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…

PaparazziUAV and Multiple MAVs in Flight

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…

Kalman filter parameter importance

Hi everyone,

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…

Experiments with an industrial USB webcam

Above is a fullsize image of a 5MP webcam. A webcam usually has a CMOS sensor and commercial ones support up to 720p resolution. 720p is a result of the usb bus bandwidth available to stream the images and since many computers still use USB 2.0, this is the maximum resolution for reasonable framerates of 25fps…

Cheerson CX 10 - Surprising build quality!

I finally got around to writing a review for this little drone I've had for a few months now. I bought it for about $17 and it still seems to be flying even after it got slightly chewed by my dog (pictures taken before that happened!). It's a pretty cool drone.. and pretty safe to fly too. I can't envision much going wrong unless if you lack common sense and fly it into a group of people/ animals. It's great for learning the ropes for any new flyers - …

Fly/Work Balance

It's easy to get consumed with all of the design, development, and testing of DIY UAV's. Add to that the daily barrage of "drone" media happenings/hype and it's easy to get in a rut. Sometimes it's nice to just fire up an aircraft and take it for a spin. Nothing like getting a little air into…

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?
