HI! Don’t worry! Things are happening behind the scenes but you don’t know about it 🙂
It seems that I do not fly as much as I used to – well, on the personal agenda it dropped a bit due to bad weather most of the time, but for other areas things are moving along.
To start I am about to move to a brand new house. They didn’t even started digging for the foundations yet so things are going to be hectic with selling the current house and such.
In the new house I will have better areas to work with my RC-things, a proper workshop for instance will do huge difference to me as the current one is a shed/storage.
Plans are moving along with my UAV-planes as well. Since purchasing yet another Skywalker I have been planning for best uses of it. This one will be purely dedicated SAR-missions and the other one will be dedicated Aerial photo /mapping.
For both I will use the Taranis radio with a 433Mhz link.
Cameras for different needs can be mounted on both of them with a modular design features. For aerial photos I will use the Canon Powershoot SX260. I can of course mount a Gopro or similar HD-camera and best of all, I can also mount thermal cameras for SAR-missions.
My goal for this will be to relocate to new house (by December), get the workshop done and the office inside as well as lots of things happen by the computer and the desk.
Then I will proceed the builds on my planes to get them ready for testing by the end of spring. I don’t thing I have to do the same rigorous testings as I did with my 1st Skywalker or with the Bixler1 as they were done to test lots of equipment. The new planes will use the same equipment’s so it is things I know work.
Anyway….Autumn is getting closer and closer, today was below +10 degrees celsius in the morning. Soon the leaves will turn fiery red/orange and yellow all over and it is time to go out and shoot some videos with the 250 Quad.
