UAV Electric Propulsion System Survey

Greetings everyone,

We at Zubax Robotics conduct research, design, and manufacturing of highly energy-efficient motor controllers and integrated drives for aerospace applications. One of our primary goals is to deliver better motor controllers for the UAV industry. To advance our research, we created a survey that will help us capture some of the…

Evaluating the efficiency of a sensorless propeller drive using UAVCAN GUI Tool

So we were testing certain stuff in our lab yesterday, and I thought, why don't we share our approach? That would be such a great way to show off the capabilities of the UAVCAN GUI Tool. Check this out:

The video features the following products and instruments:…

PX4 Sapog and friends

Quite some time has passed since our last post on the topic, so it's time to make another one.


For those uninitiated, PX4 Sapog is an open source ESC design which you can get familiar with right here: kb.zubax.com/x/cYAh. Over the last months, the following noteworthy things happened to the project:

  • Proper…

PX4 Sapog, Zubax Orel, Zubax GNSS 2 status update

This post announces recent noteworthy developments in some of our projects.

The observations we made since the announcement of Zubax Orel 20 (a Sapog-driven ESC) led us to believe that people tend to have serious misconceptions about power capabilities of ESC. A possible reason for that is the abundance of Chinese low-quality ESC that tend to have…

UAVCAN status update

Greetings, my fellow humans.

In this update I will briefly review the current state and the near future of UAVCAN. For those unfamiliar, UAVCAN is a lightweight CAN bus protocol designed for reliable communication in aerospace and robotic applications. It aims to provide standardized and unified communications at the application level by means of defining a fixed set of…

PX4 Sapog - advanced open source ESC from the PX4 team

Hi everyone,

A part of the PX4 team has been working on an open source ESC since late 2013. The objectives we had in mind were roughly as follows:

  • BSD licensed codebase.
  • CAN bus interface (using UAVCAN as a high level protocol), with specific sub-goals:
    • low latency;
    • ESC status…
