Custom made UAV Airframe

Hello all,


We're releasing a brand new UAV airframe featuring super light weight glass fibre laminate construction with carbon fibre and kevlar reinforcement in critical stuctural area. All removable 3 piece wing, tail booms, v-tail and 2 large hatches allowing excellent access to fuselage internal area. All wing and tail surfaces are hollow composite mouding which you may install extra hardware in the central wing section.

The airframe comes with carbon fibre main landing gear and machined aluminium steerable front wheel assembly. All nuts, bolts and nut plates are mil-spec.

This airframe is made to endure the daily usage and handling using lesson learned from hundreds of hours operating other UAVs in theaters. You may choose to buy an empty airframe or with any of the optional items listed below

Alternatively you can also request a full carbon version which will be even lighter but be aware if use 2.4ghz RC gear in a full carbon airframe may not yeild happy ending!


Wingspan: 2500mm / 98"

Length: 1767mm / 69.5"

Gross weight: 11kg max

Control: Ailerons, Flaps, Ruddervators, Throttle, Steering

Recommended engines: 26cc to 50cc 2stroke or 4 stroke gasoline or equivalent eletric motor


- All control linkages and mil-spec wiring harness setup and installed

- High power Hitec servos or UAV grade servos

- Installation of engine of your choice with all fuel tanks and fuel system installed and tested

- Onboard electrical generator - please specify how may watts you want and voltage 12V or 24V typical

- Integration of autopilot - we use CloudCap Tech, UAV Navigation or Micropilot

- Navigation and Strobe lights (aviation grade)

- Transponder

- Fuel injected 2 stroke or 4 stroke engine

- Balistic recovery parachute

We're in Melbourne, Australia and we'll have our website up shortly with other products. Feel free to contact me at this time for pricings and options.

  • Please post a link to your website!

  • The airframe is avaliable now.

    The reason for the simple shapes is limit the number of moulds. Also ease of production and field interchangeble parts, i.e left side / right side switchable, ailerons are interchangeable as flaps, etc...

    If you want different shapes then please check our website, we'll update it with the larger Javelin airframe shortly. It will be a 5000mm wingspan but will also be much more expensive.

  • I must say this looks very nice indeed. Definitely on the watch list for the future....
  • Ryan, why are you building a square shaped wing if you are going to produce carbon-fibre structures in molds? (Which is what I guess from your description..)

    There should be significant improvement in handling and performance by optimizing wing shape.

    Similar question about fuselage shape. GRP is not working so well for flat surfaces, round shapes are stiffer...

    It will work anyway, just my thoughts about optimisation :-)
