We are in the process of making some significant changes to our site layout and content to improve the overall ease-of-use experience here at DIY Drones.

As part of that effort, we wanted to put out the first section of the site that is ready for community-wide peer review.  You can see the updates at:


We need to add the footer, and a few other small things, but we want your input!

Please take a look through the site and the wiki, and submit your feedback to:


We'll do our best to keep up with the comments here, but using the address above will definitely get noticed.

Thank you!

Looks great so far, great work!

Nice to see that an open source company is also using other open source projects too like word press  spree :-D

I was just wondering why do only some of the places have a comment section to ask questions?

So far so good , keep going...

Please understand that more images are coming and some of the deeper sections haven't gotten a streamlining re-write yet. We were able to remove thousands of words, and hopefully keep all the information intact.

The goal is for this to be a solid foundation, while still leaving a bloody-edge for everyone to graft with.

A wiki is never done!

The comments will be closed, there will be an open forum and we'll add wiki section so all the wiki/support discussion will be there.

Looks pretty good!

But uh... any plans to add all the TradHeli stuff to the wiki?

Comment by Joshua Ott on February 28, 2013 at 5:11pm

That's where you (et.al.) come in Robert

; )

Really nice work! However, the layout doesn't work on iOS (at least on iPhone 5 with latest firmware)

Comment by Dany Thivierge on February 28, 2013 at 6:40pm

would be nice to still link to the "other" frames... Is this to be 3DR specific?  I really liked it when we could also get the jDrones stuff instructions.  Makes it a nice one stop for all.  

Comment by Gary McCray on February 28, 2013 at 7:23pm

What they have inserted so far looks good, but it is very 3DR specific.

And so far from what I can see 3DR has exclusive access.

If it is going to essentially be a 3DR support site editable only by 3DR or 3DR chosen personnel then it is a manual not a Wiki.

Still it is very early days and there is no clear intention of this at all, just lacking additional information.

Thanks I put a reminder at the top of "Setup". I'll put together a page of resources


That's just a temporary condition, it will be accesible just like any wiki. It's focused on the APM 2.5, but all the other info is still there. The idea is to make easy to use whether going fast or slow. Get the basics nailed in the beginning, and all the really nerdy stuff is deeper in. 

Think of the first hand-full of pages as a User Manual that answers %90 of the questions, and then the wiki comes after that.
