UAV/UAS University Design Project

11 hours agoHobbies / Drones : DIY Drones

Hello fellow aviators, I am part of an undergraduate team of Aerospace Engineers at Oklahoma State University. We have spent all semester doing research on and designing low RCS target drones to help train our Military. This weekend is our final capstone competition. A portion of the scoring metric is Facebook "likes" on our team's marketing…

Fly With A Single Rotary Controller - FlightZoomer 3 Feature Preview

17 hours agoHobbies / Drones : DIY Drones

When Microsoft announced the Surface Dial last October, I immediately knew, that no better application could be developed for this controller than controlling the flight path of drones. For weeks I checked availability in Europe, only to order an overpriced device from the US Ebay finally. As it arrived I probably got one…

Update

20 hours agoHobbies / Drones : DIY Drones

The design is almost complete so thought I would share it. The remaining part is the connection between booms and the chassis, which needs to be strong and provide vibration resistance.  All I've come up with so far is a 'rubber grommet sandwich' with M4 bolts/washers etc,…

Comparing Precision of Autopilots for Survey Missions - DJI Inspire 1

We have reached the seventh week in our autopilot precision series. In this series we test different drones and autopilots by flying them on a simple photogrammetry route created in UgCS. So far we have tested quite a few drones, including DJI Phantom 4 and 3, DJI Naza-M V2, Mikrokopter Quad XL,…

Tutorial: Integrating Deep Learning Applications With FlytOS on Nvidia TX1 (Part 1/2)

Commercial drone applications require significant autonomy and intelligence which cannot be achieved using conventional Computer Vision algorithms. Deep Learning/Vision algorithms seem to be very promising in helping drones to be used in more advanced…

Frame design.

2 days agoHobbies / Drones : DIY Drones

I've been experimenting with frame design, an essential component to keep all the parts flying in formation. I printed some interlocking plastic parts in 2mm PLA & super glued them together to see how rigid/strong the end result. The attached pic shows about half the…

Robotized Radiation Mapping

3 days agoHobbies / Drones : DIY Drones

Dear community members, This is very preliminary work on aerial robotic radiation detection in real-time and in a GPS-denied manner. The robot localizes based on visual-inertial data and integrates a deferentially installed 2-radiation detectors solution to exploit their polarity characteristics. Most of the research is ahead but we…

Skyhunter Pixhawk 3.7.1 parameters and configuration

3 days agoHobbies / Drones : DIY Drones

After a great deal of difficulty and trial/error I have finally got my skyhunter setup and working with the pixhawk running ardupilot 3.7.1. The most difficult part was the configuration of the servos being that this fixed wing plane has two aileron servos, an elevator servo and no rudder. Show More Summary

Looking for challenge

5 days agoHobbies / Drones : DIY Drones

Hi, after finishing my last project, I'm ready for the next challenge. However,  right now I can't afford to start another project and buy components for development, although I'd have ideas of course. So I'd like to offer my experiences in 3D modelling, printing and basic programming skills for some…
