GEMINI ENDURANCE RECORD/FLIGHT TESTING/ADVANCED LONG RANGE FPV PLANE




PLANS AND KIT FOR THE VERSION 2 GEMINI AVAILABLE NOW AT OUR WEBSITE:

THE ENDURANCE OF THE ADVANCED FPV PLANE, THE GEMINI. TOTAL TIME ALOFT WAS 2 HRS 48 MINUTES, AND 30 SECONDS, BY MY COUNT. WE WERE PLEASED BY THE RELIABILITY OF THE PLANE, AND THE AMOUNT OF RECONNASANCE ACHIEVED DURING THE FLIGHT, WHICH WAS A SIMULATED SEARCH AND RESCUE MISSION. THIS TYPE OF ENDURANCE IS SIGNIFICANT BECAUSE, IT'S NOT JUST A STUNT. WE WERE CARRYING, AND USING A PAYLOAD THAT WOULD BE USED ON A REAL SEARCH AND RESCUE MISSION, THIS IS A SWAPPABLE PAYLOAD, SO IT COULD BE REMOVED, AND MORE BATTERY ADDED FOR ADDITIONAL FLIGHT TIME, AND REDUCED DRAG. THE LANDING GEAR IS ALSO REMOVABLE, BUT WAS LEFT ON TO MEASURE THE USEFULL ENDURANCE OF THE PLANE, AS IT MIGHT BE USED ON A REAL MISSION. IT IS TOO BAD THAT MANY COUNTRY'S FIRST RESPONDERS ARE NOT ALLOWED BY LAW TO USE THIS TYPE OF TECHNOLOGY FOR LEGAL REASONS HAVING TO DO WITH PRIVACY. THIS KIND OF DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGY IS UNDERSTANDABLY DIFFICULT TO INTEGRATE INTO, SAY NATIONAL AIRSPACE BY THE FAA, BUT WE ARE NOTICING THAT IT'S ABILITY TO SEE AND AVOID IS ACTUALLY VERY GOOD,A ND WE FEEL THAT WITH SOME SAFETY PRECAUTIONS, WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO OPERATE IT VERY SAFELY, AND WE DON'T SEE THE NEED FOR SPECIFIC PRIVACY LAWS TO GOVERN THIS SPECIFIC TECHNOLOGY, AS GENERAL LAWS APPLYING TO IT, AND THE USE OF COMMON SENSE ARE PRESENT IN ALMOST EVERY COUNTRY . WE ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO LIVE IN A PLACE WHERE WE CAN DO THIS KIND OF TESTING, AND WE ARE REALLY ENJOYING THE FLIGHT TEST PROCESS. WE HOPE YOU ARE TOO, AND WE HOPE THAT THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE THE LAWS, AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC, IN SHORT, EVERYONE, WILL SEE THE POTENTIAL FOR THIS TECHNOLOGY TO GIVE US A BETTER, SUSTAINABLE FUTURE, WHERE CROP YIELD CAN BE INCREASED BY BETTER MONITORING VIA UNMANNED SYSTEMS, AND SECURITY FLIGHTS CAN PROVIDE LOW COST SURVEILLANCE, WITH REASONABLE LAWS TO GO ALONG WITH IT, AND BENIFIT EVERYONE WHO IS NOT A CRIMINAL. WE ARE LOOKING FOR ALTERNATIVES TO POWER GEMINI, AND SEE THE POTENTIAL TO USE IT FOR A TEST BED FOR ALTERNATIVE POWER SOURCES SUCH AS PROPANE AND HYDROGEN FUEL CELLS, SOLAR, AND EVEN HYBRID GASOLINE TECHNOLOGY, AND WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE MANY MORE OF THIS KIND OF AIRCRAFT IN PRODUCTION, SO THAT THE MANY CREATIVE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD CAN FIND USES FOR IT. PLEASE LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW, AND ANY IDEAS THAT YOU HAVE ON HOW TO MAKE THIS PROJECT BETTER. THE IDEA OF SHARING THIS INFO WITH EVERYONE, IS THAT THIS PROJECT, AND THE IDEAS CONTAINED WITHIN CAN BE OPEN SOURCE, AND OTHERS CAN IMPROVE, AND ADD VALUE TO THE PROJECT. HOPE IT CONTINUES!

FPV FOR EVERYONE! WELL, ALMOST...
