Pascal Fust commented on OG's blog post Vertical take off and landing Air plane gas Electric VOLT hybrid
"No idea, why my comment has been deleted a few days ago. Nevertheless, I stated there, that the video features a variety of aircrafts, ranging from Sparkletech's Eagle Hero and/or Technosys Thresher-03 down to the product line of JOUAV…"

Pascal Fust commented on Nicolai Valenti's blog post Sandwich: my little (and really cheap) cargo drone
"Ciao Nicolai, mi piace molto la tua intensione, volonta e (naturalmente) anche il tuo concept. Bravo !! Po dare qualque informationi tecchnichi supplementari della drona?"

Pascal Fust commented on sander's blog post DeltaQuad VTOL completes 100KM autonomous mission carrying a 1KG payload
"Indeed, great performance for that "bulky" X8 airfoil ;-) I'm highly interested in the "official" version of that A/C and it's performance - keep me updated. Btw.: what's the landing radar log? Are you using radar…"

Pascal Fust replied to OG's discussion large scale Fixed Wing VOLT Air Craft system hybrid gas Electric system
"Hey OG, do you have a webpage, where you're presenting the different models?"

Pascal Fust commented on Hein du Plessis's blog post VTOL by Arkbird
"My 5c about efficiency of transitional A/Cs: in terms of parasitic weight, I agree with you that this design is as minimalistic as possible, however the huge thrust needed for take-off and landing demands powerful motors and props, which are (often)…"

Pascal Fust commented on Gisela & Joe Noci's blog post Tail Boom Co-axial Brushless motor Prop Drives - A different Angle.
"Hey Joe and Gisela, as a wildlife biologist, I deeply appreciate your dedication for the conservation of wildlife. As a mechanical engineer I really love your approach of optimizing established techniques and technology by the local means. This…"

Pascal Fust commented on sander's blog post DronesLab DeltaQuad prototype at PX4 headquarters in Zurich
"Great plane and perfect control. I am looking forward to the conversion kit, as the flight time of V2 (90 minutes) @ 100km provides a powerful package for big area surveying. Keep me informed when and where to get it ! "

Pascal Fust commented on Joseph Aletky's blog post Worlds Smallest Pixhawk Powered Quadplane: SUAVX Nano VTOL UAV
"Nice design, Dorjano, however, this solution is not very efficient either, as you're still using 4 motors for propulsion in airplane mode. Just think about the power used during this airplane mode. Furthermore, the propellers used…"

Pascal Fust commented on Tiaan Roux's blog post ALTI Transition 6 hour VTOL cargo lifter
"@Giovanni: Possible that 18x12 is not very common, but I just tried some setups in ecalc. Check below... Here's the excerpt from the Plettenberg site:"

Pascal Fust commented on Tiaan Roux's blog post ALTI Transition 6 hour VTOL cargo lifter
"Regarding the electric drives for the VTOL mode, I would guess that you should be able to lift 12kg with 4 18''-props. A short calculation in ecalc.ch proves that using e.g. Plettenberg motor Xtra 25-12 (265kV) with a 6S setup and 18x12…"

Pascal Fust commented on Tiaan Roux's blog post ALTI Transition 6 hour VTOL cargo lifter
"The wing span must definitely be a typo mistake. If you look at the picture on their homepage, the guy holding the plane must otherwise be a midget... I'd estimate it at about 3m, at least. Although I think that 1kg payload can take quite a bit…"

Pascal Fust commented on John C.'s blog post Sequoia In The Wild!
"Great, thanks, this helped me quite a bit - but no, I am definitely not an expert in this. It looks, however, as if my guess was right then, correcting the lens focal length of the monochrome sensor to 3.02mm, instead of 3.98mm.  BTW, for the…"

About Me:
Background in mechanical engineering and wildlife conservation, and highly into aviation and computing - perfect preconditions for drones, isn't it?
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I see a big potential in the application of UAVs for environmental monitoring projects, as they provide an affordable and efficient tool for frequent collection of aerial data.
