"I don't think I follow on some parts of the design. What pivots the ball about the horizontal axis? I see how the vertical axis works and I can see how the retract mech. could work...
What is the wedge for? Where does the second servo go?"
"We should keep it simple. Start with a very simple retracting turret for a specific camera size and scale up from there. We just need to have an idea that everyone can play around with and innovate off of or poke holes at."
"I haven't weighed the aircraft yet but it will be heavier. You can try using a single layer of 1oz carbon to make the plane lighter but the plane wont be sturdy enough, and you'll find it will deform even under the lightest of flight…"
"I have produced a few of these out of fiberglass and will be happy to sell you a couple of halves as a diy kit. Just let me know if you want some pictures of what I have produced so far. I could do carbon or a mix/specific layup if you want as…"
"1) I would base the airfoil off of an existing airfoil. From the looks of your airfoil you will have a lot of lift at slow speeds, but also a ton of drag and large moment. There are many tools you can use to come up with the wing design (x-foil is a…"
I believe the pictures are just black and white. Also, the placement of the yellow boxes would suggest a description of the pictures, however the boxes don't describe the plane in either picture."
"You're going to want to figure out how to build it first. It's going to be hard to make anything larger than the size of a cell phone with that amount. Generally you have to factor in a waste quantity (40% or more depending on how much…"
