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
Finally, we flew a latest plane - Primus III.
In one of test fly (engine stop in air) I set new personal glide record: distance 976 meters from 68 meters altitude.…Continue

Some time we need to work with metal parts. For example - motor mount.
Is a vibrationless motormount for MVVS 152 cc twin spark engine. I think it's possible made from wood, but aluminium look much better for me.

Monday - day heavy, as you know. So long as any work starts on Monday. So I have - apart from today started…Continue
First, load the fuselage to an inability to move. And…Continue
After years of experiments...No more tailless design.
In the last few days I make some test fly for short distance.
On ground station we use YAGI 16 dBi antenna without tracking system, connected to XBee modem with 5 meter cable.
For distance ~2,5 km system work very fine...
Mamadu take a new fin for better yaw stability.…Continue
This project has been started in october 2009 and its purpose is to build a full autonomous short range reconnaissance survey plane.
Currently Mamadu UAV used Paparazzy YAPA v.2 board, CHIMU IMU, Xbee modems for telemetry downlink and VTQ video equipment.
