As I mentioned in my previous post (2012-1-31 Problems, Solutions and More), I'm planning on getting a new plane to assist learning to fly and also to be used as a backup plane in the event of problems occurring with SEPA. The plane I've decided on getting is the AXN Clouds Fly Floater Jet (commonly just known as the AXN in a few places) which can be found here; which has been recommended several times on a couple of the YouTube channels I follow, xjet and RC Model Reviews.

I've been doing research into my projects and have come across some problems I'm now facing regarding my UAV projects (MEHA and SEPA) however I've covered the main parts in my recent post for SEPA. It's going to further delay doing flight tests, but does not mean that the project can't progress as there is still work to be done.

As I mentioned in the blog post (Progress Update - 2011-10-17), I'm going to be modifying the plane slightly to make more room in the plane for the control electronics. Although when doing flight testing, I may just end up strapping a box to the undercarriage of the aircraft until I can design a custom control board small enough to fit inside the plane. Either way, the modifications are going to be going ahead once I'm certain I won't cause the plane to have structural issues. This is because I plan to remove sections of foam to make more room for the electronics but I will be also reinforcing the sections that have had foam cut with fibreglass and epoxy.

Well, as you may have noticed, there hasn't really been any update as of late, or pictures for the projects I've done, or any new content what so ever. There are multiple reasons for this, but the primary one that has been happening as of late is due to me having little free time as one of the biggest changes of my life finally occurred. I moved out of home; slowly moving stuff over to my new place and have been organising everything. Currently most of the equipment I need is in boxes in the cupboard here, but that's not a big problem as it's easy to get to when I start working on the projects again.

There hasn’t been an update on my site for a while but the projects haven’t been abandoned. All of the projects I’ve been a part of, have been delayed significantly due to my ongoing struggle with depression and coping with it, but I won’t go into that in this post. So you may be asking on “what has he been working on?” at this point, and the primary thing I’ve been working on is changing my circumstances for the better to make my depression more manageable, although this doesn’t mean the projects haven’t had any progress.
