"I fly 18x5.5 props on my OctaQuad plane and it has no problems in high wind. Here is a landing in a 22 knot wind: note that the wind was from behind (landing downwind) so it automatically turns into the wind as soon as it starts the landing…"

"John, I'm not to worried about the inertia of a 18" prop in relation to the weight and drag of the aircraft. I'm experimenting with a multicopter with 12  30" props and I'm having little issue with inertia. Even with…"

John Arne Birkeland commented on Tiaan Roux's blog post ALTI Transition 6 hour VTOL cargo lifter
"I predict this thing will have stability issues in hover, especially if there is any wind. The wing and tail design looks very draggy and 18" props have to much inertia to allow rapid corrections. At best it will have to make sure it always…"

Rob_Lefebvre commented on Tiaan Roux's blog post ALTI Transition 6 hour VTOL cargo lifter
"I don't think it's possible for the 20cc engine to produce enough power to actually lift the vehicle.  But I would think a generator could be set up to charge the lift batteries over time.  Looks like it takes about 2500W for…"

Andrew Murphy commented on Tiaan Roux's blog post ALTI Transition 6 hour VTOL cargo lifter
"Is ALTI considering linking the battery and I.C.E. in some sort of hybrid version to extend hover performance? With a lot of people trying it in multi rotors I was wondering if they thought this could be feasible for a fixed wing or maybe there are…"

"Hi Duran Thanks for the update. 2760mm sounds and looks better, but I was hoping you had abandoned conventional flight theory(!), of the requirement to have a low stall speed on the wings to facilitate landing/takeoff because you have the…"

Duran - ALTI commented on Tiaan Roux's blog post ALTI Transition 6 hour VTOL cargo lifter
"Giovanni, setup is 8S, hover is around 30-40%, she's got more than enough power and hovers long enough to do a full photo shoot ;)"

Giovanni Esposito commented on Tiaan Roux's blog post ALTI Transition 6 hour VTOL cargo lifter
"18"x12" is not a very common setup, 18x6-7" will lift 3.5 Kg with powerfull motors (and 6-8s batteries) and with 12Kg tow they will be almost maxed up at hover, with a very narrow usefull range and far from max efficiency. It's a…"

Congratulations to all at ALTIUAS an RPA made in Africa, for Africa and the rest of the world. This would meet the delivery drone targets of many emerging projects. Instead of delivering things swap out the payload for cameras and be able to survey large areas in rough terrain.

"The ALTI Transition is a radically new VTOL unmanned aerial aircraft, developed from the ground up as an advanced fixed wing system with the ability to take-off and land vertically, anywhere.…

DIY Drones - South African Chapter first general meeting

Posted on February 5, 2010 at 11:49am 36 Comments

Hear ye! hear ye! On this 5th day of the month of February in the year 2010 it happened, the first get together of the South African Chapter of DIYDrones!


I would say it turned out very successful, starting off very informal then quickly turning in to a storm of ideas lasting quite a few hours. Hopefully the first of many!


Sarel will post some more info on ideas and decisions made.


Thank you to Sarel and…
