Ex-pat canadian who has lived in New Zealand for 17 years. I'm a fisheries manager by trade and a keen UAV RC buff by interest. I've been thinking about using RC to do Airphotos for many many years and now have the time and resources to make it happen.
Hi there Scott, sorry for not answering any sooner. I've been away on hollyday to Sweden - been doing some kajaking in the Swedish lakesystem. Now about my Sr. Telemaster, unfortunately it isn't with us any more. I had a serius radioglich and it nosedived into my nabourgh's weatfield, the electronics and engine survived so I plan to get a new one this fall. Otherwise its nearly obvius - I'm getting Thomas Long Range System, he's actually comming by here on wednesday to deliver it himself. Talk about service.... Second thing I'de do is install Fowlerflaps so that I could realy float uppon landing and during AP. My servoes for rudder and elevator was mounted in the rear for balansing a bigger camera, I would do that again. I also made the whole aft section of the A/C detachable, for convenience when transporting. Only bye good servoes with metal gears. Thats about it for now, good luck with your build.
Best Regards Poul
