Build a Drone Parachute (Free STL Files)

If you have a 3D printer this is an easy way to build a parachute that is controlled automatically/manually from Pixhawk.I suggest getting a metal servo arm instead of what is shown. I built this 2 years ago and the metal arm is a must.…See More

"I see. Your price is fair enough. Good luck. It is a niche product. But I would think it would be great as a backup for someone that already has one."

"I have many projects and planes. I bought it for agriculture but ended up using a Skywalker similar to Event 38 or 3DR's old plane. It just sat here so I'm selling  to buy more drone stuff. The Parrot Sequoia is pricey!!!"

I know that selling here is probably frowned upon but I'm not sure eBay folks are up on this bird (since I have seen none for sale there) so I thought I would let this community have a crack at it first due to advanced knowledge of these systems. Message me with offer. This is running on QGroundControl and X8R. No radio. Set up file for Taranis can be emailed. Never flown but setup and working. May need fine tuning for hover and such. Thanks.…

Phantom 3 No-Servo Cargo Drop System

Posted on June 29, 2017 at 12:30pm 21 Comments

I'm making these very cheap.

Designing more work related, in this case also fun, uses for drones. 3D printed "attach and go" drop system. Working on version for Phantom 4 next.

Walabot. Has anyone seen/experimented with this?

Posted on April 30, 2017 at 10:00am 3 Comments

Walabot is a 3D imaging sensor that lets you uncover things hidden in the world around you. This is very cheap and seems that there is a wide range of applications for working related drones. Just wanted your thoughts.
