STM32F103C8T6+Mission Planning?

Started Jan 20, 2015 0 Replies

   Hello All,     This is my first post on DIYDrones though I have been active on MultiWii forums for a long time.  I have been working on a very low-cost, aerial mapping UAV and documenting my…Continue

"When researching and reading accounts, like the one above, I tend to branch off and look for other connections. Jack Headley lived in Rancho Palos Verde (RPV or PV). When he and Kevin Flynn were slope soaring models, it may be that they ran into…"

"Found it and more. Outerzone has the Northrup version from Flying Models.. http://www.outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=3842 The RCM version is referred to as the Zoegling Primary Glider. December 1976. Here is the first page with a bit of…"

"In my Jack Headley research I seem to remember a 'basic' or 'primary' model like the type at the start of this post. I have looked at so many articles and models, scanning through pages of old magazine, some are beginning to…"

"   The Glider might not have taught them how to fight, but it very well may have taught them how to stay alive. Beyond their incredible combat records, pilots like Adolph Galland are also extraordinary in that they SURVIVED THE WAR!…"

"If you are to discuss the skill level of the Luftwaffe pilots, the glider is not the only consideration. Remember they obtained combat experience with that business in Spain. -=Doug"

"Fascinating coincidence that I just purchased THIS off eBay. In case the link expires.. which they do on eBay... here is a snag from the listing. -=Doug"

Andrew Jawitz commented on Matt Wallhead's group New England UAV user group
"  An interesting concept came up in the comment thread for my recent blog post that it might be helpful to identify specific locations in every region where UAViators can experiment safely and meet others with similar interests.  Is there…"

"   Considering I'm in the midst my own flying wing project, the aerodynamics discussion is going to be majorly helpful, so I don't want to discourage anyone from adding further valuable insights on the matter.    …"

Andrew Rabbitt commented on Andrew Jawitz's blog post Making History- The DIY origins of the Luftwaffe
"I should also add that wing sweep does really bad things to the stall characteristics too, further limiting the minimum speed of a swept-wing Nürflugel.  Like Wayne, I have been CFD'ing my way towards a flying wing design of my own…"

Andrew Rabbitt commented on Andrew Jawitz's blog post Making History- The DIY origins of the Luftwaffe
"I'm with Wayne on this one.  A Nürflugel isn't (necessarily) more efficient than a conventional aircraft because the maximum practical lift coefficient you can achieve is somewhere around the 0.7-ish mark.  There's also…"

"> I have read in a number of sources that the Ho IV suffered from stability issues due to an unforgiving C.O.G. What I remember reading was that pilots complained about yaw stability or skidding in turns, something like that but my memory is…"

Gary Hethcoat commented on Andrew Jawitz's blog post Making History- The DIY origins of the Luftwaffe
"I second Andrew's comment.  This is just Aerodynamics 101 stuff.  A pure wing (Nurflugel) is more efficient by definition because the airframe is entirely devoted to generating lift.  Fuselage and tail surfaces generate what…"
