"I am sure one of the reasons, if not the main reason for the large distance from airports is the concern about "runaways" or "flyaways".   The distance gives the batteries more time to run out before the drone gets too near."

Airbus in near miss with craft that ghosted into Britain’s biggest airport undetected by air traffic control

Close call: A passenger plane had a near miss with a drone as it landed at Heathrow on July 22, in the first such incident recorded at Britain’s biggest airport. Above, planes queue to take off at the airport

Pixhawk no power to GPS after board is turned on. (SOLVED)

Posted on June 25, 2014 at 1:30pm 2 Comments

Yes i was watching the hobbit :)

Just a quick heads up for people new to the Pixhawk.

If youe plug the switch led into the wrong connector, it will cause the GPS to short so it will be intermittent sometimes and not work at all the other times.

And sometimes it will no have enough power

this is just to help…

Hybrid V2, making a multirotor plane hybrid with everyday Rc equipment update:

Posted on June 20, 2014 at 4:43pm 0 Comments

it went well, but....

It is possible, but not as easy as i had hoped.

the biggest problem i had was trying to avoid a crash and inadvertently causing one.

The second problem was build, everything was very bodged which made the aircraft hard to control full stop, without the experimental mods.

I need a 3d printer this would make builds…

Hybrid V2, making a multirotor plane hybrid with everyday Rc equipment.

Posted on June 6, 2014 at 6:00am 24 Comments

So i posted about v1 a few weeks ago. this is version 2, much stronger and with better characteristics than the first.

The goal is to make a multirotor hybrid using only hardware mods, and simple ones, i am trying to avoid belt drives etc.
