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

Hi,

I'm not sure if its the right forum or not, but I decided to post anyway.

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 and a nice composite version of this airframe would be enough for me. (2.5 to 3 meter 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...

I made one of these

This was a prototype. The deal was for 10 airframes but after more than 400 hours of labor designing and protoyping - when it came time for the money everything stopped.

I wont design for free again - but could put something together for you. How many are you looking for?

Thanks

Rick

Are you open to other UAV platforms or must it be that design?

If you only need one or a handfull, then just buy the Mugin instead. Very much airframe for the money, although a bit heavy. Firm I work for has both the Penguin B and a Mugin. Penguin is beautiful, but the Mugin flies well and is solid built.
