1/5 scale FPV MQ-9 Reaper and Soon Autonomos flight

Hi all,
i throughout this and next year i will be Designing and building a 5.2m (17ft) MQ-9 Reaper using the ArduPlane board For the UAV Control Side of things.

I Have given myself 1 year to complete this project From Planning to Finish
so sit tight in For the Long haul....
also i have attached a Screen Cap Of the Cad plans in Autocad (measurements are in mm)

This 1/5 scale General Atomics Reaper UAV Will be optimised for 3 things.... Loiter time, payload Ability and if and when needed All out Speed.
Also for less Drag i plan to incorporate semi-scale Retracts
as i am Currently halfway Through Designing this In CAD i am able to measure internal payload spaces ...

The payload bay of the Reaper is sized to carry an 10,000 MAh of Lipo's
a second Video Tx and secondary Rx (to pan and Tilt the cameras) and a GPS/OSD with Pitot tube
alongside a BEC and 2200mah 2s Lipo

I have attached

Though i will need some advice for servo's and the Motor
Servo wise i was thinking some 9g digi Metal gear (good enough or do i need more Grunt ?)

Motor wise i need something to swing a 3 blade 19x4 or 19x6 prop on 4-6 cells for long sustained periods of time

any ideas?


P.s im looking for around 3-4 hours of loiter time initially (6 hours with the Aditional Flight Pack in the Payload bay )
Would 20,000 Mah be Sufficient ?

This project will never get off the ground, you don't have the rc background and flying experience to undertake such a project, heck you cant even finish a depron MD-11 for another member.

This CAD work is the same as you have here, you cant hide buddy

Keenan, you've still lied to me on Skype about this project, I don't get why you can't even just tell me the truth?

You said 'yo' 5 hours after I tried talking to you, plus you know I'm usually on my phone an it doesn't give notification of messages received. After 5 hours, you can't expect me to know you're going to reply and stay checking every 5 mins, especially when I'm at 6th form all day. As soon as I saw your response I messages you back but still nothing..

Hey Keenan,

Just wondering if you would mind clearing some space in your PM inbox as I would like to send you a message regarding this aircraft.

Thanks,

Matt
