Peace Drone v2 (retired)

Here’s the Peace Drone, or as I affectionately call it, the Death Drone. haha It’s one of Ed’s designs build using Dollar Tree foamboard, hot glue, and packing tape. Check out Experimental Airlines on YouTube for details on his building techniques as well as details on this particular design. It’s a canard pusher that uses elevons on the main wing for control.

  • Servos are HXT900 9g for elevons (might be a bit on the small side) and pan, and a 5g HXT500 for tilt.
  • Camera is a cheap ($25) Sonny 420TVL board camera from eBay
  • Pan/tilt mount is the cheap fiberglass one from Hobby King
  • It uses the Immersion EzOSD
  • vTX is a 2.4GHz 500mW Immersion R/C
  • Receiver is a Corona 72MHz RP8D1
  • ESC is a Hobby King SS 25/30
  • Motor is a 3530-14 from Headsup R/C
  • I’ve been flying it on a 3-cell 2200mAh LiPo so far, but will try a larger battery soon

    Awesome, I do “semi-pro” aerial photo/video with some of my quadcopters to finance my addiction :)
