From the 3DR blog:
Comprehensive GoPro control has arrived in the Solo App! In addition to other feature improvements, version 1.3 brings you in-flight access to GoPro camera settings. In the last release (1.2.1) you got the ability to toggle between…
Nothing too groundbreaking here other than the post production treatment. Just a really fun use of quadcopters and sound effects for the holiday weekend. A little stabilization and post work can go a long way on some GoPro footage. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Hi All. We wanted to share a useful tool for those creating drone maps and 3D models. We've just launched a free tier, made for the DIY community, enabling you to upload any exif-tagged drone imagery and get back high resolution data. It's simple - just upload and forget.
We've actually processed a lot of data (1 Million acres!) over the last couple of…Continue
For the fun of it we made an Android app allowing a sender phone and a receiver phone to act as a remote control. The reciever phone is connected to a Polulo Maestro servo card with Usb Host.
It work pretty fine actually.
We use some nice piece of communication software (from another project) enabeling mobilphones to communicate peer to peer…Continue
There are plenty of…Continue
Multirotors are underactuated, thus controlling interaction with the environment such as aerial manipulation has some problems. However, although these problem can be addressed using multi-DOF actuators or some novel control techniques, multirotors suffer from short flight time and limited…Continue
The Quanum i8 Radio was developed specifically for APM/PixHawk users. The dial has pre-set PWM positions that can be assigned by the user via Mission Planner software. Along with 2 sliders for gimbal control and 8 channels in total the Quanum i8 is a groundbreaking radio and the first radio system in the market developed specifically for Ardupilot users. The included receiver is also…
I want to share my experience with 3d modelling an archaeological structure called "Midas Monument" located at Yazılıkaya, Turkey. It was relatively an easy task, if you have right hardware and software. And I want to thank to dronmarket.com for…
Having received many positive emails about my Extended Kalman Filter Tutorial, I wanted to see whether I could write my own general-purpose EKF from scratch, suitable for running on a microcontroller like Arduino, Teensy, and the STM32 platform used on today's popular flight controllers (Pixhawk, Naze, CC3D). I…Continue

I want to share with you the tremendous fun I'm having with the BBBmini DIY ArduPilot project, which I discovered during the summer. Hopefully, I can demonstrate what a sexy DIY Linux Autopilot for around 100 bucks looks like and convince you why Linux autopilots are cooler than a cat playing the piano.
For some background, …

I've been experimenting with putting 360 degree vision, including stereo vision, onto a Crazyflie nano quadrotor to assist with flight in near-Earth and indoor environments. Four stereo boards, each holding two image sensor chips and lenses, together see in all directions except up and down. We developed the image sensor chips…Continue
The UAV Challenge Technical Committee today announced that the venue for the 2016 UAV Challenge Medical Express competition will be Dalby, Queensland, Australia. The Base for the event will be the Dalby Model Aero Club (DMAC). A rules update was also launched today, with Version 2 of the rules now available on the Medical Express Page. A…
For those that would like to turn their soon-to-be-purchased Bebop 2's into robots, PaparazziUAV now runs on the Bebop 2. More details in this post: Parrot Bebop 2…Continue
Our goal is to overcome the endurance limitations of an electric multicopter, while keeping the multirotor platform we are so enthusiastic about. This VTOL UAV has 2.5 hr estimated flight time with payload, and around 4 hours endurance…Continue
