A découvrir, si ce n'est au moins pour l'originalité de l'expérience, une petite démonstration vidéo d'un avion télécommandé entièrement habillé de LEDs. Une piste qui pourrait être approfondie dans le cadre d'opérations de marketing ou de performances artistiques. Enjoy !
This Radio Controlled airplane is a scratch built 1936 Lanzo Record Breaker with an eight foot wing span. It is about 12 years old & has seen many configurations from gas powered tow plane, camera ship, autonomous test platform, to video transmitting search plane. In its current configuration, it is a Night Nite flying rc airplane with 30 meters of LED lights. (I know I said 6 meter in the video, but I was nervous)Thats a total of one thousand eight hundred individual led lights The motor is a Hacker B-50 L-13 with gearbox, prop is 14 inch diameter, with a Castle Creations 80 AMP speed control and a six cell 5000 Mah Thunder Power Extreme V2 li-po motor battery. The LED are powered by three separate 3 cell 2100 Mah li-po batteries. The ship was flown at the SCCMAS facility in Morgan Hill, California by Walter Colby. Don't complain about the camera work I found the camera guy in the home depot parking lot. wcolby HD www.sccmas.org
The LEDs draw approximately 1.2 amps for every 5 meters at 11.1Volts. I have 5 meters of red & 5 meters of green in the wing run by a single 2100 Mah 3 cell lithium polymer battery. I have 5 meters of blue on the tail & 5 meters of white on the sides of the fuselage run by another 2100 Mah 3 cell lithium polymer battery pack. And finally there is 10 meters of white LED on the bottom of the fuselage run by a third 2100 Mah 3 cell lithium polymer battery. I am not an electrician but the lights run for about 50 minutes, the part I appreciate is that when one battery dies the others continue to operate. The airplane motor & servo control is powered by a 6 cell 5000 mah battery that should fly the plane for about 45 minuets.
