Hi everyone, This is my first Forum/ APM Experience... I am trying to have my X8 fly with the airspeed sensor but I am having a really strange behavior. I have the APM 2.5 directly from 3Drobotics,…Continue
"What ever happened to this project? This idea of a quality X8-like flying wing would be awesome.
I think scaling to 1600mm would be desirable in the interest of more gear payload and flight time.
I'm only starting out, but 4s is a great…"
"These and other CAD files are available, but only to interns with Kashmir World Foundation. You can apply at http://www.kashmirworldfoundation.org/#!interns/cv4i
and also send a note to Princess Aliyah via…"
"Just a thought, would the air emprisoned in the foam would explode the aircraft as it goes up in loe pressure atmosphere... the weather balloon does take a huge amount of volume as its climbing... so would the foam...
"I've been working on a wing design that's quasi-Skyfun size (1000mm span) but I keep running into MTOW/payload issues with the equipment I want to have on board. I'm beginning to think I need to scale it up to achieve my goals.…"
"Great List of suggested upgrades! Although I too like and continue to enjoy the X8, it is not perfect nor is it well suited for composites. At Kashmir World Foundation we have created a much improved blended wing body aircraft that…"
"I'm in for a pair if this moves forward….. X8 carbon Kickstarter Campaign??
As opposed to "Just" an x8, it would be great to compile all the mods and custom revisions into an open source file; things like:
"I strongly disagree with the issues you guys are raising about weight. If you build it right it can be very strong and still quite light. I fly fully moulded gliders and they are bullet proof compared to what is required for a X8
I Like the…"
Love flying wings, I think it is the perfect way to minimise the wet area not used for lift. Former merber of VAMUDES at University of Sherbrooke, I still love UAVs for their great potentials and accesibility
