Quadcopter Hoverboard

Quadcopter hoverboard makes it into the Guiness Book of Records! Is this the "Back To The Future" future of quadcopters?

It's not really fair to say that hoverboards don't exist -- they do, in wildly varying forms. Unfortunately they also happen to be pretty... raw. Which means they are either unable to work for more than a few seconds or require a surface substrate rippling with an opposing magnetic field to get around.

Still, the hope remains that a functioning mass-market hoverboard will become a possibility one day -- perhaps even before everyone who saw Back To The Future in cinemas is too old to try it out.

Today we've come one step closer, thanks to Catalina Alexandru Duru who has just broken the official record for the longest flight ever on a hoverboard.

Using his own conception of a floating skateboard -- this time a horizontal board powered by two massive fans like a quadcopter, rather than a water jet or magnets -- Duru managed to fly 905 feet and 2 inches over the surface of Lake Ouareau in Quebec, Canada, under the watchful gaze of Guinness World Records.

The YiZhan Tarantula X6 quadcopter has a range upto 300 meters. This is the first quadcopter that I've seen under £70 with such long range, straight out of the box.

Tarantula X6 JJRC H16

The Tarantula X6 is the second drone model of the YiZhan RC toy manufacturer.

Using a 30C 7.4V 1200mAh Li-Po battery, the YiZhan Tarantula X6 drone has enough power for stable flights even on windy days.

You can equip your YiZhan Tarantula X6 with the 500W wide-angle 30 fps 1080p Full HD camera or with the 200W 60 fps 720p HD camera. Both are installed on a special camera mount with vibration reduction system to reduce the jello effect of the rotors.

With the Hyper IOC function, the beginner pilots don’t need to worry about losing their orientation, even if they fly 100 meters away  the YiZhan Tarantula X6 drone will still come back when you pull back on the stick regardless of which way it is facing.
This new drone has many amazing features that can help novice pilots on their first flight, take for instance the powerful LED lights and adjustable flight speed.

Yuneec Q500 Quadcopter review

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015
Close

I flew most of my flights in Angle Mode except when I wanted to test how well the orientation control or the follow me features of Smart Mode worked. Angle mode feels like a normal quadcopter and that's a good thing. The big props mean it has a low disk loading which is great for long flight times, but can make the copter bobble around in the wind or when descending. I felt like the gains could have been increased some, but there is no way to do that in the software. Other than that, it handles great and is as responsive as you want it to be using the control rate slider on the transmitter. I noticed that I felt extremely comfortable with it right off the bat. I didn't get any weird vibes from it if that makes sense. It was solid and did what I told it to do and stopped and held its position when it was supposed to. I put around 20 flights on it during my testing over the course of a week and didn't have a single issue, it just worked.

Take offs require just a touch over half throttle for the flight board to increase the power. It goes straight up and holds a solid hover. The position and altitude hold works amazingly well. It ranks up there with the best flight boards on the market. It is nice having a spring loaded throttle so that when you release the throttle stick it returns to the midpoint and the Q500 will hold that altitude. It even held attitude well while transitioning from moving forward to stopping.
Yuneec Q500 Quadcopter
Flying around as a sport quad won't be that much fun as even on full rabbit the control rate is just not that fast. This is really designed for taking photos and videos so the parameters are setup to make it smooth and steady. There is enough angle to penetrate some wind, but they don't recommend flying in anything over 12MPH. On one of my test flights the wind was around 10MPH and it handled it just fine.

Landings can be a little tricky with the Q500. Something about the motor algorithm or pressure sensor causes it to bounce some even if you have the throttle stick all the way down. You can make a good landing, but more often than not, it would bounce on me. I started getting ready to hit the Start/Stop button just before touchdown to kill the motors. Make sure you are landing on a flat surface. It's not as big of a deal as it sounds, it just handles differently while landing than I'm used to.

