New design turbo ace spider and other design ideas
OK, this is a new design from the existing Turbo Ace parts bin. I will be building a strictly FPV machine for fast low flying. All parts will be on center line of hub. The only thing slung below will be the 450 skids and battery if unable to incorporate into shelf above skids.
This is a chute design I am working on for multicopter use. It incorporates a 60" chute. More to follow on this project soon.
The next pictures are of Hexacopter designs I will be building starting in mid-October of 2012.
UPDATE: This one is in construction and testing now. See my Hexacopter Blog.
The next picture is a design I am toying with that will use a quadcopter frame and foam construction to complete a UFO design. Should be fun.
Next Picture is a quad plane design I will be building using 2 flying wing kits I have.
Next My modified flying wing design for FPV use.
Next My Modified Blade 400 less the GoPro FPV setup.
This is my Winter Project. My "Peregrine" design.
New entry as a completed design for this years competition 2013. Hover Duration

New Design Airship for FPV and Observation at near earth altitudes
EXTENDED ON STATION NEAR EARTH BLIMP (EOSNEB)
This is a new design using a unique approach to build a slender blimp platform for near-earth exploration. I will be using individual bags for helium which will be allowed to interchange gas between them with valve network controller array. This will allow high altitude flight as well as low altitude use and conserve helium instead of venting overboard at high altitude. It will comprise of a CF frame in an exo-frame structure. The gondola below will incorporate 4 motors, fully articulating, and escs along with a full flight control system including gps, magnometers and OSD system. The cameras will consist of 10x visual zoom, IR cam and regular digital camera for single shots. There will also be room onboard for various atmospheric collection packages and experiments.
Construction is scheduled for early 2014 and testing stages will follow afterwards. Objectives are to test slender designed platform with capability to loiter in near-space altitudes from 20-25km for durations of 30-60 days. The reason for this altitude will be to test feasibility for a blimp design to be used to explore the Martian planet for extended periods.
The propulsion systems will comprise of electric propeller propulsion system which will charge from solar cells located on top and sides of blimp. There will also be an exotic power source onboard for charging batteries which will not be covered in the construction and testing notes due to patent possibilities hence the time holdup before construction starts.
The blimp design will have a very low frontal drag ratio in the 4.5-4.9 area allowing best overall volume of blimp lifting structure but minimizing the frontal drag component. The exoskeleton structure will allow the least weight while keeping lifting cost minable.
This blog will be updated from time to time as we complete and test different segments of the onboard and ground station instrumentation, flight control system and software programming for mission.
