Sean brought an updated Aerotestra Hugo by. Improvements include:
Power switch.... where have I seen that before? ;)
That looks fantastic!
Indeed very nice. I like the monocoque body. I think nearly all copters are going to go this way within a couple of years. All our current copters with all the little bits you put together to get them flying are going to look very dated...like a model T compared to a toyota.
Randy I really dig your Ford model T analogy! You are right, we are seeing the next evolution of frames, just take the DJI Phantoms, I already pre-sold a ton of them, just because they look cool! This frame is very nice and sturdy, I will be looking to see if I can stock some of them in the shop for sure.
Mark, thanks for keeping us posted!
Check out the tail boom on a SAB Goblin helicopter. That's the future. Expensive to replace, but a more modern design for sure.
... a little disappointing as well. One big advantage is the rainproof of the frame and motors. Seeing this open solution for apm/gps is not really cool. OK you could easily add a dome, but this would kill the sleek look ... v2.0?
You and Aquacopter are definitely heading in the right direction and I like the panel access on yours better.
I take it Kydex construction like theirs as well.
I know your working on your website, but a little info like size, weight, motor size and max loaded weight might be good.
Vacuum forming has great potential for these things.
Looking great! One question, Is there any anti-spark feature on the power switch? The reason I ask is that you can get a lot of spark when connecting batteries, and sparks builds soot and ruins the switch over time. With normal battery connectors this isn't normally a problem, since the spark only affect the tip of the connector where it first connects.
As boards mature its going to be all about looks and simplicity.
