Interesting topic. You may have done some calculation to estimate the power that needs to be generated for 10 min extra flying time. What is the extra weight from the solar panel and the power electronics parts?

Yes, these data have been mentioned in the project report and will be explored more in the final report.

Interesting idea. However, you should provide data to show how many mins fly time was increased by adding the solar panel. I doubt it is significant.

Thanks for your comment. I will provide the data after I test the drone since I have just 60% completed the project.

Great! are you using a commercial drone, or build your own ?

Only the drone is a commercial prototype and will be developed.
