  1. Tom. There is no need to to punch a hole in your watertight camera enclosure. Simply build a patch antenna and glue it to the inside of the box then on the out side of the box make an identical patch antenna solder the coax cable to the 2nd antenna and encase it in epoxy or some other resin making sure you have a water tight seal around the coax. Glue this external antenna to the outside of the box matching the position of the inside antenna, conect the other end of the coax to your 2.4 viceo receiver. Use a good 50 ohm coax, I have done this using low cost RG6 coax and sent 2.4GHz about
  2. Guys Check this out. See the list of Manufacturers on page 6. Dave. http://www.gpsworld.com/gpsworld/article/a...l.jsp?id=301693
  3. Terry Please go to http://www.klarichelectronics.com/kedrx-2401.htm and take a look at the demo video of Matt Klarich's Diversity Receiver, Matt worked here at AUAV at the time that he developed the first prototype. I have to say that the prototype was outstanding and his new versions are even better. Just so you know I don't receive any compensation for promoting Matt's product other than knowing that it will do the job for you. Dave Jones AUAV.net

  6. Delcam Go with the Klarich Electronics diversity receiver. I have used it and it flat out WORKS!!! there is no messing around with splitters and trying to keep the feed lines in phase. It's PLUG and PLAY. You just plug in it and it works, that simple. Dave Jones AUAV.net
  7. shedao In my early days of UAV work I have had a few of my UAV's do some aerobatics, of course it was unintentional but they did some very interesting aerobatics none the less. If you go to my web site at http://www.auav.net/ and look at the video of the The Newest Twin Boom Pusher from AUAV (click on the photo) you can see it doing some mild aerobatics, I was hand flying it at the time but I can't see any reason that it would not be possible to design a preprogrammed aerobatics routine. All it takes is the time and the will to do it and the most important parts is $$$$$. Dave Jones
  8. Guys The video of the newest Twin Boom Pusher by AUAV can be seen at http://www.auav.net/ just click on the photo. This aircraft will get an Ezi-Nav and video camera installed in it soon. Dave.
  9. Cyber-Flyer I agree with you that there are some that will interpret the new rule #9 claming that the PDC10 or my Ezi-Nav system is a violation of rule 9 because it can be reprogrammed to fly out of sight even though it may only have one way point that is well within the visual range of the pilot. Again Rule #9 states that No model aircraft shall be equipped with devices which allow it to be flown to a selected location which is beyond the visual range of the pilot. The way that I and ALL (well most) of my fellow club members see it, is like this. If I only have way points that are well
  10. cyber-flyer The following is paragraph #9 of the new 2005 Radio Control safety code. 9. The operator of a radio-controlled model aircraft shall control it during the entire flight, maintaining visual contact without enhancement other than by corrective lenses that are prescribed for the pilot. No model aircraft shall be equipped with devices which allow it to be flown to a selected location which is beyond the visual range of the pilot. The way I read it, now that the word autonomous has been removed we can fly aircraft that are equipped with devices that will allow for autonomous fli
  11. Guys Wile Maynard's electrostatic wing lever worked great under ideal conditions you need to follow up on what would happen if a thunder storm rolled in wile the aircraft was flying, I vaguely remember reading about how the electrostatic field of the earth would reverse causing the aircraft to roll inverted. If I remember correctly this is one of the reasons that it was never put into production for the common RC flyer. Dave Jones. AUAV.net
  12. Thanks Terry. I got it, and I am very happy with the review that the Ezi-Nav received in the article. They never get it 100% correct but it's close. Thanks again Dave Jones. AUAV.net
  13. Terry Could you please scan the auto-pilot article and email it to me I was supposed to get a copy of the magazine but it has not arrived as of yet. Thanks. Dave Jones AUAV.net
  14. LukeZ I could not agree with you more, I just cast my vote for the new UAV forum on RCGroups. Dave Jones AUAV.net
