'Drone Zone' online community launched

STMicroelectronics (ST) has announced the launch of Drone Zone — an online community for drone application enthusiasts, developers, makers, universities, research institutes and engineers.

Drone lovers who join the community are encouraged to post their questions and share their experiences using photos, videos and any other drone-application-related material based on ST devices or evaluation boards. This sharing of information and expertise is anticipated to help all participants make progress with their projects.

Getting started with ST’s Flight Control Unit — build your drone.

For people approaching drone design for the first time and are looking for a project easy to understand and to customise, the company suggests the following complete projects:

  • FCU STEVAL-FCU001V1 evaluation board: board documentation, schematics and gerber files — available here.
  • Open source FW project for STM32 and source code of Android app for BLE remocon — available here.
  • 30 A ESC STEVAL-ESC001V1 evaluation board: board documentation, schematics and gerber files — available here.
  • FW project based on vector control algorithm (for motor control experienced engineers) — available here.
