I am glad to publish the following release by SPH Engineering. Click on the image below to visit their web site:
Also check out this video, in which the software is used together with 3D Robotics multirotors:
SPH Engineering is pleased to announce that UgCS is now out of Beta stage and is available for purchase.
Our work for nearly two years have resulted in UgCS version 2.1 Which now we have tested to be exceeding or having abilities at least on par with native mission planning software of supported vehicles.
Currently we support vehicles equipped with following autopilots: MikroKopter, Ardupilot APM/Pixhawk, DJI Naza-M(Phantom 2)/Wookong-M/A2, ARDrone, Microdrones. Our skilled engineers can add support to additional autopilot by request in less than 3 months including field tests. Continue reading →
Yesterday was a nice day out flying with the quadlugs 480mm, equipped with an SJ4000 camera, Immersion RC transmitter and Skylark OSD. It really adds another dimension to be able to know in real time, from the OSD, the GPS position, time of flight, battery voltage, altitude. All this information provides a different level of control while flying the quad.
I found particularly valuable to know how hight and how far from me the quad was, exactly.
I’d like to share a couple of shots of the quad here. A usual, you can click on the pictures to access the full sizes (which sometimes take a while to load, thanks for your patience )
We are officially launching the Skysense Charging Pad, a remote-controlled charger for drones that fixes the last mile of drones automation by allowing you to manage flights remotely and deploy fully autonomous missions: Continue reading →
In this post, just a little photogallery with images of the AcroNaze32 flight control board. I ordered a few during the last months and each time they came into different colors (red, black, the last batch was white). Actually the white board on the photos below is the full Naze32 version with barometer rather than the Acro version.
A Serbia-Albania football match was stopped when a DJI Phantom appeared carrying an Albania flag. A player manages to catch the flag and apparently (not fully clear from the video) take down the phantom.
I’m thrilled to announce our partnership with the Linux Foundation to create the new Dronecode Foundation, a non-profit organization that brings together the leading open source UAV software projects under the professional management and leadership of one of the world’s foremost open innovation organizations.

Quentin Daems, creator of the FlyXcopter series of quadcopter frames, sent me a FlyX-Mini frame for review purposes. In this post I’d like to report the details of the build I made with this frame and my impressions on the frame itself.
To visit the official FlyXcopter website click on the logo below.
Let me start from the end and show you the final product after a few days of work and testing of this nice flying machine. Throughout this review you can always click on the images to access the full size.
If you are not familiar with this model already, you can see from the picture above that the little bird definitely has character. It has a distinctive look that sets it apart from the countless clones of the Blackout mini H quad or QAV250 that can be bought from chinese sellers for very low prices these days. Continue reading →
