  • What is the "wing span" of this potential UAV ?
  • Brought this up on the FPV fourm on Rcgoups but no one seemed interested so i dropped the idea. i built one of jaron's Uav wing instead.

    This plane may be small, but has some potential. It's reasonable price too. I have thought of converting this plane to something similar, but also like the idea of converting it to a pusher and putting a camera in the front. Has anyone else ever seen one of these or better yet flown one? I got it a couple years ago when a local shop closed (quiet moment for Hangar One Hobbies, amen)

    This one is called an Extasi and has been out of production for a long time.

  • I have no AUTOPILOT. I am training. I figured that before I invest in an OttoPilot, I should at least know how the bring the EASY* down safely and land without CRASHING.

    Was it with AP while tuning or training?
  • I am becoming an EXPERT-at-Crashing my Easy*. It still flies with Filiment Tape and CA glue.

    BTW how is the wings mounted, from the looks of the first pic it fixed with elastic bands but bare frame looks different but I can still see the dowel near the leading edge root !! Two pc wing will work too I guess. Good fit . Webie cam will sit nicely on the top of nose, GPS and FMA can sit tight on the top with Velcro mounts. This thing has potential with right size.:)
  • I love traditional wooden frames. My UAV project is also based on a wooden frame (Kadet Senior 2m span). finally, as long as one is able to land 100%, any frame can do. But in the meantime (I mean any time before the 100% landing ability is reached), foamies have certainly an advantage.

    Ah but it depends on the crashing part ;-)
  • Let's see how it sustains the first crashes:


    I think Multiplex foamies won't have very difficult time keeping their advantage!
