@Eduardo, sorry email didn't get through - maybe got caught by our spam filter? You are welcome to join our mailing list, or just ask Stephen Dade, Jack Pittar or myself Qs here. Jack is the expert on the setup of our Mugin.

Cheers, Tridge

Thanks Andreew.

Here are my first blog post about MUGIN:

@Andrew, the camberra MUGIN is the version 1.

I look at mugin v3 and the wing is made all by wood.

The hinge use the ribbing terminal.

I think the the wing from v1 and v3 are different.

My Mugin V3 has arrived and its a humongous plane. This will be able to carry multiple sensors and additional fuel tanks. I an thinking of using the SullivanUAV generators to sustain electric power. Has anyone tried this set before?


May I ask where I can buy spare 22X8 props. This is the first time I will fly a gasser this large.

@Jerome ,

I purchased quite a few props of various config/size from hobbyking. 3 blade  pusher are little difficult to find but they are available there.

I have seen sullivan generators used in smaller airframe but am not aware of its performance. It was little bulky.

but there is one more choice called Jewel  onboard generators which is converted brushless  moto.  check that out.  I am trying to home brew this and looking for info on what modification is needed to make brushless motor/generator.

Yes, are you absolutely right, Giovanni.
Impossible to compare Penguin B and Mugin (any version). Swan-02, I never see before, in fact.
My thoughts about Mugin V3, are concerning converting for EP.

Btw, I've talked with Fabio at mundogeo connect 2013. Very good plane / systems do you are building, congrats!
