"Are you using pre-preg carbon fibre sheets that just need to be ironed on?
also how have you mitigated / what issues if any have you encountered with RF attenuation due to the carbon fibre shielding film?"
We chose X8 cuz of the performance it will give in terms of speed and flight time, also the spacious fuselage is one of the reason as we can experiment with more components/payloads.
We get the telemetry data in our Ground station during…"
Adding RTK sounds awesome. I plan to use it for crop surveying so RTK it's not my main goal but it might be helpful. I'm actually planning to add solar panels to be able to have way longer flights.
Anyway I'm a…"
Actually the purpose of going for custom built drone is to improve the accuracy of the results by adding RTK/PPK GPS in future and also to increase the flight time for more area coverage.
Keep following my posts and do recommend me on…"
"Hi Pragadish Santhosh I'm reading all of this from Argentina.
I find it really interesting since i have the same idea as to build a fixed wing for mapping. I'll keep on reading as you go forward with the project.
