DIY Drones Amateur UAVs

DIY Drones is an excellent community site for amateur unmanned vehicle development. Using Arduino as a foundation they have created the ArduPilotMega universal autopilot autopilot hardware. It combines sophisticated IMU-based autopilot electronics with free Arduino-based autopilot software that can turn any RC vehicle into a fully-autonomous UAV. The software is open source and currently has three variations: Arduplane, for any fixed-wing aircraft, Arducopter, for any rotary-wing aircraft, and ArduRover, for any ground or water-based vehicle. The site has an active forum as well as a store where you can purchase all the ArduPilot Mega Controller, other Arduino hardware or complete Drone kits.

PI USA - Piezo Actuators for Industrial & Space Applications

Tested to perform 100 billion cycles by NASA for the Mars mission, piezo actuators efficiently convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. If your application requires any combination of these parameters, you should be using piezo motion: • Fast response • High precision • High force • Long life • Maintenance and lubricants free • Compact dimensions • Non-magnetic, UHV compatible Piezo drives provide the best combination of stability, accuracy, responsiveness, and resolution. Brush up on piezo basics for precision motion, force generation, and nanopositioning applications. Learn more in the piezo tutorial
