I am finally about finished with my Steampunk Tricopter. I have been working on this design since last December on and off. After crashing last fall I decided to completely rebuild as a steampunk airship. I looked extensively on line to get some ideas and to see what was out there but I couldn't find anything that inspired me. Using my electronic components from my existing tricopter, I completely redesigned every part. I mean, the only parts I used from my old frame was…Continue
NACA, the precursor to NASA, was founded 100 years ago today. NACA was instrumental in furthering fundamental knowledge of airfoil theory, and created well-known families of airfoils still widely used today.
To honor the NACA legacy, we've added the NACA 4-digit airfoil series to Mach-Up in high-resolution. That's 10,000 airfoils…Continue

In the Albatros UAV, a new design after Barcelona 3d printed UAV, I'll test a moving mass (batteries) control and an aeroelastic wing for the aileron surface. What do you think about that?

I just tried to edit my post and I hope that all the comments didn't get deleted.
If so, I will have to go back through what I had, and try to add them in. oops sorry won't do that…Continue
I'm Karan from India and have been involved with drones for around 3 years now.
Is any work being done by the development team to add this class of vehicle to the capabilities of the APM or Pixhawk series of…Continue
Hi All, Just pulled this image in from SUAS News (Thank you Gary) to illustrate a few really good concepts that it incorporates and talk about better Multicopter design a bit.
This copter has a lot of things right and is really a study in design excellence.
1. Most obvious is a sliding…Continue
Just finished assembling the frame. looks like a tank! lol.Continue
Bending the parts.
Test fit of the stacked up plate and Centerpiece. I really have a hard time bending the parts. I made a sheet metal brake made of wood! Checked the distances from the CAD drawing. everything seems ok. +/- 1mm-- good enough for me.…Continue
Just fresh from the waterjet cutter..
I wanted to design (actually took reference on a couple of existing design) my quadcopter frame. My main purpose is to have a quadcopter carry a gopro for…Continue
HackEDA (previously) has improved it's software algorithm and is now running a Kickstarter campaign that offers the ability to instantly create pcb designs, and even manufacture boards by dragging and dropping chips in your browser.
Hi there welcome back,
Here is a little picture of the first version of my quad hybrid projet
It's a version to allow "Maxime carrier" to crash it 1 or 2 time before it's broke XD.
The design of the 2 rotating propeler is pending until i got the missing part. beteween 2…Continue
I just wanted to share a design we have been working on for the FPV/DIY UAV crowd.
Our goal was to design something relatively rugged, easy to build/use and affordable. And since we CNC hot wire cut foam cores for a living it needed to be manufacturable with our current…Continue
