About Me:

Background in mechanical engineering and wildlife conservation, and highly into aviation and computing - perfect preconditions for drones, isn't it?


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I see a big potential in the application of UAVs for environmental monitoring projects, as they provide an affordable and efficient tool for frequent collection of aerial data.

Pascal Fust commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Welcome to the new DIY Drones design!
"Another thing I've come across: when clicking on a link (e.g. "read all"), it stated me (at the first time) that I'll be "leaving Facebook"... A bit strange behaviour, though, as I stated, it happened only at the first click, not anymore later.…"

"Thank you Pierre for your work and the contribution to the DIY community!!
I really appreciate it, though I don't need any beacon yet (in Germany, as far as I know).

Kind regards, Pascal"

Pascal Fust commented on makeflyeasy's blog post Fighter VTOL 4+1 fixed wing
"Nice design. I am curious about the build quality of this airframe - the price is definitely very competitive. 12S power is definitely a big number...
How is this plane compared to the Freeman, which is smaller, lighter but almost the same price?…"

"Hi Andi,

Congrats to the young family and happy to get your feedback.
Cheers, Pasca

Hi Pascal,
sorry for my slow response, my little daughter was just born last week, that's why! :-)

Thanks for your interest!

"Hi Andi, congratulations on your achievement! I mostly like the aligning props...
Would you mind giving us some more technical details on the UAV, e.g. dimensions, weights, propulsion units, batteries, etc.?
Cheers, Pascal"

Pascal Fust commented on crystal garris's blog post I am back!
"Heard a lot of amazing performance from your TechPod - would have loved to get one on my own, but was too late for the kickstarter campaign. Good to hear that you're back working on long endurance capabilities of UAVs. It's really important to get…"

Pascal Fust commented on Kriszhao's blog post Is It Expensive to Build A Industrial Level Composite Material VTOL UAVs For Aerial Mapping?
"Beautiful design, and well designed setup ! It looks pretty compact in that case. Do you have some customers or any reseller in Europe?"

Pascal Fust commented on yangdaonline's blog post 2-Axis 30X EO/IR Gimbal For Fixed-wing VTOL
"Hi Yangda,in my opinion yes. Mapping with fix wing UAVs needs stabilized NADIR, not particularly yaw correction. "

Pascal Fust commented on yangdaonline's blog post 2-Axis 30X EO/IR Gimbal For Fixed-wing VTOL
"I am a bit puzzled about the setup of your gimbal, as I feel that the major use in fixed wing drones (due to the aerodynamics) would affect pitch and roll, not yaw.
Could you comment in this!"

Pascal Fust commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Why anti-poaching drones haven't worked well
"Somehow correct. Hyperspectral technology provides many advantages, though it is prone to challenges when it comes to wavelengths in the visual range due to colour variations."

Pascal Fust commented on Nicolai Valenti's blog post Developing Long-Range (600km) electric UAV
"Hey Nicolai,
not sure to fully understand your aerodynamics. Stall speed of 20m/s means landing at ~70km/h !! Are you sure that you want that?
Cheers, Pascal"

"Hi Chris, thanks for raising attention to the project.
As I'm currently working on comparable topics (detecting diurnal mammals instead of humans) in the same climatic environment, I am most interested in any investigation of the applicability and…"
