FPV with GoPro camera

 

 

GoPro FPV DLE-TR01 is presented by Angel Gendut Productions.

 

FPV Platform : DLE-TR01, The Sport Trainer

 

Tested Drive System :

  • Revox 2808-1900kv, 150W
  • Emax ESC 30A
  • Emax UBEC 3A
  • Revox 8x4E Prop
  • Emax ES08MD Digital, Metal Gear servo
  • Revox 3S-2200mAh (30C) Nano Tech

 

Tx/Rx System :

  • JR Propo XG-7, 2.4 GHz transmitter
  • JR Propo RG831B, 8ch 2.4 GHz receiver

 

FPV Gear :

  • GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition camera
  • Aomway AV Transmitter, 5.8GHz, 1000mW, clover-leaf antenna
  • Aomway AV Receiver, 5.8GHz, built-in DVR, clover-leaf antenna
  • Feelworld 7 Inch FPV ground monitor
  • Revox 3S-900mAh (20C) Nano Tech [ For AV transmitter ]
  • Revox 3S-2200mAh (30C) [ For AV Receiver ]

 

Design Review :

  • Flaperons mixing is implemented, along with 3 position switch for take-off (overhead hand-launch), level flight, and landing.
  • Wing loading is sufficient for carrying the FPV camera, the AV Transmitter and the extra Li-Po Batt for the transmitter.
  • GoPro camera acts as the recording aerial feed, as well as the FPV aerial feed to the ground monitor.

The Automaton

 

 

 

DLE-JW02-A2

        The Automaton

   

Wingspan                      : 1520 mm ( 59.84 inch )

Length                           : 788 mm ( 31.02 inch )

Height                            : 308 mm ( 12.12 inch )

Estimated A.U.W            : 1856 g – 2200 g ( 65.46 oz – 77.60 oz )

 

The automaton is designed to serve as a suitable platform for FPV/UAV mission. Besides the amount of payload carrying capability, flight efficiency also becomes the main priority in the design consideration. The FPV gears which consist of CCD camera, AV transmitter, OSD, etc; could be incorporated with the autopilot modules in order to provide aerial view through a ground control station in an autonomous flight mission. To achieve complete information, airspeed sensor, GPS, OSD telemetry and data link Tx/Rx should be included in the autopilot modules.

Stalling the Black Diamond


 

Flight test of the Black Diamond with lesser A.U.W and a little tail heavy setup.

 

UAV / FPV Platform : DLE-XT-47

 

Tested Drive system :

  • Emax BL 2220-07, 1200kv
  • Turnigy Plush ESC 40A
  • Emax UBEC 3A
  • Revox 10x7E Prop
  • Emax ES08MD Digital, Metal Gear servo
  • Turnigy Nano Tech 3S-2200mAh (35C-45C)
  • a roll of tapes is attached to the nose to act as a counter weight to readjust the C.O.G backwards toward tail ( a little tail heavy )

 

Tx/Rx system:

  • Futaba T8FG Super, 2.4 GHz transmitter
  • Futaba R6028SB, 8ch 2.4 GHz receiver

 

Design review :

  • The Airbrake mixing is applied too much upwards angle for the ailerons and elevons; causing it to pitch up at high angle, then stall.
  • The model feels underpowered for quick maneuvers and vertical climb.
  • Lesser A.U.W makes 65 – 75% throttle for effective flight.
  • It is recommended to implement the previous setup using Turnigy Park 480, 1320kv with 10 x 7E or 9 x 6E Prop.

 


New drive system setup on the Black Diamond

 

Flight test of the Black Diamond using a new motor.

 

UAV / FPV Platform : DLE-XT-47

 

Tested Drive system :

  • Emax BL 2220-07, 1200kv
  • Turnigy Plush ESC 40A
  • Emax UBEC 3A
  • Revox 10x7E Prop
  • Emax ES08MD Digital, Metal Gear servo
  • Turnigy Nano Tech 3S-2200mAh (35C-45C) (Either one is connected)
  • Turnigy 3S-2200mAh (35C-45C) (Either one is connected)

 

Tx/Rx system:

  • Futaba T8FG Super, 2.4 GHz transmitter
  • Futaba R6028SB, 8ch 2.4 GHz receiver

 

Design review :

  • The model feels underpowered for quick maneuvers and vertical climb.
  • 80% – 90% throttle for effective flight; caused high heat production and inefficient flight.
  • It is recommended to implement the previous setup using Turnigy Park 480, 1320kv with 10 x 7E or 9 x 6E Prop.
  • Airbrake mixing is implemented to alter the ailevators and ailerons position for take-off (side hand-launch).
  • The second battery acts as a weight to simulate FPV gears’ weight.
  • Proper D/R, Expo, travel limit and ailevators ratio mixing setting for servos is required for maximum performance.

More Flight Test of The Black Diamond

 

More test of the Black Diamond using 9x6E Prop.

 

UAV / FPV Platform : DLE-XT-47

 

Tested Drive system :

  • Turnigy Park 480, 1320kv
  • Turnigy Plush ESC 40A
  • EMAX UBEC 3A
  • Revox 9x6E Prop
  • Emax ES08MD Digital, Metal Gear servo
  • Loong-naz 3S-1800mAh (20C) (As counter-weight and used at 2 last flight)
  • Turnigy 3S-2200mAh (35C-45C)

 

Tx/Rx system:

  • Futaba T8FG Super, 2.4 GHz transmitter
  • Futaba R6028SB, 8ch 2.4 GHz receiver

 

Design review :

  • Airbrake mixing is implemented to alter the ailevators and ailerons position for take-off (side hand-launch).
  • The second battery acts as a weight to simulate FPV gears’ weight and it is used as a trial flight with low C-rating ( result in lower thrust and speed flight ).
  • Proper D/R, Expo, travel limit and ailevators ratio mixing setting for servos is required for maximum performance.
