Did you know you could build your own Li-Ion battery pack ?
Li-Ion batteries have the highest energy density per unit of mass available to us.
In comparison with LiPo batteries, you get 30% less weight for the same mAh capacity, which translates into direct endurance or increased flight autonomy.
We are happy to share DroneePlotter - Drone Flight Log Analysis Tool with drone comunity to make analyse and sharing easier.
DroneePlotter works on browser not (on server) Just drag and drop the log file . It parses binary log file inside browser instantly with Java scrip, and it works very fast .
It generates flight…Continue
We are launching the Fly4Fall campaign, a worldwide initiative to crowd-source science from the drone community over the next few weeks. Please pass on to others you know!
