Getting Your First Pair of Drone Goggles

The Worlds First Drone Jump

The Worlds First Drone Jump

Watch as a 28-rotor drone lifts a man about 1,000 feet in the air before he lets go and skydives down to earth.  While this is obviously a stuntman doing this, it does show how drones could be used for rescue operations or quick placement of a person in an area they are needed. ABC […]

Aerial rebels with a cause

Raphael Pirker and Team BlackSheep Back in 2003, first-person view (FPV) was little more than a half-baked idea in the mind of a young Swiss- Austrian student studying at the University of Zurich.

Your Guide to FPV Antennas

Your Guide to FPV Antennas

Welcome to the wonderful world of antennas, its language and culture; to the aperture family (effective and scattering), the lobe family (main, side, back, and grating); to beam widths, directivity, and gain. Antennas are three-dimensional and live in a world of beam area, steradians, square degrees, and solid angle. Antennas have impedances (self and mutual). […]
