Well, the day finally has come when I am ready to give up on this endeavor. My goal was to build a manned, internal combustion quad copter. I will not say the project was a failure because I learned so much on my journey, but I just see other avenues which seem more promising.
Of note, from the project I did successfully build a…Continue

One of the most difficult risks to manage with all sUAS flight operations, and in fact with most remote-controlled vehicle systems is radio interference. Detecting the threat and evading it is almost impossible without proper RF instrumentation, namely a decent spectrum analyser. It's not something even developers are taking to the field too frequently, not…Continue
At the end of this new DeltaQuad compilation video, you can see the 3D rendering that was created from a survey mission of a dutch peninsula. The mission was flown using a DeltaQuad Pro #MAP carrying a Sony A7R3 with a 35mm lens.…Continue

Pretty much everyone these days knows that some companies can launch thousands of drones in the air and perform a breathtaking show with light and moving animation. This is an incredible piece of engineering, but in attempt to do something similar one should consider technological, personnel and logistical…Continue

Multi-chart and multi-scale features implemented to DRONEE PLOTTER. Now you can visualize multiple log attributes on multiple charts, zoom to the time frame synchronously. Also, you can visualize multiple scale data on the same…Continue
The ideas have no value, the important thing is the execution....
A few years ago, I came up with a solution to move loads with drones efficiently,
which consisted in articulating the arms of the drone, as the load moved out of this...
This in order to keep the thrust center aligned with the center of mass.
I gave much…Continue

Today FlightZoomer Cockpit 3.1 has been released (in the MS store the name is still FlightZoomer Cockpit 3). The app offers a number of nice improvements over the big version 3 release from August.
The most notable one are interactive checklists, which are demonstrated in this video:
This features supports entirely…Continue

This demonstration simulates flapping movements when the bat lifts up as well as thrusts forward.
We already recognized the fundamental mechanisms of flight of insects and bats through the divine formula.…Continue
Ten years ago, when I started this site, we were solving some hard technical problems in aerial robotics (such as getting drones to actually fly without crashing!). Now those problems are largely solved (and many of us went on to found companies that today use drone data, rather than making drones themselves), my inner geek took me to the next set… Continue
Based on the reception for our first teaser video, we at aeiou think some of you might be interested in seeing our next trailer for the Dawn on board AI platform for UAS.
