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:
Finally, after a long development time, I am happy to announce that FlightZoomer 3 is released!
To celebrate the launch of the FlightZoomer apps, the FlightZoomer 3 Cockpit-app is available at no cost from the Windows 10 Store. Be sure to get the app for free before the price goes up.
For those who don’t know…
This might be interesting for all.. I spent a few weeks with the F2S all-in-1 flight controller, testing on a few planes and I think this is worth sharing. Status: Unknown and underrated
When you love drones as well as rovers you would want to have both of them together. Just by adding a set of wheels to my already existing PlutoX drone and with the help of some simple coding, I developed this hybrid drone.
What I wanted to do was to build a prototype that can fly and walk on the ground as well so in short a combination of…Continue
We recently ran a 2-week UAV build and coding mechatronics Summer School at UWE Bristol for students from the Ecole des Mines d’Ales. Great students and a great venue made for a very successful course and much fun was had by all!
Huge thanks to @UWEBristol and of course the…Continue
Drones have already been in use in the security and surveillance industry, bringing a significant change in how the operations are carried out. However, most current aerial security and surveillance systems are either tied to a particular drone hardware, or need…Continue
It’s probably time to provide some background to my blog posts on various ground control stations we’ve been designing and manufacturing, because our experiences over the years may give some food for thought for fellow UAV/USV developers.
Already in early 2010 it became clear that the multirotor…Continue
The ArduPilot development team is delighted to announce a new stable release of plane, version 3.9.0.
For those of you who have been testing the 3.9.0beta releases then you won’t see any surprises here. That are no changes since 3.9.0beta6. Also, many thanks for testing the betas!
For those of…Continue
To ensure the stable supply of electricity, regular inspection and maintenance of the installations are important and essential. In the past, this kind of inspection work in China are mainly finished by…Continue
Sky Eye-10NLT is one 1080P 10X night vision zoom camera specially designed for DJI Matrice 200. This gimbal is developed based on DJI Skyport, which means it is seamlessly compatible with Matrice 200 drone: all gimbal functions can be controlled through DJI GO APP and controller, like Yaw/Pitch, zoom,…Continue
Learning becomes easier when we add a little bit of fun to it. Here using the idea of obstacle detection, rather than just implementing simple obstacle avoidance in the drones path, I thought of playing a game with it.
To understand basic ideas of IR sensors and detection, I thought of building a game based on this using a drone. In this…Continue
