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
Ever wondered how to cut wood, plastic, thin carbon fiber pieces in order to make you drone frame, the ribs for your fixed wing plane or whatever you are trying to fabricate?

We are now sizing our medium aerial platform down, to get a cheaper product with an awesome flight autonomy.
It can be equipped with both DJI N3 or Pixhawk flight controller.
16" props are used for this smaller quadcopter.

There are an integrated cooling system and an automatic starter built in, it also has an anti-vibration plate.
The fuel consumption is quite low (600g/h) and the…Continue
After a few months of work, the first prototype is ready. In the video, we show some moments of construction and testing.
The propulsion system worked better than we expected, now we are focusing on a new generator that will allow staying in the air with 150 grams of fuel per hour (that's awesome if you think the weight at take-off is 5…Continue
Okay, there is so much stuff in the title so let's start with the generator on the prototype
This is the prototype, the generator is only for demonstration purpose because the generator at the moment is made from a nitro engine with all the connected problems (vibration and fuel consumption). A good thing is that I can add 4 kg of payload and still fly with this…Continue
In this month I've worked on my generator, it is composed of a brushless motor, a glow one and a diode bridge rectifier, as you can see in picture
It was able to generate at max throttle about 1.2 kW , starting the motor is difficult, I don't love glow engines (I only figured it now ahah) but the point is that my generator works and with some modifications to reduces…Continue
Hi guys, there is my video test showing my first flight time test with my cargo drone, I get 50 minutes with a 3s 5.2 Ah, if you want to stay tuned about the project sign up the newsletter http://eepurl.com/cUJnJr or just take a look to my site …Continue
Today I've made a new test of 3KG payload drone, I'm working on a cargo drone since 2015 so this is a great result for me, I'm also working on autonomous flight system for my drone there is the newsletter of the project: http://eepurl.com/cUJnJr
and here is the site:…
In these days, while waiting for the waypoint navigation hardware, I'm working on the new frame for my cargo drone, and on the new box, I'm also planning for 4KG PAYLOAD test, after the first of 2kg, I've now got 580kv motors so I have better a thrust, if you want to stay informed on this project please subscribe to the newsletter: http://eepurl.com/cUJnJr or take a look at my site: …Continue
Hi guys, in these days I made a successful payload test of my cargo drone (it's just a few seconds but it demonstrates that we can do it). Another news is that I'm working on the cargo box so I changed it with a more resistant one and now I'm working on the navigation system (based on waypoints).

Hi this is my little cargo drone, it can lift about 2000g and the maximum flight time is about 50 minutes, I also have a site so if you want just click the link, take a look and subscribe to the newsletter https://www.sandwichdrones.it/ …Continue
