Autopilot assisted thermalling exploitation

Posted on February 9, 2016 at 3:30pm 7 Comments

Hello ensemble,

this is a flight done with the Proxima II, using a UAVDevBoard v4 for autopilot assisted thermal exploitation.

Telemetry on screen is done with DashWare. I had to create a profile for UDB to use the telemetry file with that program and had to adapt a few gauges also. The profile is attached, in the case someone needs…


New materials to build moulded planes

Posted on December 3, 2014 at 4:00pm 6 Comments

Hello ensemble,

It is sometime now I'm developing planes, mostly gliders, to suit my personal taste.

Out of curiosity I started to use some new materials to learn something new.

As a first attempt I did build two fuselages for a plank, called Trisel.

Those are respectively prototypes #5 and #6.

The first fuselage is done in Flax fabric (Eco_Trisel), two 220g/m² layers and a third one on the nose.

The result is a very…


DIY vario and head tracker

I build a couple of DIY electronic devices from open source projects.


I thought those could be useful to someone here on DIYDrones and they deserve a little visibility here too.

They are based on Arduino Nano and very cheap to build.

In this video I'm using both for the first time, with…


Hot wire foam wing cores one man cutting

Posted on March 7, 2012 at 4:00pm 5 Comments

Hi all, sorry if this is a little off topic, but sometimes I need to cut foam cores to build planes.

So finally I decided to put together a little tool to calculate the position of the fixed position of the hot wire, in the case of one man work.

This way it is possible to cut foam cores alone, using only one airfoil template.

Here is a screenshot :

It should be correct, but if someone find something wrong, please tell me and I…


Proxima II ! My most complex UDB4 plane. A tribute to Bill Premerlani

Posted on March 3, 2012 at 8:00am 10 Comments

Hi all,


after a lot of research, programming, setting and tuning, I'm proud to announce that my Proxima II went in flight.


It was already, but without any autopilot, only to set the right controls, trims, CG and wings angle of attack.

Now it is fully autonomous. This is the more complex autopilot equipped plane I ever…

Ricardo, to my knowledge the 868 MHz and the 2.4 GHz XBee are the legal XBee modules for Europe.
I just began testing and I can't tell you what the actual range of my test setup is.

Hi Ric,

Did you ever get your Ardustation to work? I was trying all week to use SERIAL_ ARDUSTATION from MP, to no avail, at all. Is yours working?
