Q-Ship vs Raptor - FREE PLANS

by IC Aeronautics | July 6, 2019 | (4) Posted in Projects

To the Flite Test Community,

The SVVSD Innovation Center students were at it again this past month creating something we thought to be epic as two of our best graduates and move on.  Both Eduardo and Cameron are moving on to bigger and better things and we wanted to create an epic maiden for Eduardo's Raptor and involve Cameron in his final IC chase.  What better way then to create an 8' tall Q-Ship and have the Raptor fly through it, see full episode of whether the students were able to make it happen.

For all the build specifications, please see Eduardo's data card below

See here for Eduardo's complete build video.

Connor and Jacob charged with creating the Q-Ship

We were surprised how cool and big it ended up being.

During lift tests we got in the air but barely, with time running out in the summer, we had to improvise.

One last project with Cameron, going to miss our chaser!

All smiles from Eduardo, going to miss one of our top engineers.

Caleb seen here training with Eduardo.

Not a bad chase from our up and coming chasing pilot Rowan.

One of the best parts of our job, after the hours of hard work has been spent, getting to create a video montage!

Eduardo, the star of the film!

Believe it or not, one of our toughest challenges, launching from the building.

Having fun in the simulator.

You can see the Raptor about ready to fly through the Q-Ship

Practicing for graduation shots, but also a proud teacher and student!

As always, fun videos and a great concept. Love what your kids accomplish. Load that Q-SHIP up with helium balloons and get that thing flying. Might want to take a look a Tom Stanton's video on pendulum effect on drone stability. https://youtu.be/OYHCP3-mpxk
