My previous blog of the Jetson TX2/Pixhawk 2 build includes the use of an RFDesign RFD 868x telemetry unit. Here's the detail of how I set it up. As usual, the post can be found at…Continue
From the University of Washington:
Drones use GPS to find their way without a pilot. But GPS signals can be easily blocked by tall skyscrapers or…Continue
RCExplorer, or [David], or just ‘The Swede’, has come up with a bicopter kit. Yes, there are a lot of…Continue
I have just completed my rebuild of The Groundhog hexacopter with a Pixhawk2 and NVIDIA Jetson TX2 companion computer. This is in preparation for the coding blogs I am posting and further work integrating depth cameras and machine learning. For those interested, details of the build are posted on my blog at…Continue
Post-Processed Kinematic (PPK) technique is widely used for mapping with drones. In this scenario Reach RS/RS+ base on the ground and Reach M+ rover on a drone independently log raw data which is post-processed after the flight.
For mapping, it’s crucial to sync an onboard camera and Reach M+ rover. To ensure smooth and reliable synchronization of…

I have just published Part 2 of this series, designed to develop skills in Python and ROS so as to achieve flexible control of a UAV. It's based on a Pixhawk FCU with Raspberry Pi companion computer. The Pixhawk is running PX4, but it would also work with minor modifications with Arducopter.
I have also re-released Part 1 with some important updates…Continue

Finally, after a long development time, I am happy to announce that FlightZoomer 3 is released!
To celebrate the launch of the FlightZoomer apps, the FlightZoomer 3 Cockpit-app is available at no cost from the Windows 10 Store. Be sure to get the app for free before the price goes up.
For those who don’t know FlightZoomer yet,…
This might be interesting for all.. I spent a few weeks with the F2S all-in-1 flight controller, testing on a few planes and I think this is worth sharing. Status: Unknown and underrated

When you love drones as well as rovers you would want to have both of them together. Just by adding a set of wheels to my already existing PlutoX drone and with the help of some simple coding, I developed this hybrid drone.
What I wanted to do was to build a prototype that can fly and walk on the ground as well so in short a combination of…Continue

We recently ran a 2-week UAV build and coding mechatronics Summer School at UWE Bristol for students from the Ecole des Mines d’Ales. Great students and a great venue made for a very successful course and much fun was had by all!
Huge thanks to @UWEBristol and of course the students themselves.
Drones were standard 450 frames, Pixhawk running Arducopter. …Continue

Drones have already been in use in the security and surveillance industry, bringing a significant change in how the operations are carried out. However, most current aerial security and surveillance systems are either tied to a particular drone hardware, or need significant manual intervention during operation. These solutions lack…Continue

It’s probably time to provide some background to my blog posts on various ground control stations we’ve been designing and manufacturing, because our experiences over the years may give some food for thought for fellow UAV/USV developers.
Already in early 2010 it became clear that the multirotor revolution, the boom in FPV RC and especially various autopilot development…Continue
The ArduPilot development team is delighted to announce a new stable release of plane, version 3.9.0.
For those of you who have been testing the 3.9.0beta releases then you won’t see any surprises here. That are no changes since 3.9.0beta6. Also, many thanks for testing the betas!
For those of you coming from the last stable 3.8.5 release there are a lot…Continue
To ensure the stable supply of electricity, regular inspection and maintenance of the installations are important and essential. In the past, this kind of inspection work in China are mainly finished by manual work. And always cost a lot of time and money, meanwhile, often very…Continue
Sky Eye-10NLT is one 1080P 10X night vision zoom camera specially designed for DJI Matrice 200. This gimbal is developed based on DJI Skyport, which means it is seamlessly compatible with Matrice 200 drone: all gimbal functions can be controlled through DJI GO APP and controller, like Yaw/Pitch, zoom,…Continue
