I can't get enough of this platform
The aircraft is Aerovel’s 20-kg Flexrotor, which combines VTOL and small footprint with Hawaii-to-West Coast range. The carrier is a 4-metre skiff equipped to launch, retrieve, and service…Continue
Google recommended this video & it's relevant to the RC hobby drone industry VR goggle…
I have a TBS Discovery for some time now, very good quad.
But when I saw arriving Discovery Pro I said I want it!
I almost had a heart attack.
So I decided to custom mine.
I had to…Continue
This week I conducted the Raptor 140's flight testing. I put it through the paces by testing it's general maneuverability (pitch and roll), high maneuverability (rolls, loops, climbs), its speed performance (cruise, max, stall) and it's technology performance (video, telemetry, GPS, compass, autonomous flight, etc).
It passed all its…Continue
Using a FrSKY Taranis X9D, we have been mixing different switches and testing 7 flight modes. RTL on a one-switch return home and 6 other flight modes. We have included our video logs of how we set it up. You can use any switches following our…Continue
Here is a video from an arducopter hexa of some walking trail in Maple Ridge, BC, Canada. Video and production need a lot of work as well as smoothing out the video itself but had to start somewhere.

The pilot of the Phantom that crashed on a Manhattan street earlier this month has been arrested, ABC reports:
David Zablidowsky of Brooklyn has been charged with "Reckless Endangerment" for allegedly losing control of a helicopter drone at "an unreasonable height creating a substantial risk of serious physical…
In my previous quad project I had already found a cheap, simple solution for creating a diy motor mount that reduces vibration. Now I adapted it for my current Y6 project. The only difference lies in the fact that the quad had square arms and the Y6 round arms. For those who might be interested, I have created a small …Continue
Definitely file this one under "silly", but it's a toy copter launched with blink of some sort of electrical false eyelash controller. I just wish they wouldn't call every flying toy a "drone".

Qualcomm Zeroth processor to not only mimic human-like perception but also have the ability to learn how biological brains do.
This might be the powerful new tool for drones development in the next few years. Just imagine what possibilities it gives.
We have a lot of switches on our radio (or tablet). It would be amazing, to use one as a "good drone"…Continue
Cool article from the open access scientific journal PLOS One
We've been experimenting more and more with tablet ground stations here at Event 38 and have had a lot of success using the DroidPlanner app. The software has been working well for us but we found our ground station setup was really cluttered, the…Continue
For all of you interested, who live in or around Mexico City. The Research and Advanced Studies Center (CINVESTAV in spanish) of the National Polytechnic Institute just announced this.

You all might remember my integrated groundstation project, which I started earlier this year. Based on this project, I started integrating flight instruments from Dutch manufacturer Flight Illusion.…Continue
