Let's Make Robots!

My UAV. Done... it flies autonomous!!! this is awesome!!!

flies autonomous on programed misions

This is my new proyect, inspired by Jad Berro´s UAV, i started to plan my own....


i began to work on the airplane, it was a broken trainer that i have got from a friend....

List of electronic equipment:


Shield with airspeed sensor.

Ardu IMU.

Xbee tx.

Xbee Rx.




Video transmiter.


Electric motor.

Lipo Batery.

Lots of cable.


i need to know how i am going to make the tail, V shape or inverted V...




It is ready for the first test fly, i hope this sunday y will post a video ot it......


Have allready installed the pushrods and controll horns, installed the receiver and programmed the radio.....


now i am going to install another servo to move the camera (tilt).......


too much things on something that will fly!!!!

a friend sent me the video googles YEEEEAAAAA!!!!!

tomorrow some pics testing the googles........ i can´t wait untill the video Tx system arrives!!!!!!!!!


too much things on something that will fly!!!!

i made yesterday a pan and tilt system (self designed) for my camera, (have i said that i found a second hand futaba 9z????) now i can control my camera from the radio.........


so......... the only thing broken (besides monokote and balsa wood) was the micro servo on the back on the camera...


this has to be my crash number 564 or the 565, lost my count...... jajajajajajajajajajajaja :-)

Was it a "Rise of the Machines" situation where the robot fought you?    or was it the added weight of all the new gadgets causing an unexpected stall?

either way, sorry for your loss.

Are you going to make your UAV II ? Sorry for the crush

no......... no problem with the added weight and, no, there is going to be called UAV 1.1 jejejejejejejeje easy to repair my friends....


hello people, my UAV is almost ready to take off...... i redesigned the tail for better practicity!!!!!!!!!!!



hello people, maybe i am going to fly tomorrow to test thE ON SCREEN DISPLAY and the autopilot....

The new one is awsome ! Reminds me of the RQ-11 raven ! :)

Amazing work on the body !

Oh man, that live TV is just freakin AWESOME!

And it flies, congratuvery lations!! Also, UAV, yer!

If you can make the camera look around and wear a helmet that controls where it looks, then your life is complete and you might as well just die, because you have done it all!

Dam, I would love to try and fly that thing with the camera :D


Don't die just yet... http://www.xheli.com/aepivifiviwh.html

Excellent job on the UAV, I'm inspired :)

Well I think you can try fly it, with a couple of xbee modules and a little  programming you can control it through

ustream's irc chat room and simultaneously control a pan-tilt mechanism with the camera on it but I think would be difficult to type so  fast to keep with the pace the uav flies.

To avoid a colision ,a function can be added  to handle such situations something like auto pilot.
