this is my first thread or discussion and I would like to introduce myself first.
i graduated 3 years ago with a bachelor degree in aerospace engineering, my final design project was a UAV, but it was only the airframe and structure itself without the avionics.
we planned that the UAV was to be used for highway patrol and monitoring.
So now i am thinking seriously about building one but since am a beggener I would like to start step by step and not jump right to video, downlink ... etc.
I want to learn how to build a UAV that goes from point A to point B and back to point A and so on. I would be glad also if anyone can tell me what are the componants of a basic UAV system like the one i just mentioned? for example, GPS, Autopilot ... etc.
I fly RC planes and currently have 2 rc planes, one that is almost 3 meter span and another one almost 1 meter span.
any help is greatly appreciated,
