Since I'm not satisfied with the 10 mm motor in the 30X-UAV I'm designing a twin. It follows a typical format and it is ugly too. It will serve two purposes - 1. determine the feasibility of a scale twin 30 mm plane and 2. It will test the airframe configuration for a camera plane which will be 2 times bigger. The camera plane is where the plane gets the bulging cockpit area. I wanted a design that keeps the camera above the battery in the event of a crash the camera will have a better chance of surviving. The intent is to have a slower EDF for video combat. I'm falling behind on this project and it needs to be moved up on my priorities list. I'll start another thread when I get a little further along. I should be starting to assemble the airframe tomorrow. Components became available yesterday when I crashed my 30X pusher into a curb on takeoff.
