Terrain Following using FLEXIPILOT - milestone flight report

2012-04-23 at 19PM GMT+1, FLEXIPILOT (my own closed-source development) with special Terrain Follower firmware, controlling EasyUAV, has made its first long duration loiter at 1.5-3m AGL above sloped terrain. Loiter diameter was around 110m.

10m Flight took place in steady weather, while…

Vickers Wellington as UAV

Bi-motor airplane serving as test platform for FLEXIPILOT.

Used for testing single-engine failures and tuning.

Elevator, differential ailerons, no rudder.

Endurance 50min with one battery.

Cruise speed 50km/h.

Shown loiters at low altitude since at typical cruise altitude of 200m it…

Fournier RF-5 as UAV

Fournier RF5 as UAV

A low-wing stall-prone (due to specific airfoil) motoglider, flown without Pitot Tube.

Endurance 30-45min with one 4Ah battery, but it is so efficient it would fly easily for well above 1.5h.

Yet, I don't like the fact you have to throw it overhead so it will stay limited.

Cruise speed 45km/h.

Monton 1600V as UAV - my most beautiful UAV

A V-tail hotliner integrated with autopilot.

Endurance 30min because of small fuselage capacity,

cruise speed 50km/h. Shown loiters on small altitude since

at typical cruise altitude of 200m it is almost impossible to track a flying object on a clear…

GreatPlanes LANCAIR EP as UAV

Rarely a semi-scale platform is chosen for hobby use as UAV since before the tuning phase is finished, the platform is usually ugly after several damages. But not this time. No flying machines were hurt during making this movie.

Multiplex FOX as UAV

This is a private project, yet another integration of my autopilot with a test platform. Basically everything I ever used as RC model is now flying by itself.

The FOX is really unflyable in RC mode when the motor is below 30% throttle, autopilot handles it much better.

I believe it could be the smallest _classic_ layout winged _outdoor_ UAV in…
