About Me:
hobbiest electronic tinckering, aerospace systems craftsman in the USAF and RC fanatic
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
slowly but surely designing a recon UAV platform powered by 4 400mm EDF's (power generated by a kerosene powerd micro turbine/generator) equiped with 360 IR/color video, a modular system for mounting additional hardware. possibly a winch/claw setup and smoke screen generator later on down the road. all built on a carbon fiber/nomex honeycomb frame. the combined thrust from the EDF's will give it about a 20kg lifting capacity so it will have more than enough to carry/pick up large objects. GPS/smart phone controlled.
