Welcome to the largest community for amateur Unmanned Aerial Vehicles! Use the tabs and drop-down menus above to navigate the site.
This community is the birthplace of ArduPilot, the world's first universal autopilot platform (planes, multicopters of all sorts and ground rovers). Today the Pixhawk autopilot runs a variety of powerful free and open UAV software systems, including:
A hybrid drone attachment which can pick up, transport, and manipulate objects as well as adaptive land on uneven terrain.
- Delta-robot like 3DOF manipulation
- Precise and fast manipulation
- Low moving masses, less disturbance of rotorcraft flight…
It's customary and traditional that we celebrate the addition of every 1,000 new members here and share the traffic stats. We've now passed 90,000 members!
A few observations on this milestone:
We're pleased to announce the upcoming launch of our newest online course, which several colleagues at the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) have already…Continue
As you probably know, the increasing temperatures as created a generation of wild fires that are destroying the forests of California, Chile, Spain, Asia, and other different dry areas of the world.
With this problem in mind we have created this hexacopter to perform Automatic Aerial Restorations. We used digital fabrication…Continue
Airspeed sensors have been a major concern for both manned, and unmanned aviation alike. Yet almost every fixed wing or VTOL vehicle is dependent on it. So what is wrong with these sensors and why are they used?
A standard airspeed sensors consists of a pitot tube, a temperature sensor and 2 pressure sensors. The pitot tube has 2 ports (holes), one at the tip (like an injection needle) which is called the dynamic port, and…Continue
