H.R. 658 FAA Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2011
No amendments regarding sUAS exmptions
So I was reading the article on the MIT guys using the kinect to map out a physical space and what struck me was not the amazing mapping technology, but their really great guard they've got on their quad props.
It looks like the straight edges are CF Rods... does…Continue
This is the sUAS flying over the nuclear plant in Japan, does anyone have info on it, I am struggling.
After using this setup for as my 'mode' switch:
Hi all, its wonderful to see wonderful creations... I've been envious (not jealous :) ) of many a post now, and decided to get even! Unfortunately here (Nairobi, Kenya) the electronics are limiting, no access to good airframes save from importing, leaving us enthusiasts disappointed, so I have decided to start with an airframe, then build the logic to fly it using a small…Continue
Here's another cool autonomous vehicle project on Kickstarter. Pledge $400 or more and, if the project hits its funding goal, "We send you a remotely controlled 1m (3.2ft) long, articulated, inflatable Protei in KIT to assemble yourself. The…
Here is my quick mod to make it easier to fill up my Easy Star with all the gear. The lid will be held in place with 6 pair of magnets glued to the fuselage. I did the prototype with 3 mm balsa but the next version will be in 2 mm ply. I will probably make a box on…Continue

Having recently developed an interest in CAD and modelling (i.e. industrial design tools not standing around in a bikini). I found this handy video on CadJunkie that runs over some of the different approaches some of the different packages take (Subdivision, NURBS surfacing and solid modelling). Looking at some of the awesome CAD renders on here i'm sure many members are already quite familiar with this, but for anyone who like me hasn't really touched CAD since the…Continue

Here is video of first flights with the new lighter Hashcopter. PIDs make it a bit agressive and unstable because of reduced weight. Also you can see the massive camera flying with the copter.
Story goes like this:
I had a bad crash after few hours of flight time with Hashcopter. Crash was caused by flying the battery too empty and one off the ESCs cutting power off. The copter is capable of landing with 7 motors but I made a mistake flying to…Continue
Detecting the period was hard. Fast fourier transform needed much more cycles than our flight time.
The best result was by testing…

It is only a design exercise with a wingspan of 1640mm, and a lot of space for electronics and batteries and very easy access to electronics. Last image shows 6 x 5000mAh/3S.
I just came across this Wired.com article and it made me wonder if there are any projects out there in the DIY community that have a radio/audio broadcast or recording theme?
Although the article focuses on people…
