Vulcan UAV Skyhook Airframes

Postby robone » Thu Aug 02, 2012 7:12 pm

I have just brought into South Africa the Vulcan UAV Skyhook Airframes.

Just a brief description :

The SkyHook Series super heavy lift airframes are ideal for professional aerial photography, surveying, security and other commercial applications, as well as the serious hobby flyer.
Made from high grade Carbon Fibre and Aluminium alloy, they are not only amongst the strongest and stiffest airframes available, but also can be easily reconfigured to any airframe layout using the same few parts, including Y6, I Quad, X Quad, I Hexa, X Hexa, X Octo and V Octo.
Standard and high clearance landing legs are available which can be attached to any arm according to preference, and moved along the arms to allow an uninterrupted camera view.

One of the first things considered during the design of the MultiFrame, was that there was no good reason for the user to be stuck with one particular frame layout, chosen at the point of purchase and before they have had a chance to try that configuration and decide if it is suitable for their needs. So for ultimate flexibility, the MultiFrame uses the same few parts in all frame configurations, allowing the user to change their frame at any time, simply by moving, adding or removing arms as they wish – and without losing the orientation of the frame centre section, battery tray and standoff plates, thus avoiding a lengthy complete reinstall of all onboard systems.

And it is well priced. More information is available on http://www.multirotor.co.za

Cheers

Build your own Vulcan design

Postby robone » Tue Aug 28, 2012 3:23 pm

The great thing about a Vulcan frame is that you can build your own frame.

Buy the parts individually. You can start with a 650 Quad, or smaller, and easily move up to a 1200 Octo without incurring a large expense, because you are reusing the core parts. No need to replace everything…Just add on.

At the moment I am in the process of building a 650 hexa using the following parts:

Frame Centre Plates x 1 :Cost R1080
Stand Off Plate and Battery Tray x 1 :Cost R360
Motor Mount x 6 :Cost R720
Arm 500 x 3 ( I will cut the 500 arm into two sections) The holes are spaced at 30mm centres and everything is designed around this hole spacing:Cost R402
Standard Leg 178 x 3 :Cost R321
Bolt Kit x 3 :Cost R162

Total cost R3030

Just to give you an idea, to upgrade this to a 650 Octo the additional cost will be:
Motor Mount x 2 : Cost R240
Arm 500 x 1 (Cut into two sections) : Cost R134
Standard Leg x 1: Cost R107
Bolt Kit x 1 : Cost R54

Total Additional Cost R535

To upgrade this to a 1200 Octo, all you will need are 8 new 500 arms

I will post pictures of the build soon.

Vulcan UAV Skyhook Airframes takes a crash in it stride

Postby robone » Mon Oct 01, 2012 7:23 pm

Here is a Video showing how strong these Vulcan Frames are:

This is from a customer in Sweden. His 900 Hexa threw a prop and went in hard from high up. Damage? One bent leg and one missing prop.
