Hi Guys.Been away from drones for a while, now there seems to be no PID tuning options for loiter etc.It wouldn't bother me except my copter is rocking about all over when loitering in a breeze but…Continue

"Very nice and clean build. What is the length between the motors? What motors are you using? Any idea of the all up weight at this point?"

Herelink general questions

Hi all.Ive just discovered the herelink and think it would be ideal for my new project. Ive have tried to keep the multicopter shell as small as possible but the herelink air unit is quite large, especially if you have 2 HDMI plugs sticking out of the end. I havent got my hand on one yet so was wondering if anyone has used the slim 90deg micro HDMI plugs. Unfortunately they have a large PCB on the back so may interfere if you try to use 2.…See More

"Its not that small. 750mm between motors and 6kg with Sony A5000 I would really like to know from the dev team if there is any active compensation for FC location or does it just kinda work with a bit of offset?  I dont think there is any…"

Hi everyone.

I would like to share my latest 7kg multicopter design with the DIY drones community.

Having designed and operated fixed wing, helicopter and multicopter camera systems for a number of years now I have learned what is important, at least to my operation, namely low vibration, endurance and ease of use.

The first two are…

Finally I have a good UAV ground station.

Having completed many UAV filming jobs from locations without vehicle access I was looking to improve the logistics of getting the equipment on site. I have occasionally left some vital components in the car 2km away I wanted to have everything (except the copter) in one box.

Holden Drone by CAT2. Some summer testing with Arduplane

Posted on December 12, 2013 at 12:55pm 10 Comments

Our Holden Drone has been finished for some for some time now but I have not had time to edit and upload any video until now.

During these two merged flights we were testing most of the Arduplane modes including some tight figure 8 waypoint routes around the field. RTL, circle and FBW all worked well. This was all done line of…

Hi Vince,
I'm a tinkerer and an inventor myself and I noticed your servo zoom mount for your NEX camera. I was going to make one up myself but I felt I would ask if you would share. On that note I liked your 2 axis gimbal also! I wasn't considering printing one myself , but yours looked very light. Do you share your models ? I would certainly give you credit.
