I have been having quite a few random problems with my arducopter. Mostly stemming from what ended in a pretty bad crash a couple months ago. My quad seems like it has wanted to immediately go to a…Continue
From the way the motor test video looks we wont have to worry about burning out our APM any more by having the motor outs plugged in without battery? Is that correct? I remember it used to cause…Continue
This is just something that has been bothering me lately. I will start at the very beginning. My quad flies great in stable mode, but I have one little problem. I only have 5 channels on my receiver…Continue
I am using the ng code and the dip switches for putting it in x mode seem unresponsive. I have the first one down and the others up but it wants to fly in + mode. I am not really sure what i have…Continue
I know this is probably a little off topic, but this seemed like something that the community might like to hear about for prototyping and as a breadboard alternative. This is a ballpoint pen with conductive ink for creating circuits on paper or any other…Continue
It looks to me that the sad day we all knew would eventually come has arrived. The first person that I have heard of plotting to use R/C planes to bomb the Pentagon and the Capital building. It appears he was planning to use some kind of autopilot given that they stated the plane was to be "GPS guided". Below is a link to the CNN page that has the details. I only hope this doesn't lead to a complete lock down of the R/C and sUAS industry. It is so young and ripe for growth…Continue
I have been very intrigued by the everything the DIY Drones community has accomplished. I have had a great time building, and flying (even the crashing part has been a fun learning process). I have gotten to a point where I would really like some recommendations on some books for learning more about autonomous robotics. The more the book applies to airborne vehicles the better, but it doesn't have to be all about them.
