I received several emails about an Iris problem by Ray? Said he could not post here? Perhaps he can reply.
Just fyi this project is still on going. Of late I've been working on a small turbopump project which includes the use of the 5-axis cnc project we started here on DIYD.
I just saw some good progress on the antenna tracker for Pixhawk which means it
I'm working on the first iteration of a micro drone using the Airbot controller and a carbon fiber frame. As soon as the parts come in. I have the controller and It works very well with the PX4 firmware.
I've been looking at tiny fiber optic cameras. A tiny fiber optic camera could be gimbal mounted on a micro drone.
What are the requirements for our tiny camera? Do we want night vision with IR illumination? Is thermal imagining an option?

Well it's been a long and arduous journey to develop an APM/Pixhawk UAV Spaceplane but it looks like in 2015 there will finally be some interesting things to post about the project.
We are nearing completion of the mobile mission control including t
After a coupla years of thought and compromises and decisions on how to make a rigid small CNC machine this is what I've come up with.
It will be cast solid aluminum which is the only real solution for the rigidity issue. If you could do it in cast ir
Finally! I have something to do HIL testing
I have successfully flown a two stage Rocket dropped from a Mig 29 to orbit using HIL!
I think we can use this for balloon drop missions as well as sub-orbital HIL testing. I can run it in X-Plane 9 now so I
I have a new idea for testing a cold gas thruster system for spacecraft using the quad copter platform. I think we can carry a paintball CO2 tank and use the thrusters to help stabilize the quad as a good test for our cold gas system. Want to see a Read more…
I'm having a little trouble getting HIL working with X-Plane 9.
I have X-Plane running and I followed the directions in the wiki. I can fly the plane with my transmitter but the trims are way off so I have to struggle quite a bit ti fly it.
APM Repair Service
I now offer a service to repair your APM for a $20 flat rate. If you send me your APM along with $20 and a self addressed return envelope with postage so I can return your APM to you if I can repair it or not. If I can't repair it
Warning: If you power the APM 2.5 from a BEC you should include the diode fix used on the APM 2! It drops the voltage to 5.5V which is what the 3DR Power Module does!
I've noticed a lot of USB connect issues lately and I have found some solutions. Th
