Hey there G - Hope your trip went smooth...
Thanks again for all the flying - and donating your airframe to the cause. Been speaking with Stuart a lot more... He's fast!! Quadro-chopper still is not on the table in front of me- but Ill give you a shout when it is- and post some pictures.

not too many repairs to be done to your craft- just changing the wheels really and thinking about molding a new nose for it..

Again I'll post pictures when anything happens..

Till then, enjoy the sunshine I guess.

Cheers-
Mc Smith

No problem. I will take you up on the offer then next time I am in SA + I will try to bring my plane out and get some long duration flying in so I will need some pointers on good locations to fly.

Gary, what's the current state of your "Airframe 1 in FlightGear" project? Let me know if I can help you with the aspects concerning UAV Playground.

Am looking at assisting drug enforcement on the Seychelles. We are busy acquiring a Bank License there and need to assist the Island folk with other infrastructure. They have a huge drug problem evolving and their sea is vast and have 115 islands although we would only need to concentrate on those surrounding Mahe. The yachts are the problem donkeys.
What do you think?

Hi Gary

Looks like you had a good turn out for your RCAP event. I have been toying with the idea of arranging an informal event here in Southern California for autopilot users but worry that Patrick would be lurking in the bushes to report us all to the FAA.

Your new airframe looks good. Any plans to make it available for sale?

Regards

C.

thanks for your response Gary. I was starting to think I was all alone out here. Please send me an email on rossbw@eastcoast.co.za with details of your system. you can check out our website www.agricane.com for more details about the work we do. We opperate on large estates for the likes of Tongaat huletts and illovo. 12 000 ha is a fairly normal size that we will have to cover in a week to 10 days, so we need a system that can handle a lot of work. Look forward to hearing from you.
kind regards
Ross

Hello,

Sorry, I didn't see a way to PM someone. When I went into my inbox to compose a message, it said I had to enter an e-mail address. Anyway, how are we after the same thing? As in the projects we want to do, or what we want our UAVs to do?

Hey Gary,
I'm using my own PicPilot autopilot that I've been developing the last few months and an EZ Clone called the "AXN Floater". Let me know if you have any more questions.

Thanks,
Brian

Hi Gary

What do they say here on the radio, Long time Listener first time Caller. Don't post very often, no Axe to grind, just playing and learning. Started this about 19 years ago to build and airplane to survey the Abbeville,La nudest camp. Did FPV back then on Ham 432 am video and a Vidicon camera that weighed almost what my current airplane weights.

My current airframe is simple, very stable, gets into tight spots and is adaptable to many missons. Here is a picture with 2 other modules I juse, one is a pan tilt and the other is a combination of FPV and fly around an take pictures. The Tubes are 3 inch mailing tubes which fin to a standard frame on the bottom of the wing. All the full time stuff the Attopilot V1.8 and RC stuff is permanent up in the box.


The airframe weighs about 3 lbs without a camera and battery. Hope this is what you need.

Don't usually enter contests but I thought I would learn how Atto does it photo thing.

Thanks for all the great info you post daily.

Steve

I guess the picture is great but doesn't tell all. Its my design, 56 inch wing about 530 sq/ins. Powered with a Chinese KD 36-28S Brushless Outrunner. Spektrum 2.4 with Xbee2.4 datalink(never had a problem with them together). Depends on what I'm doing I may use Xtend, Xbee 900 or 2.4. Video downlink is on 900mhz with homemade Antenna Tracker. This airframe has about 50 flights, I have my prototype with about 300 flights with Atto and 25 flights with Ardu v2.4 and it looks bad from all the attenna installations but it still fly's great. This has Ailerons but I have one airframe that has just Rudder-Elevator that flys perfectly. All are easier to fly than a foam glider.


Thanks again
Steve

I really appreciate your comment on that site and your kind words. I'll be sure to let you know as soon as I've got any updates posted on the blog. I'll try and post at least once a fortnight or more if possible.

Also if you are undertaking any projects yourself I'd really like to hear from you.
