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:
After my field orientation control algo worked, I applied it to the quadrotor that I am building. Then, I noticed there are about 30% of chance of reverse spin in any of the hour motors. Then, things get pretty challenging, there are only about 0.7^4 of change that all motor will spin in correct direction. In real life, it is painful to start the…Continue
We are happy to introduce our new PCB boards, dedicated to the use of the famous Pixhawk autopilot : the Cube!
The Mini carrier board now comes with a Mini PDB 180A, that would help to keep the drone assembly as clean and compact as possible. You can find more details on the user manual (bottom of product page)…Continue
We are developing a function to share the stream video and controller drone with multi Ground control station (2-3 or more GCS) via internet ( wifi, 4G LTE).Continue
They began with the Skydio, a quad copter which could follow subjects through forests with only machine vision. Today, subject tracking cameras based on machine vision have reached consumers in standalone packages, the facebook portal, the…Continue
This is a quick test and comparison between uBlox F9 and M8 series GPS. uBlox ZED-F9P is a multiband GPS that theoritically gets a better precision and faster acquisition.
Test was done using Ardusimple's SimpleRTK2B evaluation board.
Simple testflight of my E-Flite Convergence equipped with a pixracer flight controller complemented with a "sbus to pwm" home-made circuit to extend the number of servo outputs. Flight stack: Ardupilot Quadplane; Flight mode: loiter.
We are very often asked about thermal camera performance to detect man-sized target (approx 1.7x0.5m) or detect small car (approx 2.5m x 2.5m). So we decided to create a short video that shows the thermal camera capability to detect different sized objects (car, person, tractor etc.) at different distances (more in…Continue