The Q500 is a fantastic package that includes absolutely everything you are going to need to get up and running for capturing aerial photos and videos. Everything from the packaging to the quality of the gear makes it really feel like a prosumer product. It's easy to fly and simple to use. It just works right out of the box with no fuss at all. For the money, you won't find a better complete package out of the box.

Pros

Everything You Need
HD Ground Station
Long Flight Times
Two Batteries Included
High Quality Construction
Position and Altitude Holding
Camera Gimbal Stabilizes Footage

Cons

Props will enter camera view on forward flight
Landings can be bouncy
Video is a bit soft
Poor viewing angle on screen
Video lag makes it harder to precisely line up a shot

Note: Updated for early 2015

This guide will hopefully take you through all of the best ready-to-fly multirotor options. It should also give you a reason to pick one over the other.

In my opinion, there are four key factors that make a good ready-to-fly multirotor. Each model was picked based on features, quality, ease of use and value. Although this is a numbered list based on which models I personally like the most, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t consider all of them when buying your first drone. Everyone has different needs and reasons for wanting one over the other, so just keep that in mind when looking at drone reviews online.

Before we get started, you should know that all of these drones for sale are called multirotors, but most people still call them drones because it’s easier to say. A quadcopter is a type of multirotor aircraft with four rotors.

The best drone for sale right now is the Phantom 2. There’s a few reasons why it’s so great. The first is that it’s the easiest multirotor to fly hands down. Even an 8 year old could learn how to control it within a few minutes. Not only is it a great quadcopter for beginners, when combining it with the H3-3D gimbal it’s one of the best aerial video tools for the price ever made. It also has great flight time, (about 15 to 20 minutes) which is better than most ready-to-fly (RTF) multirotor under $1000. DJI is also always updating their software to fix bugs and add additional features to their products.

The Phantom 2 is priced at about $680 which isn’t cheap, but at the same time it’s made a lot better than the other quadcopters, like the Quanum Nova.

One possible negative thing that actually has nothing to do with the Phantom itself, is DJI’s bad customer support. This is probably because they have so many people buying Phantoms that they can’t keep up with questions and complaints. The good news is that they have gotten much better in the past 6 months.

On a positive note, the amount of YouTube videos, websites and people in general talking about Phantom 2 is huge. Any questions that you might have, there will always be someone out there who knows the answer. You can also find a massive amount of after market products for sale like carrying cases, upgrade parts and more.

If you really don’t believe that the Phantom 2 can take great quality shot, then watch this video that we made not too long ago in Arizona. You might change your mind.

Parrot Bebop Drone

Parrot Bebop Drone

Parrot Bebop Drone targets competitors with full-HD video, GPS, and new controller (hands-on)

With the Bebop Drone, Parrot puts higher-end features into a compact quadcopter that is sure to attract new and experienced pilots.

For starters, its camera is a step-up from the one found on its previous models like the AR.Drone 2.0, with an f2.2 fish-eye lens with a 180-degree angle of view and a 14-megapixel sensor.

It can capture video at 1080p full-HD resolution; the AR.Drone 2.0 is limited to 720p. Video is recorded to the Bebop's 8GB of internal storage (there's no microSD or SD card slot) in MP4 format. Photos can be captured in JPEGs or Adobe DNG raw format.

Parrot takes advantage of the extra resolution to let you digitally pan and zoom your picture as well as stabilize your shots on three axes. Though this might not be as good a solution as putting the camera on a gimbal, it likely allows Parrot to cut costs and keep the Bebop light -- its maximum weight is 410 grams (14.5 ounces) -- and compact. It measures roughly 12 inches (28cm) square and 1.5 inches (3.6cm) tall.
Joshua Goldman/CNET

Unlike the AR.Drone 2.0, the Bebop has a GNSS chipset with GPS, Glonass, and Galileo built in. The chipset allows the Bebop to return to its take-off location on its own and hover in place, among other things. When you can't get a GPS lock, such as when you're flying inside, a vertical camera and ultrasound and pressure sensors keep it from drifting while hovering.

