Airplanes

UAVs and drones which have wings (airplanes) are best suited for traveling long distances or staying in the air for extended periods of time. Most can be remotely controlled or set to autonomous flight mode.

UAV Flights / Restrictions / Suggestions

Posted on September 16, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under Drone, Industry, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.

Drones / UAVs are becoming very popular; the onboard flight controllers are increasingly intelligent and capable, prices for UAVs are dropping and people of all ages are becoming involved. Even small UAVs which fit in your hand can easily reach several hundred feet above the ground and the technology has quickly surpassed any regulations which [...]

Da Vinci, The Surgical Robot With a Sense of Humor

Posted on April 08, 2011

By Carlos Asmat & filled under Domestic, Medical.

The Da Vinci surgical robot created by Intuitive Surgical is a 1.3M $ surgical robot that can conduct complex non invasive operations. This robot is incredibly precise and dexterous as you can see in the video below as it operates on humans and test dummies. We know that surgical interventions are a serious matter, but [...]

The AirSniper is no joke, but the AirKnife is

Posted on August 06, 2008

By William Cox & filled under Military.

Chris Anderson, over at DIY Drones, recently posted a full page advertisement, from the July edition of the AUVSI magazine, for AUS International’s AirSniper product. The AirSniper is described as, “a VTOL combat mini UAV intended for close infantry support.” Or, in other words, “a gun with wings.” Now, this idea seems like a solid one [...]

Cornell Research into Dragonfly Micro-Air Vehicle (MAV)

Posted on February 22, 2006

By William Cox & filled under Science.

From houseflies to honeybees, insects inspire us with flight skills just beyond the grasp of our technology. Z. Jane Wang, a professor at Cornell University, is working to close this gap between inspiration and implementation. Wang’s recent work is on dragonflies, and here she has found some peculiarities. For example, "an airfoil uses aerodynamic lift [...]

Super Small Radio Controlled Airplanes

Posted on December 06, 2005

By William Cox & filled under Industry, Toys.

This isn’t strictly robot related, but have you seen the South Leicester Aeronutz website? There’s some really amazing radio controlled creations on there. Most of the creations use very thin (2mm) foam walls and tiny pager-type motors to turn the prop. You can purchase super-small (under 1cm squre) radio receivers from Micro Flier Radio. For [...]

... a lightweight camera 12' in two directions. X,Y and also to be able to rotate that camera 180 degrees. by remote control like used in hobby cars, airplanes etc. I thought of just buying an R/C Monster Truck and taking it apart for the parts. But they use servos that rotate, and I need linear. ...

When it comes to R/C airplanes, the market is saturated - you can find hundreds of websites offering them and the cost varies wildly. If you use two small servos, the plane itself would need to be relatively small. You should go with ...
