    Help! Multi rotor competition help

    Hello my name is Andres, I am building a quad copter that will weigh at most 5 pounds. It will need to fly a long way ( not sure but a mile? maybe more), but I am looking for efficient motors with a low amperage take so that the battery will last longer. I was planning to use a 2300Kv...

    Winter Sunset in the Moutains before a storm comes

    that was an absolute lucky shot, first because of high wind speed weather forecast I was thinking the day will be no flying but shortly before the day end I watched some nearby webcams and I a voice in my head said lets to it :) I should hear on my inner voice more often...

    Help! Could you please update parts list on the FT 210 Build Video?

    Hi, I'm student-pilot of real gliders and recently got into hobby of the FPV Drones. I have never build any RC vehicle myself so I immediately fell in love with the Build video of FT 210 due to it's accuracy - ease of build. There is one problem though and that is that the list of parts is no...

    Drone/Model Aircraft Parachute Feedback

    I am currently in an engineering class where me and my team need to come up with an idea and develop it through the engineering process. I am posting this to see how the people of this community would feel about our idea. So our teams idea is a parachute pack that can be attached to both drones...

    16-12-2018 Flying drones with my daughter

    All day I wanted to go fly my SpiTTT but couldn’t because I was at work. At least I had the fun to watch my daughter fly her brother’s drone for her very first time.

    Use the gyro to control the ESCs in Betaflight

    Hi everyone, I am working on a free falling drone that could orient it self mid air using reaction wheels instead of propellers (this is my second post about it here) and I got some good advice to use a pre-made flight controller. So I just bought a Lumenier F4 AIO board with some ESCs and...

    Using a IMU flight controller to control the orientation of a free falling robot

    Hey everyone! I am working on a project to build a robot that could control it's orientation while being thrown into the air (the robot is a small cube). The robot uses 3 reaction wheels to orient it's self mid-air. I am currently using a IMU and a Raspberry Pi 3 to process data and control the...

    Paid drone assembly

    Hello, I'm looking for a drone hardware store with some knowledgeable and handy technical people that will assemble a Betaflight drone from the parts that they sell. I will then need to be able to write a program that will control flight of the drone, and do some things in the air (be able to...

    Minor crash and now my quad gets no input.

    So I powerlooped on an extremely flat battery (stupid) and couldn't pull out, so I plopped down relatively lightly in the grass. I didn't lose telemetry (lua, voltage, ex.), but the fc is getting no sbus signal. Connections are all good. I tried a different receiver, no luck. I also tried to...

    I'm Going Under (water)

    Not sure where to post this. Maybe better off on the Flotetest forum, but I guess scratch building is technically correct. I was thinking about ocean kayaking the other day (as you do), and had an idea. I am a recreational fisherman, and have always wondered what I could see under the surface...

    Experimental Arduino RC Plane Build Log

    Hey guys, I'm using this thread as a sort of build log for my next Arduino airplane. I've been working with UAV avionics as a hobbyist, intern, and university researcher for about 2 years now. This will be the first plane, though, that I will lay out exactly how all the systems come together...

    Landing a Rocket Vertically, without Being a Billionaire

    Hi there, I've built and tested a prototype of the Rocket Drone (I'm currently patenting), equipped with a "hybrid" motor/engine. This could be an interesting way of retrieving the model rockets (water or pyro), without using the parachute. Please take a look at it and let me know your opinion...
