Let's Make Robots!

Full hand made UAV

Fly, autonomous

I don't really like to talk a lot about what i make, but i can answer all your questions that you might ask in your comments :)

here are the photos, self explanatory :)

Personally I wouldn't be to optimistic of getting this plane in the air. But for all i know you might have years of experience with  RC planes? If not i would have started with a proven concept RC plane and  worked from there.

I think you have a lot of repair and gluing in front of you :-)

The plane has a weight of 800 grams with the motors but without any on-board electronics each motor can pull 750grams, odds are, its going to fly :) besides, its being designed with the help of the local RC club :) they are confident that it will fly :)

I have been building airplanes for 15 years now, realliy like yout proyect..... but:

 

why do you make the wings that way, they are not strong for a fly, they need reinforcements, where are thre servo pictures? i cant see the controll horns........ 

does it ballance? where does the batteries go? the tail controll surfaces seems to be little....

How are you going to controll it?

you need more support in the body of the airplane in the part that holds the wing...

how did you make the wing profile............ i can help to design a better one.... look for the NACA 4415 profile for a start

i have so many tings to ask....

 

I was a bit curious about the balance as well though depending on where the battery and other electronics are located, I could see it working. If he can keep the components secure in a specific location, this could work....

Reinforcing the wings at the body would be my concern as that appears to be a weak point...

we will chit-chat on Facebook :)

Tell us about the autopilot system. What will you be using and what will it do?

Custom designed board based on arduino. the basic MCU-gyro-accelerometer-GPS-pressure sensor-compass etc etc

ground link will be established so i can have direct communication with the MCU and of course capability of flying it with normal RC gear.

Im just waiting for the plane to become airborne with normal RC gear for me to switch and work on the avionics :)

Quite Impressive!

Looks like it could very quickly switch directions with that propellor setup - is this the idea or are you just sharing the load over two brushless motors ?.

Thumbs up for the very neat "Balsa" construction.
