Fatshark Dominator FPV Goggles Review Fatshark Vision Systems' Dominators are the latest incarnation of FPV (first person view) goggles designed for full-immersion flying. The Dominators come as a complete package, with a built-in 5.8 or 2.4GHz receiver and matching transmitter. For expanded flying, a built-in head tracker allows you to turn your head and have the camera on the airplane mimmic your movements. In case you're not up to speed with the FPV movement, the idea is to use a small camera and transmitter attached to the airplane to send the video signal down to a receiver. From there, it's up to you on how you want to display the video. The Dominator goggles allow you to effectively pilot the airplane as if you were in the cockpit, without any distractions.
HXT Simple Lipoly Monitor 2S~3S. A must have for all lipo users! Excellent item, barely weighs 3 grams with leads to battery. I have found that if you remove the SMC resistor connected to the red LED, the LED is ALLOT more brighter. Before I removed the resistor it was a dull red when the voltage drops below 3.3V/per cell, now it can't be missed, either during day or night flight. I also found out that my charger was not balancing my cells properly and one cell would drain faster then the others, this item indicated that one cell was drained compared against the other cells. Save me from completely destroying my Lipo packs :-). One down side to this item is that it does not provide a way to determine voltage between 3.7-3.3V/per cell.
Building a palm size quad-copter & Introducing a new simple flight controller Build the frame: I cut the aluminum tubes down to 10" long. I guess I can cut it shorter, but let's see how this go. One arm is now cut by half. Fat Shark Predator Review - All in one for $270! Mini-Review Fat Shark Predator Review - All in one for $270!

Forum - AeroQuad - The Open Source Multicopter The AeroQuad is an open source hardware and software project dedicated to the construction of remote controlled four-rotor helicopters, also known as quadcopters or quadrocopters. The latest software also support additional multicopter configurations! Buy AeroQuad Parts HereDownload the AeroQuad Software AeroQuad hardware typically consists of the fully-featured STM32-based AeroQuad32 flight controller board or an Arduino microcontroller (Mega 2560 or Uno) as the flight controller board, and an AeroQuad shield with various sensors, such as an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer (heading), barometer (altitude hold) ultrasonic sensors and GPS.
Heavy-Duty Quadrocopter - Imperial College Robotics Society Wiki From Imperial College Robotics Society Wiki Imperial College Robotics Society ( ICRS ) is a student-led university club aiming to increase robotics interest at Imperial College London and across the UK. We run workshops, competitions and lectures to teach about robotics, electronics and software as well as providing help (financial and technical) to students looking to start a robotics project. We also run several robotics beginners courses and have also recently won the highly prestigious John Lever Memorial Award for our outstanding courses and robotics talks. DIY ARDUINO FLIGHT CONTROLLER As I started arduino 3 years ago I guess I've piled up some extra sensors such as the MPU6050 , BMP180, and the HMC5883L now getting frustrated of my old Flight controller for my quadcopter I decided to make my own similar to those of MULTIWII "CRIUS SE" So here are the main parts An Arduino mini.... or something similar like mine from our local electronics shop exclusive on in the Philippines I got these sensors for 22.31$ only!
3D Printed Quadrocopter - Imperial College Robotics Society Wiki From Imperial College Robotics Society Wiki Note: this has now been superseded by the Quadcopter v2 ! Our quadrocopter is totally custom with a chassis which was printed on our RepRap Mendel . The development process was particularly quick with just 2 weeks between conception and its maiden flight! Was also exhibited at the element14 stall in the UK Maker Faire 2011 .
