    Aerial Mapping with Quadcopters and Drones

    Published on Jan 21, 2015

    In the quadcopter space, Parrot may be best known for its AR.Drone and mini quads, but they're also behind two initiatives to use unmanned vehicles for aerial mapping. SenseFly and Pix4D are two departments making those vehicles and the 3D mapping software, and we learn about their latest quad at this year's CES.

    "Drone Fight", Mark Martino, 2015, USA

    Published on Feb 11, 2015

    DRONE FIGHT is a high tech action comedy about two drones whose companies pit them against each other as a publicity stunt. Will they fight to the death or wise up?

    This animation is a pre-visualization of the live action feature length movie. The animation was created to explore a few of the action sequences. The screenplay for the full length feature, which has quite a bit more humor and action, was written by Mark F. Martino and is available for interested producers.

    How to Launch a Quadrotor

    Published on Mar 30, 2015

    We demonstrate a new method to automatically recover and stabilize a drone from any initial condition, without GPS. On the one hand, this new technology will allow drones to be launched by simply tossing them in the air, like a “baseball”. On the other hand, it will make drones much safer since they can recover stable flight after a system failure. This is crucial for commercial use of drones, such as parcel delivery.

    Our quadrotor is equipped with a single camera, an inertial measurement unit, and a distance sensor (Teraranger One). Since we use only onboard sensors and no GPS, the method works both indoors and outdoors.

    RFTC: Oregon Senate Bill 71 Bans FPV Flying and Other "Drones"

    Published on Feb 4, 2013

    In this emergency webcast, the Roswell Flight Test Crew alerts the community about Oregon Senate Bill 71, which seeks to regulate "drones," but which would criminalize all FPV flying -- and potentially all model aviation -- including consumer products like the Parrot AR Drone. This bill could damage Oregon's economic recovery by reducing sales at hobby shops, forcing manufacturers that produce drone aircraft for the United States military to shut down, as well as undermining the state's efforts to be selected as one of six drone test areas by the Federal Aviation Administration. It would also violate the constitutional rights of people who already own FPV systems, by making it a crime merely to possess such systems, without due process of law and in violation of their basic property rights.

    Eagle Kills Drone

    Published on May 25, 2014

    RMIT UAS Research team dogfights with the king of the skies, where nature exhibits aerial supremacy over drones!

    The attacked Micro-Air-Vehicle airframe (Alula) was kindly donated by Dream-Flight for Research purposes. It was instrumented with an autopilot programmed to autonomously slope soar.

    Many times have birds attacked micro-sized aircraft, but rarely carried away as prey!
