Paradrone : a paraglider drone

here is my project : an autonomous in thermal drone.
No motor, able to use the only thermal energy to climb.
I started this project 2 month ago, I did the first glider prototype and pod:





And did my first try with non-autonomous flight :

Now the pod has cam and 2.4ghz emitter and I finished my interface computer->DX6i in order to drive everything...

next to come.

  • hope to have some paraglider to sell at the end of summer,
    Maybe I'll sell this one as an used one, but there is a defect I made in sewing that I would like to remove before (even if it is flying well with it).
    my website :
    Fertito Custom Design
  • Do you have web site to market your paraglider?
    When are you going to start selling it? When can we order?
  • I'm a hobbyist kite and paraglider designer and manufacturer, this one is my own design.
    here is some pictures of the building :



    I'm planing on building paraglider for sale, don't have a fixed price now.
  • This looks very cool!
    Where you have got your paragglider/parafoil from? And how much it cost?
