Hi DIY DRONES friends,
Because of the "man on the moon" 50TH anniversary I would like to share with you the 3d printed moon project. It is a 22 GB digital model from Nasa LRO data that can be any size 3d printed.

Freedman -- is a vertical take-off and landing fixed wing with tilting transformation. The wing length is 2.1 meters, the flight speed is 18m/s, the A7R camera is mounted, the battery is 6S16000mah, the flight time is 70 minutes, the take-off weight is 6.5kg.
After my field orientation control algo worked, I applied it to the quadrotor that I am building. Then, I noticed there are about 30% of chance of reverse spin in any of the hour motors. Then, things get pretty challenging, there are only about 0.7^4 of change that all motor will spin in correct direction. In real life, it is painful to start the…Continue

We are happy to introduce our new PCB boards, dedicated to the use of the famous Pixhawk autopilot : the Cube!
The Mini carrier board now comes with a Mini PDB 180A, that would help to keep the drone assembly as clean and compact as possible. You can find more details on the user manual (bottom of product page)…Continue
We are developing a function to share the stream video and controller drone with multi Ground control station (2-3 or more GCS) via internet ( wifi, 4G LTE).Continue

This is a quick test and comparison between uBlox F9 and M8 series GPS. uBlox ZED-F9P is a multiband GPS that theoritically gets a better precision and faster acquisition.
Test was done using Ardusimple's SimpleRTK2B evaluation board.
The TBT-AV1 from Thomas Butler Technology, Rockford, Illinois, USA is a clean-sheet design 300Mhz flight/robotics controller using the Atmel/Microchip SAM E70/V71 (ARM M7 core with hardware AES256 encryption and FPU) automotive grade micro-controller. The I/O is compatible with…Continue
Simple testflight of my E-Flite Convergence equipped with a pixracer flight controller complemented with a "sbus to pwm" home-made circuit to extend the number of servo outputs. Flight stack: Ardupilot Quadplane; Flight mode: loiter.

We are very often asked about thermal camera performance to detect man-sized target (approx 1.7x0.5m) or detect small car (approx 2.5m x 2.5m). So we decided to create a short video that shows the thermal camera capability to detect different sized objects (car, person, tractor etc.) at different distances (more in…Continue
