    J-Twin: Scratch-built FPV Platform

    Introducing the J-Twin, a twin-motor airplane I designed and built specifically for FPV. I took it for its maiden flight today and I behaved amazingly well, just a click or two of aileron trim and it was all set. The center of gravity is approximately at 1/3 of the wing chord and it didn’t present […]

    Ov3rquad – Top of the Mountain

    High in the mountains of the San Fernando Valley in Southern California, I present my lastest FPV adventure. Filmed on a GoPro Hero 2 at 720p 120 fps on the always amazing Ov3rquad open-source quadrotor frame. I found a heliport at the top of the mountain with 3 helipads and I thought it would be […]

    Ov3rquad at the Park

    Check out my latest video from my latest multi-rotor platform, the Ov3rquad. The Ov3rquad is an open source spiderquad frame design, which I got custom cnc-cut out of lexan. It uses standard DJI 450/550 arms, 1000 kv motors, SimonK flashed 30-amp ESC and it is all controlled with an APM 2.5, which gives me gps […]

  • WEC Mark 2 – Test Flight

    WEC Mark 2 – Test Flight

    This is the second version of the WEC (Wooden Ecilop Clone). I improved the landing gear and streamlined the wiring by using a Quattro 20AMP ESC. The flight controller is an APM 2.5. I am using a 4-channel Frsky receiver in PPM mode soldered directly onto the APM to eliminate a lot of wiring. I […]

  • Gyro Stabilized Camera Gimbal – Ecilop Wooden Clone

    Gyro Stabilized Camera Gimbal – Ecilop Wooden Clone

    This is my attempt at a building an Ecilop, a gyro stabilized camera gimbal quadcopter. Construction is all poplar, CA and epoxy. This is the frame without any a flight controller, motors or ESC. I’ll be using the trusted ArduCopter 2.5. The original inspiration came from Aleksey Zaitsevsky’s design, the Ecilop Easy, pictured below. Also, […]

    On-board video – Kondor FPV

    Check out the on-board video I took on the Kondor FPV. It is really stable, but I have to adjust the thrust angle of the engine to avoid down-pitching when throttling.

  • Maiden Flight – Kondor FPV

    Maiden Flight – Kondor FPV

    This isn’t the real maiden flight…on the first flight I had waaaaaaaaay too much throw on all surfaces, and the camera upfront wasn’t secured so it fell right after take off making it tail-heavy. I managed to land it, I secured the camera and dialed down my rates. After that the plane flew very stable. […]

    Kondor FPV – Scratch-build airplane

    I started working on a new scratch-built plane, using some techniques from Ed @Experimental Airlines (mainly, the Armin wing), and some that I developed, such as interlocking-box fuselage. I call it the Kondor FPV. Its 40″. long with a 60″ wingspan. The front and back open for easy access to the gear. The design is […]
