UAV Glider

Posted by / Uncategorized

The battery life of quads is a bit dismal in its current state. I can typically fly for 7-12 minutes per battery, but that goes by very quickly. It also means I can cover much ground with it flying as a UAV. I’ve decided to branch out and get a glider. This will allow me to fly for 20-30 minutes on a charge, which will give me quite a bit more range. It will also fly faster in a less aggressive position, so it should cover quite an area. I’ve added the hitec telemetry sensors for the time being. Eventually I’ll move my ardupilot from my first quad into this glider.
