    @ james
    good aerodynamic eye . yes that is a area that can be cleaned up somewhat . I plane on addressing this in later revs .

    @ Chris
    sorry a bit busy . ill get you something today .
  • Never got an e-mail from you. Good luck with your product! I may just have to buy one and give it a go!
  • Looks like a great little bird you have there. It would be nice to see a more aerodynamic backend though. I'm sure flight times would increase quite a bit with a bit more work on it.

    a few people for DIYD have picked up my airplane . I hope one writes about it here . also check evuas.com for build blogs as well . I will be offering a epp bodied version soon . Getting a cnc foam cutter together right now . I have several Ardupilots and will be integrating the two , and will share the setup files for it . we have plans to offer an ARF + aurdopilot ready to fly out of the box as well.

    @ anthony
    I built a home made vacuum former . google "how to make vacuum former" and you'll find a a lot of info . fairly simple really . i get my plastics from Tap plastics locally
  • Hey, i dont mean to take any sales away from u, well i dont have the money to buy a TechPOd anyways but still..
    I was wondering how and or where u get your plastic materials from?
    Do u shape them or do u get it shaped by a dealer?
    Im am interested purely for my school project! =D
  • So did anyone on diydrones pick one of these up? Is there a build thread anywhere I can follow? I'm curious to read real-world reviews.

    I really like the idea of a heavier-payload pusher design with ailerons, and a nose pod designed for FPV. I'm a bit leery of all the lite ply framework, but if it can land slow and easy, maybe I could make it last.

    45min flight time would be sweet. It's not clear from the pictures how the internal space is laid out, or how an Ardupilot/IMU+/Thermopiles would mesh with it.

    4000 mah 3S lipos will get you about 45 minutes , it can carry twice that .
