I just got around to testing out my hardware after I got my frame assembled for my quad. I unplugged everything then plugged the USB cable in to both the ArduPilot2560 + Oilpan and my computer. The…Continue

Anyone know of where the power distribution board can be found? I downloaded the PDF images to make my own, but I'd rather buy it honestly.

I am going to send up a Chumby Hacker Board so I designed a bit larger main plate and carrier board to fit the CHB a bit better. With this larger carrier board, I can fit more "stuff" on it. Does…Continue

I'm starting to see tri-copters becoming more and more popular, so I'm asking the DIYDrones community if there is any interest in making a tri-copter frame that has interchangeable parts with the quad-copter frame.

Following up on my first post here, I have moved on to designing the airframe that will carry my Chumby Hacker Board.

UAV with Chumby Hacker Board – Configuring a CHB

* Get the CHB setup to scan and dump wireless networks.

* Build a drone,… Continue
