components carried by an easy-to-fly unmanned aircraft vehicle (UAV). The system, available
in open-source , is designed for researchers, students and makers for a broad range of their
exploration and data-collection needs. The main contribution is the extensible architecture for
modularized airborne sensor deployment and real-time data visualisation. Our open-source
Android application provides data collection, flight path definition and map tools. Total cost of
the system is below 800 dollars. The flexibility of the system are illustrated by mapping the location
of Bluetooth beacons (iBeacons) on a ground field and by measuring water temperatures in a lake.
