This is exactly what it sounds like. A flying wing that has no control surfaces, only motors. Only 4 motors to be exact. This idea and project was first discussed with Samm Sheperd. A fantastic human and truly an asset to any industry he touched. Unfortunately he was taken from us early on but will not be easily forgotten.
As quad people, we tend to HATE servos and moving parts. Wear on joints, stripped gears, adjusting trims, reduced reliability, wonky tuning of control surfaces...YUCK! LOATH them with a passion. Get rid of ALL that! This is no doubt a really hard challenge but with help from the Emuflight team, we may have figured out a solution that at least on paper looks like it'll work out. This project is a little more involving than others so we haven't gotten around to fully testing it yet but it's definitely in the queue and is probably our most intriguing project.
I've taking to flying my quads from the roof of my row house in the middle of the city because I'm losing my mind being stuck inside. And I'm looking at my wings and wondering if I can "land" one in my tiny backyard at 40 mph. Dear god make me a vtol before flu Corona/flu cocktail season, please.
A great way to tribute Samm Sheperd. My favourite video from him was the waterproof quad video, it was so cool
Hello. I need this. I am sure I'll give it 5***** when it is out.. if I don't die of anticipation!!!
