AWuAV 3015E the Revolutionary Open Source drone!
Get in touch with us
What make are AWuAV 3015E different & better then the “Latest & Greatest” drones offerings today … is that AWuAV 3015E Is revolutionary and is Almost all Open Source!
This is why we are able to have all new Add On’s from independent vendors from around the world!
Be it software or the countless hardware vendors As in Antennas, Wifi cards, add on bus illuminators Etc, Etc The list goes on, on …… Can DJI offer this? could GoPro Karma offer this? No to both, unless you want to get sued or lose your warranty

How it Works
AWuAV 3015E the Revolutionary Open Source drone
“Annular Wing Unmanned Air Vehicle”
The vehicle has only 2 parts the ring wing and the motor-propeller no other moving parts for a gain in weight.
AWuAV is controlled only by a Thrust Vectoring Flight Control (TVFC)
WHY A ANNULAR WING
A shrouded ducted annular wing can be smaller and carry more payload than a bi or quadcopter.
WHY A VECTORING FLIGTH CONTROL SINGLE MOTOR
To reduces the weight and power consumption of the unit.
The electric motor-propeller is fixed on a ring gimbal mechanism with 2 servos at 90 degrees.
(no control surface).
This technological leap makes it possible to manufacture drones of 0.30 meters to 1.5 meters of diameter
which can carry 2 times their weight from 2 kg to 150 kg of payload and about 40 minutes to 20 hours in air.
Up to 0.60 meters in diameter, the electric motor with or not a hybrid fuel range extender is essential, above we use a twin gaz engine from 7 hp to 160 hp multi-fuel.
The idea of making a drone vtol of 25/40cm with a single motor + propeller to start 2 years ago there were 2 possibilities
Has a single motor and 4 independent flaps. The vehicle’s yaw is controlled by adjusting all four fine to point slightly clockwise or counter-clockwise.
Has two counter-rotating motors and at least two independent flaps (4 individual servos / flaps can be used. The vehicle’s yaw is controlled by adjusting the speeds of the two motors. I.e. speeding up the clockwise motor while slowing down the counter-clockwise
We tested the singlecopter solution but having the load above the drone did not please us. The project leader had the idea to use a mobile motor + helice assembly to direct the drone.
4 mechanisms have been tested for gimbal motor
– axe + ball and 2 servos at 90 ° (takes too much place in height)
– 2 square...Read more »
Congratulation, very nice project ! But what about open source ?
No schematics, firmware, components, instructions....
No details about the steering concept, did you use an underactuated mechanism embedded in the rotor like this one: http://www.modlabupenn.org/2014/10/23/underactuated-rotor/ ?
