I am almost finished with the build on a heavy lift prototype UAV. Info need to hire a person or company to work with me to set up a flight controller/autopilot... etc.
Does anyone know a company or an individual that can handle this for me? Thank you
Our facility is located in northern Illinois, about an hour SW of downtown Chicago.
The 33% size prototype has a Nasa N3 flight controller system with addl. components however we are looking for a more advanced flight/autopilot system for the full-size designs.
The MTOW of the first full size prototype is right around 300 lbs.
The Prototypes are advanced quadcopter and hexacopter designs.
Localized testing would be full electric in the beginning and move to hybrid/electric for the production models.
We need to work with or hire a knowledgeable person that can give us info on which advanced flight control/autopilot system and components that are best suited for our designs and would need to be able to set the system up and perform the needed operations to calibrate it, etc.
Thank you for the reply. It looks like they are a company that will teach you how to fly a drone.
We already have an accomplished drone pilot.
We are in need of a knowledgeable person that can give us info on which advanced non hobby flight control/autopilot system and components that are best suited for our designs and would need to be able to set the system up and perform the needed operations to calibrate it, etc.
I will check out those type of employment sites.
My thought is that if it is an engineer that I need, they would have to be drone, etc. experienced per se.
That is why I am posting here and in other Drone specific spots.
Thanks again, any info that keeps me moving forward on this is greatly appreciated.
I believe I may have found the auto pilot system we need for the first phase of testing, and it looks like there is quite a bit of info on how to set it up, etc. At least for the scaled prototypes. This will keep us moving forward and allow us some time to find and hire the right person.
