tech2 tech2_1 tech2_3 tech2_2Hey everyone!

I wanted to share some conceptual drawings of the next gen techpod. It will include a fully functional pan/tilt/zoom camera mounted on a stabilized gimbal with 360 degree continues rotation on two axis.

    If a fuselage upgrade, it’s nice.
    I would like to see stronger wings
    maybe a hollow fiberglass version, I dont mind a bit more weight
    just glide faster.
    Just tough

    What are the specs for the camera you are including on the PTZ mount?

    When will be released? It will be possible to reach a 4 hour flight with a good motorization 6S?

    What is the size (dimensions and weight) capable of the belly bay?

  6. Tim says:

    Does the whole front section roll like the Pteryx? Or is the roll stabilization achieved by a gimbal behind the dome? In other words if a compact P and S camera (Canon S100) can’t be installed within the behind the dome, could the dome be removed and the camera mounted in its place to achieve a roll stabilized downward facing camera?

      I’d love to know as well. We use Canon Powershot 230hs’s (visible and IR) on our X8 and MR’s, but looking for more range. Even simple roll stabilization would be great!

        No the nose will not rotate. For vertical photography, a small camera like a s100 can be mounted in the belly. the techpod 1.0 is more suited to the roll of ortho-maping etc. Techpod 2.0 is more geared for search and rescue type missions. The gimble in the nose will hold a sony block camera like the FCB-EH6300. This will allow a operator to scan and zoom a large area around the techpod as it flies.

    What type of foam? I’ve read great things about EPO foam being very durable.

      I have secured a CNC machine to cut the aluminum mold. I an squiring the equipment needed so I can produce full composite airframes. I thing the techpod 2.0 deserves wings like these.
      composit wings hope to have everything in a week and vacuum bagging wings on two.

    what about a fixed landing gear? something simple, like for hobbyking uav-3000.
