I have recently finished my Master studies in electrical engineering and robotics. The focus of my thesis are UAVs and the title is UAV Navigation for Area Coverage and Time Optimization. One of the goals of this study was to answer two questions:

I wanted to post an update on the work I have been doing on the techwing design.
The new design is scaled up some to a 40 inch WS. It also includes real Grantz type winglets, a longer tip cord and fixed LE slots.
Techpod kits are going on sale from today until july 31st They will be available for $140 to all US and Canadian customers.
All newly shipped techpod kits will be shipped with these great upgrade parts which make the tail and wing very easy to remove and transport.Continue
Last academic year at KU Leuven, we designed, built and test flown a VTOL UAV: the VertiKul. During this project we gratefully made use of the info and support of the DIY Drones community and therefore we would like to share our results on this project.
The VertiKul is designed for automated aerial…Continue
First off these guys were in the wrong and got caught, I am not defending the stupidity of flying close to an aircraft. However, to create a story with a headline "nearly hit" misleading most. Drones can be dangerous if flown next to aircraft. This is theoretically possible and flyers should stay away to…Continue
This article is written for all levels of pilots to follow as a guideline in your flying progression. With the many choices that UAV pilots have today for vehicle configurations, flight management and equipment it is important to remember that your vehicle can be dangerous and expensive if not…Continue
Although it is less of an issue for the DIY/hobby end of things (we all seem able to use the word 'drone' without thinking of hellfire missiles), but I've been getting pretty tired of the argument in wider circles and dancing around trying not…Continue
130h 3D printing process has finished. Take a look at FORTUS400mc UAV apps performance!
Here at DIYDrones, our community constitutes only a portion of a much larger movement; that of empowered individuals and groups. Music artist, M.I.A., has embraced these types of movements and incorporated an onslaught of DIY imagery in…Continue
Luftfotos24 presents the first UAS product line "Beast series”. The system allows everyone to take aerial pictures, research, Orthophotos, aerial surveying and precision farming.Continue
Again this platform is not for private UAV project. If you are looking for a great private UAS platform take a look at this one Ranger Ex UAV platform
Latest version of the …Continue
We are excited to announce a major addition to the Guide: The UAV Daily. This page brings together all the latest content on UAVs from across the web. There are still more feeds to be added…Continue
Preface: My fault, I should know better. I've flown over to these geese on numerous occasions without incident. But this time I was controlling from further away and therefore my depth perception wasn't as keen. I don't blame the goose all, however…Continue
The first picture of everything together finally! I had problems fully installing the wings due to the wiring coming from the wings so I still have to tweak that, I just was really excited to get a pic of everything finally. So ignore the fact the the wings aren't…Continue
About third of people who attended expo were in uniform. MOD of Spain was personally here for about a half a day. Indra, MBDA, Thales and Airbus have created…Continue
James Masterton has been experimenting with UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) off the Perth coastline to see if they might help spot sharks. Here he shares his experiences and provides some clues as to what now needs to be done if UAVs could be part of the…Continue
I and Noemi Salaris are working on ProjectEMS. ProjectEMS focuses on the development of two environmental monitoring stations. One is fixed at the ground and another is a mobile unmanned vehicle. The stations will measure values such as radioactivity in the area, or atmospheric pollution. The mobile…Continue

New kid on the blog - the Ranger Ex UAS platform.
So much has happened since the good "old"…Continue
What a year this has been! We'd like to offer our thanks to 3D Robotics and everyone who contributed to the diydrones community. More information…Continue
