The air data computer Asgard is out. It is a unit designed for DIYers, size and weight are compatible (fixation tabs have the same dimensions of standards servo tabs) with low-cost RC applications. Some aspects will be changed as per users feedback. Be sure to checkout the project…Continue
Some time ago we presented a free software mini-suite that can be useful to support UAV based survey tasks/general purpose operations.
The new Basic Air Data GSP Logger App release was tested at Centre for Geoinformatics, IIFM, Bhopal, India; the results were…Continue

Figure 1: Mechanical Air Data Boom tested in 4x4 tunnel
Air data can be acquired by mean of mechanical probes protruding from the airframe. In many cases was also possible to find a placement for the probe that is out of the body modified airfield. Very common is the nose mounted air data boom. In Figure 1 you find one mechanical …Continue

I report some of the work that I/We did, within a Open Project, on a removable Pitot Flange.
After some "design-fix-test" iterations the new removable Pitot flange passed the pressure test; test pressure was 8 barg.
