The new Javelin Mk2 test flight

Posted on October 10, 2011 at 5:03pm 15 Comments

Finally a somewhat nice enough of a day for us to put another flight on the new Javelin Mk2. It's very windy however and cross wind too - I do hate Melbourne weather.

In this flight, I'm just getting the control surface angles and mixings dial in so we can input that into the autopilot. All live telemetry was recorded.

It flies really well and plenty of power and lift. Current weight comes in at 11kg with a design max gross of 16 - 17kg



Free OS UAV Plan!

Posted on November 13, 2010 at 7:30am 131 Comments

I designed this baby over the weekend for everyone to have if interested. It should be a very good size for most of your application. I can be built with foam, wood, and composite.

Name: RVOS v.1.0

Wing Span: 1.6m

Length: 1.1m (nose to tip of v-tail)

Max Weight: 6kg

Recommend 4 Channels (Aileron, V-tail, Throttle)

Power: .45 - .65 cu.in. or equilvalent electric power…


Laser Range Finder Hack?

I think we should hack this baby for a laser altimeter.

Hi stikmunkey :) I really love the aerosonde, must be a pleasure to fly. Yeah, my UAV is composite thoughout. If you get a chance to come to Adelaide let me know and it would be a pleasure to show you first hand. I forgot to mention that I've also been flying an XtremeStick, check it out on youtube; http://www.youtube.com/user/AvionaEvolution

The MicroAviona has plenty of power and penetration through the wind is great. I did a couple of tuning flights on Thursday and Friday on 15 knot winds with gusts upto 20 knots – no issues at all. Maybe I’ll post the Google Earth plot of the flights, but its not impressive because I was going in and out of autonomous - but the one I posted was all autonomous. I find the most limiting factor is that I can’t set the max bank angle much above 40 degrees because GPS starts to drop out to the point which navigation is effected.

Point taken on the standard rate turn,... but as you noted, as the bank angle increases, the nose will tend to dip, and some altitude is lost. I like taking advantage of this because this results is more elevator (because the autopilot is trying to maintain altitude), and the turn rate as a result increases - giving a nice sharp turn towards the next waypoint. :)
