This Boeing experience seems very interesting to me. This octocopter is the biggest I've seen. I estimate that the propellers should be about 2100mm.
I ask some questions about whether this really makes sense:
Batteries and flight time: 7 or 15 minutes is enough?
This prototype could…
Graffiti drone - a project by Tsuru Robotics, implemented in association with Interactive Lab, has become a truly unique undertaking. If only because, no one before us, had designed the painter drone, with complete automatic control. The demonstration of this wonder took place in the Winzavod Center of Contemporary Art, in Moscow. Misha Most, the artist, was drawing on a computer, which prefigured drone’s trajectory.
It looked natural and…Continue

There has never been a fad held in as much secrecy as the self driving car craze. It's been 15 years of startups, yet no source code or algorithm has ever been released by anyone working on a full sized self driving car, while past generations were quick to release source…Continue
Well, that's happening.
I don't know what's happening inside the Ardupilot community, it's really a community project or what else?.
But as i know and you know, the community doesn't make it private any related project, Ardupilot is a Free Software and open sourced project for related projects and for well like many others.
After somewhat of a gap we have reached the next episode in our series of autopilot precision. In this series of videos / articles we test multiple drone autopilots in terms of precision by flying them on a simple photogrammetry route created in UgCS mission planning software.
In this part we analyse the results of Yuneec H520. Next…

Drones have the potential to perform many useful tasks, such as search and rescue, package delivery and aerial imaging. But in order to perform these tasks in an outdoor environment, the vehicles need to be able to control their position under the influence of wind gusts. This is especially true when flying…
