Wendi Smol commented on Chris Anderson's blog post More Chinese UAVs hitting the market
"As we say in Germany: Die spinnen, die Chinesen!

This way any model is an UAV - I wonder if Graupner or Multiplex know that?

Wendi Smol commented on brett binnekade's blog post drop in hydrogen fuel cell for UAV's. 300 times more powerful than lithium ion!
"Hi

300 times more powerful than LiPo batteries??
I think you got the decimal point in the wrong position; 300% equals 3 times, which is quite an achievement.
Wonder how long we still have to wait for the cells?

Perhaps in another 20years, hehe."

"Hi, yes, it's a WM400 with a Medusa motor for 4s. It uses about 600W - 42A. That's good for about 12N static.
But I could perhaps go for a 5s - we'll see when it's done. With all the recording and drawing it won't get done before the spring. I want…"

Wendi Smol commented on Wendi Smol's blog post TERN UAV 3 details for the 3D experts?
"Colby, in my first blog post I have tried to explain, but anyway because I like fans and want to see how far one can get with fans. I think they are underrated for (small) UAVs.

Sarel, I tried to upload a DXF file in the blog post, doesn't seem to…"

"Hi Isobot

If I tell you that I (as a green engineer) have helped lofting the front end of the SAAC23 - including the racy windshield - I probably give away my age. One to one on blue covered steel foil. The "drawingboard was as large as one whole w…"

that's exactly what I will do in the next blog posts. In the end there should be enough information here (mainly in PDF) yo enable building of the plane in any version. For the time being I will concentrate on the first version with short s…"