Unfortunately, being so small and light means you don't have much room for a big battery. The Bebop is limited to a flight time of 11 minutes. High winds and fast flying will shorten that time. (The Bebop can fly in winds up to about 30mph or 50kmh, and can reach speeds of around 45mph or 75kmh.)

Though long flights are out of the question with that battery time, the battery is removable, so you can always carry extras and Parrot is including a second pack with the Bebop. No pricing was available for additional packs or other accessories.

Just as with the company's older AR.Drones, the Bebop works with Parrot's FreeFlight app for piloting the drone as well as controlling the camera, and viewing videos and photos from a smartphone or tablet (Android, Windows Phone and iOS are supported). Also, using the Bebop's GNSS chipset, you'll be able to set waypoints and create a flight plan for the drone allowing for completely autonomous flight.
parrot-bebop-1114-08.jpg Joshua Goldman/CNET

For those of you who want physical controls instead of just using touch, Parrot has the Skycontroller. This gives you two sticks for piloting; discrete controls for the camera; a button for taking off and landing and one for emergency motor cutoff; status lights for the battery of the Bebop and the controller; a return-to-home button; and you can wirelessly pair a tablet or phone with it for first-person-view (FPV) flying.

The Skycontroller runs on Android, which allowed Parrot to install the FreeFlight app on it, so you don't need to pair a mobile device to fly. This also means you can connect an external display via the full-size HDMI and use that to see what the camera sees. The Skycontroller will also support VR headsets like the Oculus Rift through the HDMI output, completely immersing you for FPV flight.

On top of the Skycontroller is an amplified Wi-Fi radio and four antennas allowing you to fly farther -- up to 1.2 miles (2km). Of course, with the 11-minute flight time, you'll have to plan accordingly. It also provides some cover for the screen so you're not struggling as much to see in the sun.

JJRC H8C 2.4G 4CH 6 Axis RC Quadcopter With 2MP Camera RTF

Video to follow as soon as my JJRC  H8C Quadcopter arrives and I've filmed it!

I'll let you know how long it takes to arrive in the UK. Update: It took about 2 weeks to arrive in the UK, checkout the review on this link... JJRC H8C Quadcopter Review

The quadcopter looks pretty good and should be ideal for flying indoors through the winter, our flying club uses the indoor Lawn Bowling Club in the evenings, perhaps you could have a similar arrangement with a club in your area.  Ours even throws in sausage and chips for our £3 per person entry fee!

DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter Drone with 4K UHD Video Camera
DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter Drone with 4K UHD Video Camera

Description

The Phantom 3 Professional continues the proud tradition of DJI's Phantom series and brings several important innovations to the Phantom's rich feature set. The Phantom 3 Professional carries a fully stabilized 3-axis 4k UHD video camera for smooth, crisp videos and still photos. To allow you to see what the drone sees, DJI has engineered a new generation of their Lightbridge technology that allows 720p HD digital streaming of live video directly from the drone. You can control the camera and see video in real time as you fly and you can even share the video using the DJI Pilot app's advanced features. To aid indoor flying, the Phantom 3 Professional includes an integrated array of optical and ultrasonic sensors call Vision Positioning that allows you to fly precisely indoors without a GPS signal. The Phantom 3 Professional includes all the tried-and-true features you'd expect from a DJI drone, including GPS navigation with auto takeoffs and auto landings, intelligent high power flight battery, a built-in safety database of no fly zones, and a powerful mobile app for your iOS or Android device.Note: DJI has locked your Phantom from being able to even start the motor if you live within a 15 mile radius of the White House. This encompasses not only D.C. but much of Prince Georges County, Arlington, Fairfax, Silver Spring, Falls Church and Montgomery County. DJI does not warn you of this prior to purchase. Outside of this 15 mile radius, the drone works great, but be aware, that if you bought it and live within the restricted zone, you will not be able to fly it, even on your own property.
