So I have been working on this for a while now. It is designed for aerial photography/surveying. Carbon fiber flying wing, quite durable. Had an excellent vendor work on this (manufacturing here is much cheaper in India). Here are some specs:
Wingspan - 1.4 m
All up weight - 1.2 kg
Payload - 300 grams
Endurance - 40~50 mins ( Plans to experiment with li-on batteries to increase the endurance)
@Abhinav Pandey, the Titan batteries are great for endurance flights. They give me the best performance on my flying wing.
@Ravi. Here is may email - email@example.com
I am also based in Delhi btw.
@abhinav, I want to use it for general flying. I already have EPP and EPO flying wings. can you please provide your email.
What does it do that all the other flying wings out there don't...?
The objective is to sell it as a complete surveying product. Are you planning to use the frame for general flying or do you have any specific use case?
I would like to buy one air frame. from where can I buy. I am in delhi.
Not yet. Right now the focus is just to have a photogrammetry tool. Something like sensefly eBee. But yes with few modifications in the design a camera can be mounted in the nose for FPV flying.
That looks super sleek and awesome. Wonder if you can use it for general FPV flying?
It is two directional CF so specific strength is greater than that of aluminum. It has crashed from height of 15-20m on plain ground and has survived with just few scratches (it was a nose dive). EPP will not just bite the dust it will become the dust.
You are right about having a detachable wing design. I will implement it in further versions. I don't want to go for more than two pieces. It is (usability + aesthetics) vs portability, I have to find a middle ground.
How is its durability in comparison with EPP? Also a detachable wing design would be easier to transport.
