Of note, from the project I did successfully build a…

"See" more of your RF environment in the field

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…

Drone with Articulating Arms

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…

3D Robotics
What we're doing at our sister site, DIY Robocars (crazy fast autonomous car racing)

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
