DIY - VTOL Drone Ultralight

Post by onlinebarnstormer » Feb 17 2018 5:00pm

Here is the napkin plan for my home made VTOL Drone Ultralight. I currently have a 10 HP Mac 101cc gas engine mounted behind Foot Launched Powered Ultralight. I am replacing power system with two electric motors that will be installed inside each wing. I will be using R/C Technology to control electric motors so I can fly it as a R/C model drone and manned (200lb payload) drone. My goal is to test flights at my local AMA sanctioned model airplane field using RC propulsion system from a EFlite XVert VTOL R/C electronics. I hope to fly at Oshkosh 2019. I am searching for two used 80cc electric motors, ESCs and batteries. More details are on my blog (SEO spam link removed). I can be reached at 515-250-1143 if you can sell me two used 80cc electric motors, ESCs or batteries.

I believe the prop is a carbon fiber 3010, and the motors are either 12090, or 120100. I do not know the exact brands of either. Freerchobby sells these style motors (MP12090/MP120100) and ehobby has the equivalent (EP12090/120100). I hope this info gets you in the right direction.
