About Me:

Shade tree engineer. Wing Nut 

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

The pendulum has swung on this subject. At first because my RC skills stank, I wanted an auto pilot to do a lot of the wings level work so I could take pictures etc. My RC skills improved so I didn't see a need for the auto pilot any more. As time passed I see a need for long range unmaned support on many missions rolls as civilian interests see the value of low cost high endurance platforms become available.

I left the tittle wide open intentionally.  This is something that is beyond my skills.  One of the things that we all struggle with.  If you want two cameras, you have to have two transmitters or switch betwen them.  Telemetry from your autopilot,…

Robert Palmore replied to Andy Creighton's discussion 98" ProJet MQ-9 Reaper -- antennas for fully autonomous long-range missions?
One of the first things that pops into mind is why do you need antenna coverage if your going full autonomous?  That aside, there is a way to get some very good range with off the shelf stuff. Like putting multiple flat panels together using…"

One of the things that we fight in electric flight is the efficiency of the electric motor. Even the good off the shelf stuff is frequently not at its best as a trade off in manufacturing cost and longevity of a product. This fellow at fly electric…

"Wasn't there some young fellow not too long ago who had a similar tube launch rpv idea?  Sorry my memory is quite bad. It looked quite different but the basic concept was very similar.  Any web links to the company?  Additional specs?"

"Chris, I've had this thought for some time when it comes to programming max rates on a gyro. In the past, specs show the accuracy (fine) drops off as you put in a higher rate. Would it be practical to have two setups where one is Course has a higher…"

"serin parallel out, makes sense to me. Use the arduino as a demux. Cool. To the sound track of Oliver's "Food"
