The Laboratory of Unmanned aerial vehicles (Labdron) located in the Engineering School of Extremadura University (Badajoz, Spain) have started novel activities to introduce our engineering students in the UAV environment.
We have prepared courses to explain how to program UAVs and we have planned some seminars to…
In recent years, multi-rotor aerodynamic aircraft have been widely used in consumer UAVs and some special industries. Mention of hovering aircraft, the first thing we have in mind is multi-rotor, which ignoring the potential of other hovering aerodynamic configurations. There is no…Continue

From Ars Technica. I played with ion drives a long time ago, but never got anything this large to lift. Great work!
The Johnson Indoor Track at MIT probably won't go down in history in the same way as…Continue
Looking around for an inexpensive, almost-ready-to-fly brushless-motor quadcopter to use a basis for indoor flight-control research, I was delighted to come across the Altair Aerial Blackhawk. With its extra-long extension legs and GoPro mount (which I…Continue
This week the 5th Commercial UAV Show took place at ExCel in London, United Kingdom. While exhibiting there I also took a camera and walked around - if you missed the event you still have a chance to watch how it went. Enjoy!

I interviewed Caleb Bergquist, a developer like us who posted a complete video course online about:
- Setting up the developer environment
- Mavproxy and Qground Control
Well, the day finally has come when I am ready to give up on this endeavor. My goal was to build a manned, internal combustion quad copter. I will not say the project was a failure because I learned so much on my journey, but I just see other avenues which seem more promising.
Of note, from the project I did successfully build a variable pitch,…Continue
One of the most difficult risks to manage with all sUAS flight operations, and in fact with most remote-controlled vehicle systems is radio interference. Detecting the threat and evading it is almost impossible without proper RF instrumentation, namely a decent spectrum analyser. It's not something even developers are taking to the field too frequently, not…Continue
At the end of this new DeltaQuad compilation video, you can see the 3D rendering that was created from a survey mission of a dutch peninsula. The mission was flown using a DeltaQuad Pro #MAP carrying a Sony A7R3 with a 35mm lens.…Continue

Pretty much everyone these days knows that some companies can launch thousands of drones in the air and perform a breathtaking show with light and moving animation. This is an incredible piece of engineering, but in attempt to do something similar one should consider technological, personnel and logistical…Continue

Multi-chart and multi-scale features implemented to DRONEE PLOTTER. Now you can visualize multiple log attributes on multiple charts, zoom to the time frame synchronously. Also, you can visualize multiple scale data on the same…Continue
The ideas have no value, the important thing is the execution....
A few years ago, I came up with a solution to move loads with drones efficiently,
which consisted in articulating the arms of the drone, as the load moved out of this...
This in order to keep the thrust center aligned with the center of mass.
I gave much…Continue
Copter-3.6.0 has been released as the default version for Multicopters and Traditional Helicopters.

Today FlightZoomer Cockpit 3.1 has been released (in the MS store the name is still FlightZoomer Cockpit 3). The app offers a number of nice improvements over the big version 3 release from August.
The most notable one are interactive checklists, which are demonstrated in this video:
This features supports entirely…Continue
