Lithium ion batteries have a higher energy capacity than Lithium Polymer packs, in general. Higher capacity lithium ion packs can be designed if the current draw of the drones are known. We have built a web utility to find the right chemistry of…

BatMon v4 released One of the main challenges faced with BatMon was the installation overhead. Installing BatMon v3 took over an hour on a new battery pack. Second challenge was the cost overhead of a BMS system on each battery. We have reduced…

BatMon is a module that connects to you batteries to "smartify" them. BatMon reads the cell voltage, current and relays it to autopilot or the onboard computers. We made a quite a bit of improvements in the latest v3 devkit. The most important is…

"Batmons do not have an electronic safety cutoff. It relies on the autopilot to make the decision to land/cutoff power based on the state-of-charge data provided by Batmon"

Designing electric multicopters for a specific flight time is a complex multidisciplinary optimization problem. This short blog post is some of my thoughts on how to think about this problem. Obviously, there so many different ways of doing this and…

"Hi Thomas,

We have the "smart battery monitor" developed already
Battery alarms aren't good enough enough for accurate battery estimate"

Over the past couple of months, we have been working on a "smartification kit" to obtain accurate state of charge for Lithium batteries. Currently most systems use voltage based capacity estimation which is inaccurate and make it hard for flyers…
