"Thank you kindly, I found another option as well shortly after asking that looks like it doesn't require using uart2 but rather uart0 and making changes to sr0 in advanced parameters with mission planner."
Thanks for the link, sUAS News is one of my daily stops. I've been trying to understand the logic associated with the tail configurations I've seen on a lot of UAVs lately. I get that putting the elevator behind the rudder allows it to…"
Had a look at your plane, looks like an interesting design. In our teams history we've had some wings with removable trays where the solar cells were below a clear film similar to yours, recently disassembled them to get the cells back…"
An academic/university related section would be great in terms of posting content and accessing other members who are in similar fields. In regards to alternative controllers on this project it's unlikely to happen but I appreciate the input,…"
We've definitely looked at Andre's work/thesis, there is some very useful information to anybody getting started in modelling a project like this or wanting to know how much actual optimization of every subsystem is required.
In regards to…"
"Regarding cost and availability it's quite hard to say. We purchased reject cells at a discount and had contacts with somebody to do encapsulation from previous university projects. For hobbyists this is definitely a barrier, and I'm very grateful…"
Prepping for Flight I'd like to introduce SolarSight II, a long endurance solar powered UAV designed and developed by University of Michigan students in conjunction with MIT's Lincoln Laboratory. Over the past two years we've gone through a…
