This being my first post and all please bear with me.
Having read through an number of posts on airframes for armature UAV's i'm left a bit baffled.
I do understand that some people are more into electronics and software than building airframes but i find it quite odd that a modified Easystar seems to be the "donor" plane of choice.
I know that the mods are endless and there's even a guy that writes about building and selling Easystar carbon fuselages here but from what i can tell the fuselage and the fact that ailerons are not standard
is the Achilles heel of the Easystar.
Obviously threes no reason to reinvent the wheel so i was thinking along the lines of combining the wings of something like a "BMI Arrow", "AXN Floater jet" or "Dynam Hawksky" (they are all Easystar type planes
but with ailerons) with the fuselage of something like "Penguin-B UAV" or "Team Javelin" which should basically result in a platform as stable as the Easystar but with a lot more room and freedom for payload placement.
Anyways... My point being (although a bit obscured). How about a joint venture. There's loads of brilliant people with tons of experience in here. Why not define a "standard" DIY Drone platform that will suit the majority of projects?
Please let me know you thoughts.
Lets get a list of requirements together and see what happens.
