"Nice project. Watching your video, I got scared of the huge apparent vibrations level on your Pixhawk that is barely isolated. Have you checked your vibes log ? Better do it before you become victim of a flyaway...."

Hybrid Cargo Drone First prototype (15kg max weight at take-off)

After a few months of work, the first prototype is ready. In the video, we show some moments of construction and testing.The propulsion system worked better than we expected, now we are focusing on a new generator that will allow staying in the air with 150 grams of fuel per hour (that's awesome if you think the weight at take-off is 5 kg).The new frame will have a diagonal of one meter, so we will be able to use new motors with a thrust capability of 30 kg.We saw that the market is really…See More

"You really need to switch to ArduPilot to get the most from this. Much better at handling internal combustion engines, and far more suitable for complex missions."

About Me:
What to say?

I'm a student (third year of aeronautical engineering) I'm a daylight dreamer, really love everything that can fly since i remember, I also love martial arts and photography.

Yes, guys, English isn’t my native language, but I have the impudence to write in English anyway I know well Italian and Russian

In future i want to start up my own drone business or become a pilot (need some extra money for this).
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I love everything that can fly, I started this hobby in 2012, and now I'm working on gps fully autonomous quadcopter,I want to create something that can help people in every day actions like carrying things.

Generator on the drone, kickstarter project, test flight and new sketch of the gas generator

Okay, there is so much stuff in the title so let's start with the generator on the prototype 

This is the prototype, the generator is only for demonstration purpose because the generator at the moment is made from a nitro engine with all the connected problems (vibration and fuel consumption). A good thing…

Going forward, Hybrid System drone (Sandwich Drone Project)

In this month I've worked on my generator, it is composed of a brushless motor, a glow one and a diode bridge rectifier, as you can see in picture

It was able to generate at max throttle about 1.2 kW , starting the motor is difficult, I don't love glow engines (I only figured it now ahah) but the point is…
