Does someone here makes (or can point someone who can) custom Composite Airframes?

Hi,
I'm looking for someone that can make a nice composite airframe, like the penguin-B but not so complex of course. I made a 3D rendering of the Mugin UAV and a nice composite version of this airframe would be enough for me. (2.5 to 3 meters wingspan) Its for an UAV in my country, its an enviromental UAV in Amazon rain forest.



So please, post here if you qualify or if you know who does...

Making molds for wing is too expensive and time consuming.
Payload for bluespy is cca 3kg

We do various composit work from mold making to final layup...

Here is a small airframe I'm doing now. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1789022

We do all the foam cutting for wings in house and can even do glassed foam like some of the sailplanes.

cheers,
Scott A.

I designed the Vector P several years ago that is very similar. http://static.rcgroups.net/forums/at...587-24-vp1.gif We currently produce several other aircraft at www.hangar18uav.com

Reginak, Could you let me know how you get on. Looking for something similar for Wildlife project in Africa. Would also be interested in chipping in to get a couple of the Mugin frames in composite.

We do custom composite airframes of all types.

If you want a custom composite airframe, get in touch. We can do a one-off of your design or set up production of a limited number, or high volume production - your choice. We also produce our own aircraft, both fixed wing and rotary wing (single and multi rotors). Our fixed wing design is much more efficient and high performance than most anything out there under 150kg.

We have an in-house design team, CAD, CNC work, etc. Locations in the UK and the US (and soon in Canada). Which location will do the molding and layup will depend on where you are in terms of keeping shipping costs down.

See us here: www.rovsystems.co.uk

We don't do the composites fabrication but can do everything else to get your design in the air.

Also, we have a local partner who specializes in custom aircraft composites construction and has all the tooling and in house expertise required at lower rates. If interested I'll send your pic to them (do you have solidworks and catia design drawings?) and get a quote for you.

Hi Regina,

Your thoughts is the same of mine.
Right now, I need make a decision for an UAV with features similar a Mugin, and I'm not sure about H-tail or V-tail. Also, I'm looking for one build with composites, also... And I'm from Brazil too.

Wow, how many coincidences!

Good luck for both.
