It has been little over a week since we opened the Guide and the response from the DIY Drones community has been very positive, thank you all!

Based on the feedback, this is the content we have added for this week:

PID Controllers Demystified:  What is a PID controller?  How do PID controllers work?  How does each tuning constant affect the response?  How can I practice PID tuning?

Understanding Transmitters:  What types of transmitters are there?  What does each transmitter setting do?  Which are the most popular transmitters on the market and how do they compare?

Plus, we have created a poll where you can vote for future articles.

Stay tuned, we'll continue adding new articles periodically.  Announcements will be made on blog posts like this, and through Facebook, Twitter, and RSS.

Contact us if you have any comments or questions, or if there is content you’d like to see in the future.  And if you find the information useful, please spread the word!

Until next time,
-The UAV Guide Team
