During the last month, a few hundreds of users from Italy visited Basic Air Data Website. Now the Italian language is at the sixth place among the others languages. If anyone is willing to translate the site, or other material presents on the site, to Italian then is time to contact us :-). We will readily setup new Crodwin content. –= Sarebbe ora di leggere un poco di Basic Air Data in Italiano! =-
We’ve written down a getting started article. That should help the new ADC users after the first firmware upload.
I dare you to find another DIY blog with so many insights into airplane technique. Simply amazing content. Starting from the idea up to the machining without neglecting installation and design. I rather say, from zero to hero! :-).
So, check out now What have I gotten myself into! blog.
Elmer CSC is a well proven open and free code for simulation, time back we posted some tutorial on the website. Via email, we have been asked hundreds of times about installation. Direct compilation of Elmer code is the best way to squeeze every resource from your hardware. At the same time, we are aware of possible problems connected to compilation.
Elmer’s creators provided a robust solution, that can be easily deployed almost everywhere, based on the use of a virtual machine. At a glance, you should install the VM file here and run in on your Virtual Box. You find detailed instructions here. Remember to tweak the VM after the installation to provide higher resources to simulation. I guess that is an easier solution to installation issues 🙂
This time the hardware seems sturdy and easy to assemble(under two hours to complete a unit). In the next period of time, we will test the ADC is particular applications and consequently, update the firmware. In other words, we will focus on software. All the resources, including all the info to DIYers, are posted in this link. It seems that we will enjoy a lot this unit during the next cold season.
A special thank you to GC for the current #2 prototype assembly and to MT for RC flying related tasks.

Swiss Air Data just released a new small commercial air data boom.
Check out the specs. It is made of composite materials. It is light, only 0.2 kg.
