We have been using the L1 only Reach GPS from EMLID for about 2 months. We were first attracted to the fact that it claimed that it was going to be integrated to Pixhawk and would then, via a system of magic, give us centimeter accurate geotagged images, eliminating the need for ground control forever.
While we wait for that to become a reality, we have tried out the Reach as a replacement to our normal survey…Continue
It's a solution that you can build and upload the last APM 3.2.1 code for MEGAPIRATE BOARDS and AVR atmega2560 GENERICS BOARD with I2C bus communication.
As you know, megapirate team stop building APM and the last code was 3.1.5 version, we are desired work and port the last AVR APM 3.2.1 to this board, megapirate and AVR boards with atmega 2560 and…Continue
Good news from Blue Robotics: they've crossed the final(?) frontier and ArduPilot is now underwater. Welcome ArduSub! (In historic progression since the founding of the project it was Plane, Copter, Rover, Boat and now Sub)
Each year, the Association of Technical Diagnostics of the Czech Republic organizes the DIAGO2016 conference, which took place this year in the spa town of Luhačovice in the HARMONIE I hotel.…Continue
New Raspberry Pi 3 is about to be announced, it will bring 64-bit 1.2Ghz cores and Wi-Fi connectivity. It is surely an exciting update for Navio2 and we can’t wait to get it into the air.
It is expected that the new processor will be similar to…Continue
More great Solo work from the London-based team at Accelerated Dynamics.
Not all of the adventures that CanberraUAV have with experimental aircraft go as well as we might hope. This is the story of our recent build of a large QuadPlane and how the flight ended in a crash.
As part of our efforts in developing aircraft for the…Continue

BAT-SAFE is a low cost safety device developed by Tom Mast, aircraft design engineer. It's easy to use, and literally put a lid on the dangers of malfunctioning batteries. They just released a Kickstarter campaign. It has the potential to become a standard to people that use lipo batteries and want some piece of…Continue
Just a teaser for now. Looks like no aerial category again this year, but ArduRover teams should get ready for another year of domination. And if you're feeling brave, they're teasing this, too:…Continue
We are now shipping the RCbenchmark Series 1520. It measures overall efficiency, current, thrust, voltage, and motor speed. The device communicates with our…Continue
It is well known that drones, along with other aircraft, possess a certain safety risk when operated. This…Continue

uAvionix Corporation, the leader in unmanned ADS-B technology and Dronecode, the nonprofit organization developing a common, shared open source platform for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), today announced a plan to collaborate on advanced development in ADS-B ‘sense…
Cobham have recently released their "Aviator 200 UAV" - a satellite datalink system specifically made for small UAV's.
Although you'll likely need deep pockets to afford one, it shows that the satellite communications industry has realised there is a market for small UAV's that require beyond-line-of-sight communications. As more manufacturers come onboard the…Continue
Since my main interest is FPV, and I use an OSD, I was interested originally to make a vector graphics replacement for MinimOSD. Here is the original diydrones discussion . Though that worked well, I next decided to incorporate…Continue
We all love drones, and we love to just buy one and go outside and make it fly by itself, this is great. But what is actually going on inside the drone?
In this post I'm going to explain a bit how a loiter controller works, with the difference is that I'll show my controller, share the python code and that I'm using a motion capture…Continue
Dear friends, I would like to introduce you the RTKite GNSS RTK L1+L2 module receiver.
Designed specifically for Pro and Semi-pro UAV, Robotics and Industrial applications, it connects directly to the…Continue
