We started to make a lightweight, high performance, long endurance UAV airplane for multiple purposes. The features will be, live monitoring, 3D aerial mapping, thermal monitoring ect. To make an extra challenge for our self we planned to make the air plane weight less than 1 kg and see how quickly we can make the plane.
3D print is that it allows us to print very complex, light weight structures for high performance by just printing the part in one piece.
