"Sorry for the lack of updates (and lack of options file), weather has been beautiful here and I've been spending my time flying and working on other projects and not posting. I spent a little more time working with my gain values and have a fairly…"
I tried loading in the new firmware last night but my compiler is failing on the linking step with the 3.0 firmware. I'll look more closely into that in the coming days but I did have another very successful flight with the older 2.5…"
After spending the last year or so experimenting with the UAV devboard on my larger flying wings I decided to spice things up a bit. I had a funjet with a gopro mounted to the nose that I used for FPV. Last summer it took a nasty crash when I lost…
"Nice presentation but defiantly not something that going to last a considerable time in the field. I could see large use of this for oilfield applications (similar to my line of work) but some sort of landing net might be a better idea. I do…"
Last weekend I decided it was time to see how the stability and waypoint functions worked in the air. After flying around in manual mode (super easy to fly, definatly my most stable wing yet!) to achieve yaw lock I…"
Here is the successor of my previous wing. Basically the same as the old design with a new ABS molded center pod. It will be flying with the UAV devboard and now that the snow is finally melting in my field and I have the newest version of matrix…
Check out my blog post, I have a link to the build log of the wing as well as 2 videos of it flying around. I'll post more as I make progress with the devboard...but we have a high of -30C this saturday/sunday so no flying for me (and this is…"
"Arg, this is one of the things my wing was designed to do...unfortunately I only recieved my autopilot last night and have many many weeks of tweeking and tuning to get thru first...I'll have to delay my entry closer to T3, Round 38 ;)."
"Bryan, your attention to detail is not wasted here. I also read about the tail volume ratios but I ended up erroring on the side of to large. I am betting the washout you have added into your wings is what is holding your stability with small…"
"Wow I would have thought a flying wing would be super skiddish without winglets. The paths looks really nice. My devboard is on the way for my wing! I joined the google group and am looking over the beta code. There is a possiblity I'll hit you up…"
