I'd had a look around for a suitable vehicle to the X8 to be launched off,
and found this:
I wanted to go for something big & heavy to ensure it was stable enough to
carry the X8.
The vehicle's width is 310mm and length 550mm. Ideally I want the X8's
central body to be able to fit in this area to prevent any overhangs.
Tridge: How do these dimensions compare with the central body of the X8?
According to the reviews, it can get up to 10m/s with a 2S battery. I'd
expect to get even faster with a 3S battery. I believe the X8's takeoff
speed is around 14 m/s. We may just be able to get to this speed with the 3S
We'd also have to build a cradle of sorts on the vehicle for the X8 to sit
What does CanberraUAV think about this?
