building a 144 wingspan pusher. close to the predator but with a different airfoil. used a foam core and glass. same on fuse. 50cc 2-stroke. jr radio. 2 servo cam.
1 gal. fuel. going to use the drone to take atmosphere readings before and after storms track through my area. project requires out of sight flight wich is illegal. however, i live 20 miles from anyone and anything. would like the range for comfort and direct reading of tel and sensors. around 15,000 feet.
everything is done yourself. i have been building airplanes all my life and this is the best way to go. i use 1/2 2lbs pink foam. each rib is cut one by one and glued together with wood glue. using 1/2 oak dial's. time consuming but in the end it boils down to the fact this gives me no limits on dezine.
