The Airplane

We are using a Banana Hobby foam airplane for the UAV airframe. The airplane flies very nice and should work well as a UAV for the time being.

The airplane’s wingspan is about 55″ wingtip to wingtip.

We upgraded to a six channel radio so that we could use channel five as the switch between autonomous and manual flight modes. The Hobby King radio set has worked quite well.
