"I've dreamed of making a molded plane from pulp.  It's good enough for eggs and electronics, so why not a small RC plane. Ever try to crush an egg carton?"

New materials to build moulded planes

Hello ensemble,It is sometime now I'm developing planes, mostly gliders, to suit my personal taste.Out of curiosity I started to use some new materials to learn something new.As a first attempt I did build two fuselages for a plank, called Trisel.Those are respectively prototypes #5 and #6.The first fuselage is done in Flax fabric (Eco_Trisel), two 220g/m² layers and a third one on the nose.The result is a very stiff, hard and heavy fuselage, probably well suited for slope and hard use.The…See More

"Hi Andrew, no APM, UavDevBoard instead. It is equipped with a UDB3. You can have a look at it in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiJC4lTkAzY or this one, where I test a DIY vario http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqsroFTWs8Q Best regards, Ric "

DIY vario and head tracker

Hi,I build a couple of DIY electronic devices from open source projects. I thought those could be useful to someone here on DIYDrones and they deserve a little visibility here too.They are based on Arduino Nano and very cheap to build.In this video I'm using both for the first time, with my work horse: the UavDevBoard3 equipped FunCub.One is a variometer, developed and programmed by Kapteinkuk: …See More

Hot wire foam wing cores one man cutting

Posted on March 7, 2012 at 4:00pm 5 Comments

Hi all, sorry if this is a little off topic, but sometimes I need to cut foam cores to build planes.

So finally I decided to put together a little tool to calculate the position of the fixed position of the hot wire, in the case of one man work.

This way it is possible to cut foam cores alone, using only one airfoil template.

Here is a screenshot :

It should be correct, but if someone find something wrong, please tell me and I…

Proxima II ! My most complex UDB4 plane. A tribute to Bill Premerlani

Posted on March 3, 2012 at 8:00am 10 Comments

Hi all,

 

after a lot of research, programming, setting and tuning, I'm proud to announce that my Proxima II went in flight.

 

It was already, but without any autopilot, only to set the right controls, trims, CG and wings angle of attack.

Now it is fully autonomous. This is the more…

Hi all,

MatrixPilot quad_testing code begins to be funny to fly :)

In the video you can see a flight with the code at r1158. It is very stable and reliable. Controls are very smooth.

The quadrocopter is an…

Ricardo, to my knowledge the 868 MHz and the 2.4 GHz XBee are the legal XBee modules for Europe.
I just began testing and I can't tell you what the actual range of my test setup is.

Ricardo, for further details on the XBee telemetry setup you can contact me via email: jarontec gmail com

thank you so much Mr.Kuebler, will follow it.

Hi Ric,

Did you ever get your Ardustation to work? I was trying all week to use SERIAL_ ARDUSTATION from MP, to no avail, at all. Is yours working?
