Hello to you all,
I have been giving some thought to using the aeromaster as a UAV, has anyone built the kit, know how much room is in the fuse or know of any good reason not to use this airframe?
My thinking is along the lines that this plane should stay up for a long time while under little power with all the kit on board. Your thoughts are welcome.
From the product video when he launches the bird you can see it already floats without power! thats always a good sign when wanting to have really long flights!
Thanks Johann, It does look like a good flyer, however I would like to know if anyone has fitted an auto pilot in one and had a good experience with this kit, its not cheap!
The MP Vision is a tractor not a pusher prop, but that aside looks very much like it, and yours for only 9.5k!
the plane is excellent
uwe gartmann uses it.
Thank you both for the links, the detail in the photos of the build from flightronic is great, a lot of food for thought there, now if I can just convince my wife......................
Speaking of permission from the wife... 4 years ago (before I found this site) I sat down with my wife when I turned 50 and said I was getting a UAV and my intended budget was $ 20k. (Micropilot)
I said this was cheaper than getting a corvette and blonde girl friend as a mid-life crisis. (she didn't see the humour in that at all)
Well, we are still together thanks to DIYDrones!
I think I've spent about $ 4k with about 2k to go, but the ArduPilot definitely saved my marriage.
if ardupilot ever goes commercial, I'm sure that phrase will go on their advert :D
