Drones were flying at the Jason Gymnasium floor in Jefferson City last week for the intergenerational pilot program, created by the Lincoln University Cooperative Extension and the Paula J. Carter Center. We were very impressed to see that children as young as 6 joined in on the building, learning and flying of the Lynxmotion VTail […]

This article is intended to help you get started with battery monitoring and the buzzer feature present in MultiWii. We’ll cover proper connections / wiring and software setup as it relates to the Lynxmotion Quadrino Nano flight controller (MultiWii compatible).
With the release of our Lynxmotion Quadrino Nano UAV Flight Controller, we developed an improved version of the Quadrino FCT (Firmware Configuration Tool) which allows for an easy to setup MultiWii experience. Furthermore, we included an algorithm that now takes your multirotor physical properties as well as other information to generate matching PID’s. This greatly removes the […]
At Lynxmotion UAV we were looking at the future of our UAV / Drones lineup and had to take decisions for our next models. There are many ways to make a UAV frame and we wanted to keep the Lynxmotion spirit of being modular and expandable; something you can use to build your frame design and be able […]
Now that you have either chosen or built a frame, the next step is to choose the right propulsion system. A complete propulsion system includes motors, propellers, ESCs and a battery. Almost all small multi-rotor drones / UAVs are electric, with almost none being gas-powered. For this reason, we will focus on implementing an electric propulsion using brushless DC motors.
There have been new recent developments in the US regarding small UAVs / Drones. The FAA has released their “Notice of Proposed Rulemaking” for small Unmanned Aircraft Systems. The document and regulations are open to public opinion for the next 60 days. As stated in the FAA proposal, the regulations seem to be specifically intended to regulate non-hobby / non-recreational use of drones.
