Quad copter startups have been hit or miss & it looks like the same pile of plastic scrap that every startup besides Apple produces, but what they showed here was exactly what I wanted to do for years, with ground vehicles. It looks like it could really navigate…Continue
Thermal imaging camera for gas detection
Under certain circumstances, infra-red cameras are highly suitable for detecting gas escapes and the presence of gas in the air. They can be also helpful during tests on improving environmental safety. A thermal camera can detect…Continue
Intel Aero is a cool little drone for developers that can be configured for various tasks and applications.

1. Install latest firmware on vehicle. We did our tests on version…Continue
This is the follow up video showing a test flight of the monster 32000 lumen flashlight mounted on a drone (and remote operated via an ESP8266 wifi DIY solution).
Fore those interested, check my previous build video about mounting the DX80 flashlight on a drone : …Continue
The use of drones in agriculture is the future. Heavy lift drones capable of crop dusting and drones equipped with multispectral sensors will change the way in which farming is done.
With greater refinements in drone technology and implementation, we will see the agricultural drone sector take off. According to Global Markets Insight Inc., the Agriculture Drones Market will be valued at $1 billion by 2024.
How are drones being used for farming? Check this Infographic from…Continue
