    Hi everyone ,
    Im wayne garris I have designed and prototyped a small FPV airframe . I made it with communities just like this in mind

    I am trying to raise the fund necessary to have the aluminum mold made so the techpod can be made from EPO and mass produced . please visit my kickstarter page and consider backing the techpod
    also get more info here hobbyuav.com

    I'm glad that you finally made it over here - we've been talking on FB for over a year about this airframe. PM'd

    BTW - I don't normally allow unsolicited advertisements here - but I've been talking with Wayne about this rig for a year at the least - when it stalled (seemingly) on another board, I even offered to buy the proto/design/rights and "relieve" him of duties. Like any smart guy he has held fast and is moving forward with the project.

    I will also allow the developments here bc 1) there is no better place and 2) he's ACTUALLY not selling anything (yet) - haha.

    Welcome aboard Wayne - and I'll talk to you later. J'son

    awsome ! thanks guys . the stall was to solve this problem

    it took more the 300 hours of compute time on my phenom2 4x 3.2ghz . as well as endless design - analyze cycles
    here is how i did the original performance estimations using xflr5 then used solid works for final drag reduction

    if you look closely at this picture you will see all the stats . wing loading , Cl/Cd etc .

    Welcome to another Washington guy! I'm just up the road in Woodinville. That thing looks very efficient. Great work.

    cool!

    did you also think about space for a HD camera? it's what I'm missing, as it would make a nice and well built video/photo shoot platform
