Hello everyone! This is my first post to the site though I've been following for over a year. I'm finally to the point where I would like to begin purchasing equipment for my first Easy Star Drone.
Background: I have successfully built and flew my Blimpduido kit. I've also been flying around for a a couple months the Hobby Zone Champ (RTF). This has been the extent of my RC/Drone background though I have been playing around with Arduino on other projects for over a…Continue
A free tutorial on creating Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) from Photosynth point clouds is now available online. The tutorial focus on using mostly free and Open Source software to create detailed georeferenced 3D models from low altitude aerial photographs that have been processed in Structure from Motion (SfM) software like that…Continue
This program downloads precompiled firmware for the arducopter and automatically uploads it to APM. No need to install arduino, libraries etc.
Hopefully this program will make it easier for those of you who fly the arducopter, but don’t have an interest in…Continue

Here is the video of the JPO -AMA webinar on FAA sUAS rulemaking.
The Q&A portion of the webinar was not made available.
I have successfully built and tested in flight the Micro Multicopter based on a Minsoo Kim's quadcopter kit.
- hardware: KKmulticopter flight controller v0.2
- firmware: Quadcontroller v4.5 (asm code version can be downloaded here) by Rolf R Bakke.
- 4 brushless motors 925 KV FlyCam 925
- 4 ESC turnigy PLUSH-6
- 2 propellers…
UPDATE: Looks like some bugs snuck in. I've withdrawn this version. Please Dec 13 instead.
I've uploaded a…Continue
Well, here's the first photo of my quadcopter.
Weighing in at 590g as it sits, with a span of 25". I plan on adding some litening holes in the body plates and landing gear to reduce the weight a little.
Cutting the bolts will lose a few grams, but this is just a dry fit, so nothing's done as of yet with any permenance.
I plan on…Continue
We have been working on this copter for about 3 weeks. First one was made out of plywood and broke while maidening. (Actually never get in the air.) So we decided to build one using U shaped aluminum profiles.
Setup as follows :
4 Turnigy SK35-36 910kV with 2 12x6 hobbyking APC's and 2 12x6 reverse real…Continue
This is the FahPah "all up" kit, with an added XBee Tx and Futaba R6008HS.
Arducopter NG software, untouched except to enable XBee. No…Continue
GPS altitude hold is good for +-5m, but what if you want more precision than that, closer to the ground. ArduCopter team member Randy Mackay. He explains what it takes (this is also in the manual):

Arduino 0022 is now out. Mostly bug fixes and optimization. A few additions/improvements of interest to us:
