Ok, so Big Footing is not exactly "Main Stream", but IMO, this is a great example of how we can enjoy our hobby while helping others explore theirs. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of details on the drone or UAS Operations but it's a positive example none the less. I live in Northern California, and want to take my drones on a BFRO…Continue
The items shown above are part of a 5.8GHz video transmitter (#5) setup offered by Range Video. All items are sold as individual items and like a big dummy I forgot to get Santa Clause order their powersupply (#4) when she placed her order for the transmitter.
So the luck of the Irish kicks in and Mr. Murphy ordered their last Filtered Linear Power Supply and there's no telling when they…Continue

So I finally got to do some testing without crazy winds, then THIS happens!
Oh well, it could have been very bad, but I was lucky and did not have any major issues.
I have some repairs to do, but in reality I was thinking of doing the mod I NEED to do now anyway, so... NBD!
That dark spot…Continue

My ArduPilot Trials Day 2
I started off the day very excited to see how a new day of testing would go. I'd re-read portions of the manual, searched for ArduPilot tuning posts and contemplated the replies I got from my previous post.
The conditions were great…
Hello DIY Droners.
Please allow me to introduce the "DIY Drones Projects" Google docs spreadsheet.
Many DIY Drones members would…Continue
I recently purchased 6 batts from HobbyCity.com and selected the USA Warehouse for shipping. That was Wednesday the 23rd, it's Friday the 25th and they are on my desk. I selected the USPS shipping option 2/3 day for less than $1.50 over the default shipping cost, bringing the cost…Continue
I found the Fuse to a Sky Fly Max at a local hobby store and was instantly forced to buy it. It's a great, but simple starter plane which I think will make a great UAV. All of the parts except for the fiberglass boom are EPO type foam, all thick and well made. Like always, I will not buy an RTF so I'll need to part it together, but that should be less than $65. for just the air frame. I have a few ideas to make it more me, but that's for…Continue
I stumbled upon this and thought others may think it's interesting as well...
Who knew the SP guys had competitions where they race around a triangle pattern of GPS coordinates? View results on Google Earth, get addional details from the plane to the ground station... Lots more.
