It's been some time since I have thought to check your site and I am pleased to see how much you have accomplished. Since the introduction of the Nitroplanes Predator, about two years ago, they have come out with a composite Reaper and just recently, a composit RQ-11 Raven. With these options for basic airframes, now readily available, your group should have a blast up-fitting them with the latest and greatest technology. Here are a few links;
We have made a cool kit for the Raven by Nitroplanes that allows for quick take down. $30 shipped.
See link. http://aerosight.com/Kits.html
We will be adding more goodies for it soon
Any other mods you want please tell me.
i just ordered two sets from you as soon as i woke up !!!
Got your order and started building/cutting. Trin to whip up a semi rigid case for it soon. Will post it when I do. Also almost done with my first mockup of my HAWK FPV plane..Not painted yet. Still glassing it. If i like her I will make molds or finalize a kit of sorts.. Post pics soo as well..

Like arashi, I also have my paintball container and am looking forward to
seeing your retract camera concept. Is this FUN or what???????????
Rolling along... yes I used the diamond type of cutting wheel for a Dremel tool. Use a 1" wheel and it will make the cut almost exact for your servo size. It wont shred if using a wheel to cut. Drill bits etc can be a stinker! After the cut, put some thin CA on the edges to dope it up and insure no fraying..
I have been digging into what it'd take to get us other wings.. I am going to mockup a slightly larger plane like this, maybe a hair wider, with more room for a wider wing etc..
And guys by the way.
Kits will still be $30 and will come with G10 wing ribs and motor plate, a spring steel button release. they don't come with the dihedral bar insert. you use the plywood one the Rq-11 came with..
Sorry for the confusion!
My website needs to be changed back to the $30 prices..
turns out we are a bit backordered and he didn't tell me right away.. Panic attack I tell ya! LOL
