"I agree with Euan. Sometime back i had this in mind. But after deep brainstorming, i found extremely few situations where drones would be used to deliver emergency medical supplies. Survival supplies is a practical scenario though."

KENYA CIVIL AVIATION AUTHORITY FINALLY SPOKE

The Kenya Civil Aviation Authority finally broke the silence about the use of UAVs in the Kenyan airspace. This was probably provoked a couple of drone articles and incidences that have been published recently. Just recently, a writer for a local daily wrote this …See More

Hi Folks,

My setup is as follows:

AIRBORNE: APM with 3dr telemetry module

BRIDGE: Android Device that supports USB host. In my case, I used a tablet called ODYS running 4.2 jellybean. I installed an app called MAVCELL. …

ArduCopter 3.1 auto-landing in strong winds

Posted on January 1, 2014 at 11:30am 4 Comments

I'm very impressed by how my newly built Tarot t960 performed an autolanding in relatively strong winds with ArduCopter 3.1. I haven't spent so much time tuning the copter but the auto-landing was quite impressive. Landed back at the exact same spot where it took off. Winds were about 25km/h.

Thanks to the development team.
