gps Waterproofing and impact protection?

I was wondering if there were any ideas for waterproofing the gps module w/o interfering with it's operation? I'm also wondering about protecting it from impacts while still having it in a useful…Continue

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Understanding the power is the first step in controlling it.

Frankly I find the whole thing fascinating, and can't get it out of my head. Never having played with RC, only toys, the ideas this is sprouting in my brain are overwhelming! An RC "thing" with a brain...

Most interested in starting with a UGV, adding a brain to my crawler. ;) I have the crawler already, and I figure stuff can't fall from the ground.

Also like the idea of spherical robots like Greg Schroll's Gyrosphere [ ]. Would very much like to figure something like that out.

The planes and helis are also very cool, but I have zero experience with them other than some toy indoor helicopters, so there is rather a lot of learning curve there.

Would also very much like to learn general fabrication techniques, like carbon fibre/fibreglass, metal working and other DIY stuff. I have some soldering experience and some woodworking experience and am generally handy, but am looking into more 'professional' upgrading of some of my skills.

Am thinking about setting up an autopilot on my RC Crawler, but seem to have caught myself between versions. Newer APM 2 is better than the first, but also not yet compatible with the ArduRover software developped for the first... Frustrating.

Last weekend I had a chance to test a proof-of-concept for a harvesting-bucket. I strapped a bucket to the…

This drone 'stuff' seems to have taken over my brain, with FPV thanks to John Arne Birkeland's "Crawler 1" videos. I like how John's thinking process worked, testing the vehicle's drone capabilities via FPV driving made sense to me, and also FPV just looked cool!


So I've…
