Every now and then a new blog post or forum thread pops up something along the lines of "Be careful, I got cut by the propeller ..." with ugly images attached.
UAVs are complex solutions and can be dangerous. The technology itself can help prevent accidents but eventually in most cases it boils down to human errors. I have fond memories sitting…Continue
Training Cambodian researcher and wildlife workers near Pu Trom
We have been busy developing and building ArduPilot Mega based UAV's for conservation and economical research the last couple of months together with our friends from ConservationDrones.org.
The goal is to provide an easy to use, durable, field fixable and affordable solution that can be operated in nearly any environment. Currently our UAV has been…Continue
ResearchDrones and ConservationDrones recently went to Scotland to examine the potential of using drones for the conservation work of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. The team went to the amazingly beautiful Caerlaverock wetland area to obtain images and footage of the wildlife and vegetation in the…Continue
I just discovered a nice online service where you can share your circuit design. Eagle and Kicad files are accepted. From the Website:

Features include full zooming capability, panning, and even mouse over tips about symbols in the schematic.
It sure beats a blurry screenshot or a giant PDF!
Sign-up and get your circuit…
