Ok, good to know !
Interested in maiden flight now :-) which camera will you put inside ?

Initially, I will use mine S110 for the first tests. If everything turns up well, I’ll buy a new Sony A6000 and give it a try.

I'll keep posting more as it progresses

Felicitaciones Pedro

Estoy muy interesado en tus avances y agradezco de antemano tus aportes, por cuanto estoy en la misma ruta. Inicialmente seria importante conocer los parametros iniciales del X5 Pro que configuras en Mission Planner para este modelo.

Olá Javier,
Estoy usando el traductor de google, a pesar de tener el portugués como lengua materna, mi español es muy débil. Por ello, si algo suena extraño.
No he establecido ningún parámetro en el Planificador de Misión. Pensé en partir de los parámetros utilizados para la antigua versión del X5 y hacer un autoajuste después. ¿Qué opinas de esto?
He colgado algunas fotos de él en esta etapa.

Pedro la idea de utilizar los parámetros del X5 me parece lo mejor, es un muy buen punto de partida para la configuración inicial del X5 Pro y posteriormente ir haciendo los ajustes correspondientes. Observe las antenas del receptor del RC muy pegadas al motor es mejor colocarlo al lado de la controladora pixhawk. El motor genera un campo magnético que puede afectar la señal. Sería importante ver la posibilidad de colocarle el sensor de velocidad del viento o tubo de pitot para despegues y aterrizajes autónomos creo? Aunque este último no lo he probado me parece algo muy interesante de evaluar con esta ala volante y en mi proyecto lo tengo considerado evaluar.

Tengo una pregunta. Donde conseguiste el circuito para disparar la cámara desde la controladora. Yo arme uno para APM, pero para Pixhawk estuve consultando para armarlo pero no logre que funcionara.

Importante que sigas colocando fotos de tus avances, yo igualmente arme un banco de prueba con la controladora y los sensores para configurarlos previamente antes de instalarlos en el X5 Pro. Te envío la fotografía.

I am using the google translate translator, to translate Spanish into English. So excuse me, if something sounds strange.

Pedro the idea of ​​using the parameters of the X5 seems to me the best, is a very good starting point for the initial configuration of the X5 Pro and then make the corresponding adjustments. Note the RC receiver antennas too close to the motor is best placed next to the pixhawk controller. The motor generates a magnetic field that can affect the signal. It would be important to see the possibility of placing the wind speed sensor or pitot tube for takeoffs and autonomous landings I think? Although this last one I have not tried it seems to me something very interesting to evaluate with this flying wing and in my project I have considered it to evaluate.

I have a question. Where you got the circuit to shoot the camera from the controller. I made one for APM, but for Pixhawk I was consulting to put it together but I did not get it to work.

Important to keep posting photos of your progress, I also set up a test bench with the controller and sensors to configure them before installing them in the X5 Pro. I send you the photograph.

Hi! Do you guys have ever modeled the SW X5 pro wing airfoil?

Could you please let me know the thickness percentage and camber percentage? 

Thank you!

@Jeff Riedjik:

Are you planning to hotwire an airfoil of your own? It would be interesting to do that and vaccuum form a pod. Let me know.

@Pedro: Have you flown it? What is the stall speed and autonomy? Have you thought about fiberglassing the bottom part (So it would last a bit longer?)

Cheers

Comment by Jeff Riedijk on June 1, 2017 at 9:08am

@Gustavo: I aim to achieve the maximum endurance (the longest traveled distance at speed 12-18m/s, with the same battery pack and performing RTL when battery is low). So that I'm running calcs on MotoCalc and I'm trying to make it the closest to the reality, that's why i need the airfoil or maybe the Cl and Cd of the SW X5pro wings. I have the idea that MotoCalc makes the work assuming a straight wing shape, and we know that the Cl is lower for a swept wing with the same area and span of a straight wing.

Pedro boa tarde!

como está a montagem da X5 Pró? Conseguiu embarcar a a6000? Voa bem?

GRato

 Hola Pedro y Javier:  Pueden comentar sus avances y logros con el X5Pro?  quiero armar un UAV  para mappeo y estoy revisando informacion sobre el airframe

Saludos
