Hi,I have just finished building a Senior Telemaster (8ft Wingspan).I want to complete a long range UAV flight.I am fairly new to the topic of UAVs and was wondering if I should go down the electric…Continue
Do you knowof anyone who has tried fht FlyingFoam Telemaster wings cores?
They have 10" chord 72" wingspan foam cores. I have a 47" Telemaster, and I like the way it flies, so may buy a pair of the 72" foam wing cores to…"
Some thoughts from an RC guy who flies electrics. You can still probably get the max flight time from a nitro engine,
and just maxing out the size of the gas tank. I don't like the noise and mess, so I fly electrics.
If you decide to…"
"I have to make the obligatory comment that flying out of line of sight is illegal in most countries (including the UK) without special regulatory approval. So I'm just going to assume that you're not doing this in any regulated airspace."
"I'll have to defer to others for comm systems that work reliably that far out. Do you want an RC system that works that far out? Video? Telemetry? IP? What bandwidth do you need? Can you figure out a way to go out that far, collect your data…"
"Thanks Very Much Curt
This has really informed me and now I have some idea of how to progress.
I am looking for long range flights 10 miles or more possibly..
Do you have any idea of transmitters and receivers to use or any websites that supplies…"
"I can give you one data point for your reference.
We are running an AXi 4130/16 motor, Phoenix 80 speed controller, I can't see the prop label because the spinner is covering it, but it's a 15" prop. If I had to guess at pitch…"
Hi,I have just finished building a Senior Telemaster (8ft Wingspan).I want to complete a long range UAV flight.I am fairly new to the topic of UAVs and was wondering if I should go down the electric route or engine route to achieve the longest flight.If I went electric - what motor should I consider and how many batteries?If I went for the engine - what engine is very efficient and what size fuel tank would you recommend?ThanksSee More
