After a few months of work, the first prototype is ready. In the video, we show some moments of construction and testing.
The propulsion system worked better than we expected, now we are focusing on a new generator that will allow staying in the air with 150 grams of fuel per hour (that's awesome if you think the weight at take-off is 5…Continue
Here is a great wood quadcopter project made with Pixhawk. The top speed is over 60mph and flies for 15 - 25 minutes depending on 4s or 6s batteries. It is able to lift 15lbs with reliability and tolerates crashes very well. Enjoy the test footage.
Future tests are planned but the…Continue
My colleague and I received a lot of help from the DIYDrones community two years ago when we launched the Series 1580 with our company RCbenchmark. We had just finished our masters in robotics. After a lot of work, we are now releasing the Series 1780, a dyno to test motors and propellers producing up to 25 kgf of thrust.
In this month I've worked on my generator, it is composed of a brushless motor, a glow one and a diode bridge rectifier, as you can see in pictureContinue
Hi guys, there is my video test showing my first flight time test with my cargo drone, I get 50 minutes with a 3s 5.2 Ah, if you want to stay tuned about the project sign up the newsletter http://eepurl.com/cUJnJr or just take a look to my site …Continue
Today I've made a new test of 3KG payload drone, I'm working on a cargo drone since 2015 so this is a great result for me, I'm also working on autonomous flight system for my drone there is the newsletter of the project: http://eepurl.com/cUJnJr
and here is the site:…
In these days, while waiting for the waypoint navigation hardware, I'm working on the new frame for my cargo drone, and on the new box, I'm also planning for 4KG PAYLOAD test, after the first of 2kg, I've now got 580kv motors so I have better a thrust, if you want to stay informed on this project please subscribe to the newsletter: http://eepurl.com/cUJnJr or take a look at my site: …Continue
Hi guys, in these days I made a successful payload test of my cargo drone (it's just a few seconds but it demonstrates that we can do it). Another news is that I'm working on the cargo box so I changed it with a more resistant one and now I'm working on the navigation system (based on waypoints).

Hi this is my little cargo drone, it can lift about 2000g and the maximum flight time is about 50 minutes, I also have a site so if you want just click the link, take a look and subscribe to the newsletter https://www.sandwichdrones.it/ …Continue
Before choosing the best esc for quadcopter or FPV, you should know some ESC knowledges (Type, Firmware and Key parameters) as below.
A Brushed Motor has a rotating set of wound wire coils which acts as an electromagnet with two poles.
A Brushless Motor uses a permanent…Continue
Flight controllers tend to be aimed at different types of flying style: Cinema Flying, Sport Flying and Autonomous Flying. At the same time, there is a massive number of flight controller brands in the market, so it's hard to know which is best. Today I will give some perspective on that.
Pixhawk PX4 :Integrating…Continue
In this project, I will go through the process of designing and making a flight controller board from scratch for a micro-quadcopter. This board will be based on the ATMega328 microcontroller and will be used to control four coreless DC motors. The whole PCB making process…Continue

This video shows the maiden flight of my new brushed quadrotor, a “totally DIY" project using my own C++
firmware (Multiwii clone with hardware abstraction), 3DFly
3D-printed frame, and, best of all, a 32-bit brushed-motor…
There is no doubt DJI dominates the high-end camera drone market and many dealers are gaining great profit with DJI products.They provide superior…Continue
Hello, I would like to show you my recent project with official name:
Quadcopters are flying drones with a highly constrained payload capacity, limited computation power as well as communication capabilities. Such quadcopters can be equipped with a low…Continue
One of the printers we use for prototyping / manufacturing. This is the BIGREP ONE, the most advanced big FFF printer!
We are using bionic structure to make the Arrow Drone stable…Continue
If you don’t already have your “go-to” mobile app for no-fly zones, flight logs, news, or weather, I encourage you to check out Hover. Available for free on iOS and Android, it provides all the tools you need to navigate…Continue
Here's a video from one of our recent tests of our GTQ-Cormorant: a submarine and quadrotor hybrid.
We use an air pump/solenoid system to move air between the clear, water-tight pressure hull and an external air bladder for depth…Continue
