Flying with an Air Data System Mon, 12 Nov 2018 16:00:33 +0000

We’re publishing here a link to a youtube video. No involvement with the cited company, however, the video shows pretty clearly what is intended for instrumented flight.

Let’s say the video is motivational. Indeed we need to complete and polish our DIY air data system :-).

Check out this free, DIY oriented,  basic air data projects :

Build your Air Data Computer! Wed, 01 Aug 2018 13:18:30 +0000 A few months ago we’ve tested the latest release of our air data computer, the Asgard. We’ve released it on Hackaday and we received positive feedback. You find all the information to start to build your ADC in this page.

3D printed parts printed by a third party service Tue, 24 Jul 2018 09:57:42 +0000 One of our users uploaded Basicairdata STL files to Shapeways online 3D print service. So far the print results are good with this service. Shapeways service can be handy for the people that are not willing to use the STL files or need a fast print.

The STL files are available on the dedicated Github repository. The STL files are online browseable, see for example the fixation flange.
