Open source amateur UAVs podcast @ robots.net

The latest episode of the Robots Podcast interviews Chris Anderson, the founder of the largest amateur UAV community and one of the largest robotics communities, DIY Drones and Editor-in-chief of WIRED. As some of you may know from some previous posts, DIY Drones is behind the well-known Arduino clone ArduPilot which allows easy autonomous stabilization and navigation of UAVs. DIY Drones is also a major proponent of open source hardware. For more information on making flying robots, the risks of putting this technology into the wrong hands and some crazy anecdotes read on or tune in(mp3)!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Why does every lame “drone” picture
    show the “Predator” ? How about the
    much more capable (and bigger payload
    capacity) “Global Hawk” ?
