RVJET Features and Updates

The RVJET platform features 2 wingspans, a huge 1.95 meter (76.7 inches) wing span for ultra stabile video footage, and a shorter 1.55 meter (61 inches) wing span for a fast and dynamic FPV experience. The RVJET can carry up to a 10,000mAh 11,1V battery and reach flight times exceeding 45 minutes.

Aside from a rugged foam nose, the RVJET features a unique and versatile camera gimbal, designed to suit both the popular GoPro Hero series as well as most micro cameras available on the market. The mechanics are designed to be 100% play-free, eliminating shaky video footage. The gimbal allows pan & tilt angles up to 170 degrees.Dome reflections are almost completely eliminated by implementing a smart design. The camera lens is positioned extrmely close to the dome, maintains an equal distance form the dome at all angles and is protected by a glare shield . The front dome is easily removed without any tools or parts, simply twist and lock it into place.

The dome protects the camera inside and is of extreme high quality. The material used is optically clear as glass to ensure there is no image distortion and it is hard coated to improve the scratch resistance.
Available in both black and white, the RVJET airframe is made from very durable molded EPO foam. The kit includes high quality injection molded hardware. On the underside of the wing the landing skid protects the airframe and clear dome during rough landings and integrates a rugged hook that enables bungee launches.

The RVJET is shipped inside a custom made foam box that can be used for transporting the finished RVJET to and from the flying field safely for assembly.

- foam airframe elements, CF spars
- metal gear wing servos with pushrods, control horns

Dennis Build log

Dennis's RVJET build log

I bought the RVJET with their "power package"..

My setup will use the APM 2.5, GoPro Hero3 (black) for FPV and a Canon S100 for Aerial Photography.. This will be either or, won't be able to do both at the same time.. Using the EPO nose cone to hold the S100 camera.

I read a lot of people had problem with Rangevideo shipping orders but I bought from them anyway.. Shipping was fast, the shipped my order the next day.. Couple problems though.. I ordered a FrSky JR setup for my Turnigy 9x which wasn't in the box and no packing slip to tell me it was back ordered so I have no idea why it wasn't there. I called them on Saturday and got voicemail.. Sent an email but so far no reply yet.

Also they did not pack the box too well, either that or the post office went postal on my RVJet box! everything was loose and rolling around.. Fortunately, nothing was damaged except a couple corners of the EOP was mashed a tiny bit.. but those where the underside panels the glued into the wings next to the fin's.

I'm missing one of the small plates that go under the aileron to screw the control horn to.. but they sent 3 control horns so I think I can cut one down to work..

Also missing where control arm's for the wing servo's.. But a quick trip to the local shop fixed that..

I mounted adapters for my RFD900 antennas in the wings with extension cables. I also enlarged the holes in the body so that I can slide both the antenna cable and servo wire thru.

I didn't like the long ailerons with the control horn toward one edge so I added a CF strip down each one for extra support.

I cut a little bit of the forward EPO to get my Canon S100 to fit and then cut a little of the inside of the foam nose so it just fits in perfectly.. I'll cut a 2" hole under it tonight so the lense and come thru.. not sure yet how to attach the nose.. I don't want to keep taping it and wonder if velcro strips will hold up? Anyone have ideas on this?

I built the long wing version but am a little confused on the wing spar.. They tell you to glue the joiner half way into the middle length (795) one but says nothing about the other side of it. Do you glue the other wing spare onto the joiner as well? Since the wings stay on by friction, will there be enough just simple sliding the other spar over the joiner? (the joiner fits a little loose).
Well, its all coming together... Just gotta figure out how to hook up the AdruPilot now.. Believe it or not, there is a ton of video's on it but none on how to integrate it into your plane! At least I haven't found them yet.. If anyone has a link, I would MUCH appreciate one!

As it sits right now, the CG is almost perfect... Slightly nose heavy but once all the wire are in should fit that..
