Default Hugo fpv osd dragonlink drone

Elmer's Foam Board has never been this mis-used. The Hugo FPV Cargo-Tran is my latest drone. This drone carries OSD, FPV, Gopro Hero HD and awaiting Dragon Link Long Range FPV system.



Made from Elmer's foam board, duck tape and hot glue. This is airframe two and many are building it along with me on my weekly live show. Yes the wing is HZ Super Cub for ease of building.

Airframe One...





Flight photos. The HUGO FPV Cargo-Trans fly's in any weather.

As usual more to come...Enjoy.

Most commonly asked questions:

1. Is the paper on the Elmer's foam Board? YES
2. Is there any carbon fiber in the wing? NO
3. How much does it cost? $25.00 airframe $101.00 electronics
4. How long does it fly? 10 to 29 minutes I use 2600mah and 5000mah
5. How much does it weigh? 3 1/4 lbs. AUW with gear 1.5lbs without
6. Where can I read more? Here... http://lipopilot.blogspot.com/2010/1...argo-tran.html

Almost left me speechless there for a moment.

Another cool design Lipo, and that super cub wing has some lift to it. That is quite the payload that it can carry.
