This was one of the tests on our heavy drone (14+ kg).
We plan to sell the generator separately and also a complete hybrid drone system with a 4 kg payload capability with 2+ hours of flight time.
The generator specs are
weight: 3.6 kg
compatibility: compatible with any aircraft with a power consumption of less 2000W,…Continue

Hi gang :)
What can I say?
Time passes, progress does not stop. And I finally switched to complex composite structures in my planes. Now balsa and film are reserved only for my hobby models ...
Time to move forward!
If someone needs help or professional service - please contact me.…Continue

As you probably know, the increasing temperatures as created a generation of wild fires that are destroying the forests of California, Chile, Spain, Asia, and other different dry areas of the world.
With this problem in mind we have created this hexacopter to perform Automatic Aerial Restorations. We used digital fabrication…Continue
Airspeed sensors have been a major concern for both manned, and unmanned aviation alike. Yet almost every fixed wing or VTOL vehicle is dependent on it. So what is wrong with these sensors and why are they used?
A standard airspeed sensors consists of a pitot tube, a temperature sensor and 2 pressure sensors. The pitot tube has 2 ports (holes), one at the tip (like an injection needle) which is called the dynamic port, and…Continue
Maiden flight and PID tuning of a 3" microquad (Arducopter)
Hello UAV enthusiasts,
I recently created a slide deck on the topic of sensors for attitude estimation (i.e. gyroscopes, accelerometers and magnetometers). In these slides, I review
The methods and concepts contained in these slides have been "battle tested''. That is, these are the methods and concepts I used…Continue
This is our new concept for a long-range fixed-wing UAV.
The benefits of having a long-range UAV in search and rescue operations as well as in urgent transportation of blood and medicines are astonishing in terms of costs and effectiveness.
Surveillance operations and mapping are also two sectors where a similar air vehicle is essential…Continue
