Nearly five decades before the Wright Flyer made its first flight, Henri Giffard had flown 24 km in France with his steam-engine powered airship. Since then airships have risen to its ultimate glory and have also seen a vicious downfall. The end of 20th century has rekindled interest in airship…Continue

Sky Eye-U30 gyro-stabilized camera payload can be mounted on any fixed-wing or VTOL Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. It combines cutting-edge technologies in lightweight, affordable,…Continue
The anti-drone market is segmented on the basis of technology into electronics system, laser system, and kinetic system. Among these technologies, the market for…Continue
How cool would it be if we could control our drone just with our wrist movements.
I have used 2 Primus X boards in this project. One PrimusX is mounted on the drone while the second one is used to mount it on our wrist.
Now to control the drone with just the wrist movements all we have to do is map the values…Continue

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
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…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…

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
