Here is a concept shot of what is a continual evolution of designs. This is way off in the future, but is the end goal of what I'm working towards. Now that I'm starting to acquire actual parts and pieces I'm a bit concerned about the weight. But first things first, and one step at a time. I still have yet to build even one good rotor blade, but I do have a…Continue
This is a great demo of the new multipoint cablecam feature on Solo, with five-axis splines and smoothed timing on each path. All programmed with a few button presses. There's simple autonomy and there's Hollywood-turned-into-an-app autonomy -- and this is just a glimpse of what you can do with Dronekit on Solo.

Hi, I bought these very cheap hobbyking rectangular carbon tubes. I made this not so serious experiment with them as they could potentially be great to build your own multicopter frames. Tridge, by the way, used those recently in his quadplane build he posted about on diydrones.
And, this is a not so serious contribution to coming Easter…Continue
