"We have not fully loaded the test model to 17kg. All the data so far seems to be within 10% of what test we have done.
We might make some adjustments adding wing tip washout but it won't be a new version just minor changes. I am very happy with the…"
"Young Josh at Aeronautical has recently got a HDR video hack working nicely using http://www.magiclantern.fm/ Magic Lantern, the results are stunning. There's an example here not by us but i think you can get the…"
"Getting from A to B
The second most efficient animal at moving it’s self is the albatross it can travel long distances through a process called dynamic soaring, which involves repeatedly rising into the wind and descending downward, gaining energy…"
"I missed the link, see it now. It would be good to spend a bit of time on some of these components how handy would a VTOL drive be. Here's the other direction it can go in and they are just renders! Up and sideways....."
"We don't need the net.
A short story (Plug!!) of the development of Aeronautical's Presidio.3 UAV aircraft wing. Includes some early aerial video and follows the development of our very young company including our teenaged pilots that assist in…"
"I found where to get the Range Video http://www.rangevideo.com/ and i do think that they have done a great job, price, parts and design all good and it has a net option just in case you’re a bad catch."
"What we got out of this was better control surfaces that enabled the existing prototype without the VTOL, to better brake on a landing it ment moving the GC back and compensating with the control surfaces this gave the wing a 1:1 gliding controlled…"
"The last post looked like glossy BS, I’m surprised no one said anything. Here a shot of the required control surface movements as well as using off the shelf quad stabilizer. Again a bit crazy. Also purposed was a ground based power supply for…"
"This was a crazy idea that we actually had working, using 4 small turbines running at 200%. No components were expected to last more than 4 mins and only need to function for 15 seconds at a time. The test didn’t use a wing but a platform under the…"
