I wonder what the general consensus is for what people now use and prefer for the throttle stick and whether to have it spring loaded so that it sits in the middle (hover position) compared to having…Continue

The main down side of this ZeroUav system is user manual is absolutely appalling and virtually useless. Also the GCS for PC is not very intuitive at all. The…Continue
I made up these hi tech shock absorber legs for my grandsons quad we are building. Considering the hours I often spend to find a better design for making copter legs that don't disintegrate on every hard landing, It took me about 10 min to stop laughing from the simplicity of the brilliance of this light bulb moment..…Continue

If you have a housing that is covering over all of your electronics such as a plastic container,.. then when you descend or ascend quickly the pressure inside the container changes and gives your barometer an false reading.
For example if you descend quickly the pressure increases inside…Continue
