments are underway in regards to drones and drone insurance. At the forefront of these innovative offerings stands Skyvuze Technologies. UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) are not the only thing that our agency has launched recently. We are constantly working around the clock to provide the most efficient offerings in the entire drone…Continue
Previously, it was hardly possible to automatically align thermal images into a mosaic. Low contrast values of some frames caused the errors of automatic images alignment within the mosaic. Now, a new technology uses both thermal and visible spectrum camera images for alignment is…Continue

It's been a while since I published the last update about HYBRiX. We are very excited about how the development is evolving and more than happy with customers response.
For the past few weeks we have been working on finishing our MVP. it has a new look, new frame, more fuel tank capacity, quick…Continue
I made this video to show how to design and analyze a small flying UAV using my 3DFoil software.
I wrote this software several years ago using a vortex lattice approach. The vortex lattice method in the code is based on vortex rings (as opposed to the horse shoe vortex approach). The vortex ring method allows for wing twist (geometric and…Continue
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…
