Whilst trying unsuccessfully to go to sleep last night, I formulated a very simple no servo load solution that will also be easy to print in the right orientation. I will put bearings in the sear, and possibly a roller on the end of the servo horn to really reduce any friction. It will be easy to load, and will also add a touch of tension as it is engaged into position. The position/geometry is just conceptual, will do it on Fusion later and get everything right and make a prototype. Will probably mount the elastic slightly down one arm of the hex, so it pulls the strap well out of the way. Also will have a rod that goes through the body and the sear, that will be retracted by another servo, as a safety pin...Sorry about the drawing, my art didn't ever really progress after I left primary school :-)

Makes sense to me. It should be nice and easy to test on the ground.

Flew the extended arm monster hex today after totally rebuilding/rewiring it. Took every connector I could of it and re-soldered every joint just to be sure...you never know what is lurking underneath the heat-shrink..!!! It has buckets of power and is super stable, I didn't touch the gains on the Wookong, it flew perfect as it was. Crazy noise, I've actually not seen a multirotor this size fly before. Sounds intimidating!

Printed part of the release mech, but ran out of ABS filament, so waiting on more now. It is all getting pretty close... Looking forward to doing the first test drop with a Funjet.

I also realised that it will allow me to try some insane props on the electric Fusion, as the very over-square props are risky on the vert launches. So may be able to push the electric record further without spending a fortune on motors/esc's... Win-win!

I guess one plus side of this Snake-flu that is getting on top of us, is that self isolation does give one a chance to attend to some of those builds that are buried in the shed and we never had the time to get to... Maybe it will reinvigorate the build fever that used to be such a big part of the FPV community at the start.

Had my record beaten today!!! First time anyone has posted a faster video for 7 years! It is a good day!!! This makes the jet project even more exciting, and puts the pressure on! He is getting a lot of hassle for it being in a steep dive at the time of the highest number, but I am happy that it is a higher number than mine got to. I am pretty sure mine is about 60kmh faster on the flat, but that is not the point, he got a higher number with plenty of sats locked:

Maybe there should be 2 records, 1 unlimited, the second staying within legal height limits  :D
Looking forward to your flights.

Jeez, just a shade under 275mph is insane for a foam jet.

Interesting that he got it when the battery had been used as well so wasn't running full voltage...

Good luck Rupes!

Looks amazing.
Are you going to need a hex pilot as well as yourself to fly the jet?

Can't you lift off the hex, get to position then hand over the tx to your girlfriend to just press the button?

Maybe there is some sort of buddy box you could setup?

Interesting, I like your project, more solutions to be found  :D
Keep up the great work while we all avoid the virus  :)

I could take the hex up leave it in position hold, put the plane goggles on and hit the release button all myself...but, there is always a chance the hex could have a failure, and if it is falling I would want to abort and drop the plane to try and get it away before it all comes crashing down... So best if I have the plane goggles on the whole way through... Actually thinking about it, I could just pilot the hex from the plane FPV system all the way up to release... that would work! I could just pull the RTH on the hex once I settled down with the plane.. It is going to be proper exciting no matter what though :-)
