Tools for the DIY enthusiast have evolved quite a lot over the past century, evolving from a simple set of hand tools to the sophisticated 3D printers seen today. If we look back just a few years, the MakerBot Thing-O-Matic was quite revolutionary in the industry, though still quite hard to use. MakerBot has since releases a lot of new (and better) 3D printers, but other companies have been growing and releasing their own 3D printer products which bring additional features and improvements to the market.

Eric Nantel I have been working for years in Industrial Automation and building the DiaLFonZo-Copter UAV/Drones name on my own, making the move to RobotShop seems like the next step. Now enjoying the fusion of my hobbies and day work all in one.
We have been entering a very cool new UAVs / Drone product from Pleiades called “Spiri” and their technical art director Caroline Glass prepared a Blog post for us to talk about the project. It’s a very interesting platform that will push the industry toward the more “robotic” side of UAVs & Drones. […]
This post explains the different steps necessary to use a MultiWii compatible board for two axis servo-based stabilization. Many people try to make projects that require stabilization and don’t really want to have to worry about programming; fortunately MultiWii comes to the rescue and helps you get this done fast and even at a low […]
Hi All, Yesterday one of our RobotShop Forum members “osfreak” posted a video of a Dell commercial which used Lynxmotion products. If you look closely starting at about 0.16s you can spot an SQ3 Quadruped walking Kit and parts included in the AL5 Robotic Arms. On top of that, you will see the Crazy2Fly Drone that takes-off in the room. […]
After being in the shadow of the VTail’s UAV platforms, the Crazy2Fly is ready to take the place it deserves. With its easier to understand (and set up) Quad X (or +) configuration, you will be in air in no time. As the video shows, this baby is more than capable when it comes […]
Hi All, We are proud to show you our latest Mini Quadcopter, the Hubsan FPV Mini Quadcopter. It is a little drone packed with a lot of nice features, including: • Latest 6-axis flight control system with adjustable gyro sensitivity • Permits super stable flight • Lightweight airframe with good durability • Instant / continuous video […]
A few months ago, Eric Pinkel contacted RobotShop/Lynxmotion and myself asking if we wanted to be a consultant for their big VTail Medusa project. Very interested and amazed by the work already done by Eric and his team, we immediately stepped in to help whenever they needed it. As a UAV/Drones enthusiast, I really like to see […]
RobotShop recently received the first shipment of several new Mini UAVs / Drones. Unlike many small R/C quadcopter kits on the market, these are RTF (Ready To Fly) models, so everything needed to fly is inside the box. Charge the battery, plug it in and take off. Two inexpensive models we tested recently allow you […]
