Orange Hawk VTOL Update December 2013

I've been several months under the radar, being pretty elusive. My apologies to all who are or have been hoping for more information. I noticed this morning that there have been a consistent number of views of my goofy Introduction video (See here:…


Wired Article on the AUVSI Domestic Drone Meeting

Posted on February 13, 2013 at 5:43pm 0 Comments

From Wired:

For a day, a sandy-haired Virginian named Jeremy Novara was the hero of the nascent domestic drone industry.

Novara went to the microphone at a ballroom in a Ritz-Carlton outside Washington, D.C. on Wednesday and did something many in his business want to do: tenaciously challenge the drone regulators at the Federal Aviation Administration to loosen…

What is the patent for?
Is it the project you alluded to last month?

It was a hexagonal section I cut out from a black trash bag. I think it was 1 meter edge to edge. The shroud lines were regular nylon kite string. Each of the six lines were 80 cm or so long. I used a hexagonal cardboard riser about 4 cm edge to edge to zip down the lines during deployment. If needed, I can dig it up and take pictures/measurements.

Nice work, really nice work. When I first was this I was so excited because I was making the exact same thing. Same concept for the most part. Wow, very cool, now I have a great post to help me through the process of building it. Currently I have not built anything, as I have probably spent all of my 16 months designing my version of the orange hawk. I had a quick question for you, what servo did you use to move your motors? I have been trying to find a correct servo but was to confused with which one to use. Maybe we can exchange notes on the designs. I think I came up with a way to minimize the amount of servo's used to increase the efficiency. Really nice post, and I deferentially am looking forward to future posts.

Hey Stephen Carlson,

 I have made a VTOL tri-copter UAV based on Arducopter code.Now my tri-copter UAV can realize  manual takeoff, transition,level-flight,and vertical-land.

 I am trying to change the arducopter code to realize the  tri-copter UAV auto flight tracking waypoints, but the arduplane and arducopter codes perplex me. Which Arduplane codes should be transplanted to the arducopter codes?

  If i using two APM board, is it possible? how they connected?
