Hi,

I would like to announce the availability

of a new ready-to-fly UAV based on EasyStar.

Sold assembled, tuned and flight tested

(incl motor, servos, ESC, installed autopilot, wings not glued).

The user needs RC TX, 6ch RX (PCM or anything with failsafe is a must for UAV),

Lipo3S around 2000mAh, own video system or camera.

450g of payload or ballast INCLUDING the camera.

You can connect to 2 servo triggers dangling in the nose section.

The autopilot is placed under the wing (the safest place).

For advanced users, waypoint scripting is possible using USB console.

Log download and parsing software (export to GoogleEarth) is available.

Made in EU, worldwide availability.

The whole idea was to leave the front bay for the user:

you can put there your lipos, RVOSD, digital camera etc.

It has 2 independent trigger channels, logging,

USB connectivity with console.

The sales are starting soon,

you can watch the first official movies.

Site photo mission

High altitude, pinpoint autonomous landing

Long range

Repetitive

Flying a 3D pattern

Bad weather

EasyUAV uses 6DOF IMU autopilot and 5Hz GPS plus barometric altitude sensor.

This is a genuine design, not sharing any software nor hardware with anything else.

easyuav-manual

Features and more important documentation below:

flexipilot-advantage

flexipilot-features

flexipilot-installation

flexipilot-navigation

flexipilot-software

flexipilot-triggers

flexipilot-weather

It can land autonomously following full landing approach,

but due to wing loading and weak static thrust

of the small pusher propellers,

the takeoff must be manual.

Note precise track following and functional mission simulator. It helps a lot to confirm on the flying field that everything is set up OK. In the worst case, it will fly to customizable rethome zone and automatically return to takeoff point but the flight would be wasted.

The video shows benefits of mission planning using mission simulator on the PC connected directly to the autopilot built in the RC plane. You are sure what photos will be triggered and in what order the waypoints will be visited.

Using moderate flight altitude of 200m (always obey the local air trafic rules!) you can obtain the list of GPS coordinates from flight logs stored in the autopilot, using dedicated software. Matching the photos with GPS positions using free software gives accurately positioned images.

The photos are made in tight airspace, unachievable with other means except full scale helicopters, baloons and cranes... Path following precision, in particular, is limited to GPS accuracy. Unimaginable to fly such patterns with sensitive RC plane or full scale aviation.

Hi there.

I'm very interested in some more information.

Would we be able to use this on a RC Helicopter if required?

What is the likely cost of the full system?

Thanks.

i'm very interested in this system. couple preliminary Q's:

is this system airframe specific, or could the end user adapt it to other (somewhat larger) airframes?

have you conducted any tests on rotor craft?

when will it be available in the U.S.?

appears from the doc's there's no servo output for ailerons, so i assume it's strictly a 3 CH board (+ 2 trigger CH's)?

if above is true, are ailerons typically not used or are they mixed with rudder?

is there an "assisted" flight mode where one can fly manually with some degree of stabilization?
