Glad I could help.
One other thing I noticed about the design was the variable sweep canard. I'm not sure why you need or want that feature. The only time I've seen that used was on the Russian SST design. The canard failed during…"
Great work on the video! I really enjoyed it.
The concept has a couple of significant problems, however. As the government found out with it's tail sitters, it is difficult it get the pilot into the aircraft. It sounds trivial, but you…"
"Why do you have to show the UAV landed on a mosque ? is it a symbol of terrorism to you ? This video might offend some of the muslim viewers.
By the way, my team and I had develop similar design UAV with Paparazzi autopilot. "
"Very interesting idea Jacob!
I am also on a team, we are actually working on a semi ridged frame with detachable wings. We are attempting to stay aloft the full 3 hours on target. We have found some solar cells that actually seem to give an…"
"I wasn't trying to be overly negative, or say that it can't work. I was just saying it is not the most inherently stable VTOL platform. Also, if you can find someone that makes a VP EDF, I would be very interested to play with…"
"It all depends on $. If both engines can have variable thrust (or variable pitch) and can quickly move their nozzles at high angles then its up to the control algorithm. Just yesterday I saw a tail sitter that didn't have…"
"my honest opinion, cool animation, but you need to look at the dynamics of your platform a little colser, as per above comment, there is no way your going to balance all that weight on two thrusters, i am a fan of edfs tho."
"Nice animation. I agree with Alex about the EDFs, and would also add that they are quite loud, and I know sound mitigation is one of the things they were looking for. EDFs also tend to have a high pitch, which can cause turbulence…"
