This Blog we want to start with a good quote:
It never seemed possible until it is done. (Nelson Mandela)
Last week in a meeting. A professor was saying that cooperation is based on trust, common objectives, altruism, generosity: a neat point!
The Issues to work on
We think most important issues for this sort of manned but also Unmanned Aerial Vehicles::
We have now ordered a number of test motors with Hobby King with the combination of timing belts; not ideal but relatively OK in terms of costs. Alternatives of direct drive are also being investigated.
We ordered the first prototype rotor and it will be a beauty as you can see. If you want to know where it comes from, let us know.
The team is still elaborating the timing belt construction and how to integrate it to the structure
The Air frame
As you can see the frame is a beauty. Marko did really a marvelous job! We all love it! We are now seeing how we can bend the tubes. The Alum is the typical aircraft alum of Aircraft Spruce with the quality of 60 61. If you have suggestions on how to do this let us know?
We try to cooperate with Astro Teller of Google Wing project, Chris Anderson of 3Drobotics, Elon Musk of Tesla Motors and many more. They have large networks and can open doors and support to open source networking communities in this area. They can set out Awards for this type of development. Any suggestion of you how to get in touch with them is welcome.
