Introduction

Hello and welcome! My name is Alex, but I am mostly known as Pompecukor in the RC community.

I first started to make this webpage with the intention to aggregate some of the information that you see here about my services. I asked a friend to look at it and tell me what he thinks.


He reminded me, that many of the people who come here will be new to this area of long range RC flight or are not using the same forums that I use. In other words they will not know who I am, what I do, and what I have accomplished. He suggested that I start off with a few words about myself, post information about my achievements and background. All in all to build credibility. So here goes:


I got into the RC world not really very long ago. 2008 to be precise. As I guess many people do, I started with a small toy and was hooked from then on for life. I flew exclusively LOS (line of sight) with no assistance at the beginning. FPV (first person view) was in its infancy and stabilizers were very sparse and very expensive.


Later came more reasonably priced FPV equipment with exciting features for the RC community. This has opened entire new horizons for me. FPV and long range flying has definitely become a passion for me, one could easily say I am now really hard core.



I have always been keen to push the limits. Always looking for the best devices both in build quality and feature list. Sharing and learning from fellow hobbyist and my own experience, I have developed my expertise and proficiency to a high level. I enjoy learning, experimenting with new ideas, working with others in the FPV community and building proven FPV systems. This is a very exciting time.


Along the way I became a beta tester for PITLAB flight controller and OSD system. I believe that this system is currently the most well rounded solution for FPV. There are many other good systems out there, some of which I have personally had experiences with. 


During the recent past I set very high records in the FPV RC community. For example in June 2016 I set the unofficial world record for long range flights with electric FPV plane. 132km out and back. In other words a total of 264km flight, which took 5 hours continuous flight to complete. 


I say unofficial, because not everyone likes to report their achievements. You can see the full narrated video of the highlighted test above or look in my gallery.



If you are interested in doing long range flight, I encourage you to take time to watch my youtube video to get some new ideas. Long Range FPV flying can be very exciting and very challenging. My commitment, knowledge and expertise with Long Range FPV flying is demonstrated in the video. 


A short while before the above achievement. I also was in the top 4 in extreme altitude flying record. I went up to 7km high, the temperature was lower than -30 degrees C. This was a very challenging test for the equipment and required extensive planning and proved the reliability of the systems I have chosen. 


As mentioned earlier, in my builds I try to use the best equipment that I have tested and personally proven to be functional and reliable yet still within an affordable price range. You can be certain that what I use for my go-to builds are tried and tested and meet my high standards. 


I have built FPV systems for customers, applying my knowledge and expertise to satisfy their goals and needs. 


My home is in Hungary, which is in Europe.



Please see some details below, about areas in which I can be of service to you. Feel free to contact me with any question. I look forward to being of assistance.

Ready To Fly (RTF)

Custom built long range airplane

The easiest and most comfortable option for both unskilled and skilled pilots. This is the best option for you if you either are not experinced in this or have don't have the time and/or skill to go through the tideous, research, building and tuning process. I build, tune and ship fully setup long range airplanes. There are three major version based on application:
Aerial Mapping
Recreational FPV
Survaillance

DIY with Live Support

Build your own, with my live support

This is for people who cannot afford a ready built plane or have a lot of free time and would like to build one themselves. I help a lot of people all over the world achieve their goal with whatever long range build that they are after: Live chat (text, voice, even video when needed).
Sourcing best parts
Detailed shopping list
Building and setup guides (videos)
Best practice coaching

Remote administration
Trouble shooting
 

Custom Lithium Ion Packs

High capacity, light weight battery packs for long range fligths.

Base on your specifications (capacity, voltage, size), I make custom lithium-Ion battery packs. There a two major advantages of those packs over the more common LiPo ones used in the current remote controlled model industry/hobby:
Better capacity to weight ratio (~33%)
Longer usable life time (more recharge cycles)

Note: Due to current air transportation restriction I can only ship these within the EU!

Ready To Fly (RTF)

Custom built long range airplane


The easiest and most comfortable option for both unskilled and skilled pilots. This is the best option for you if you either are not experienced in this or have don't have the time and/or skill to go through the tedious, research, building and tuning process.

I build, tune and ship fully setup long range airplanes. There are three major version based on application:
  • Aerial mapping: Agriculture, land development, town planning.
  • Recreational FPV: High definition aerial videos. Developing piloting flight skills.
  • Survaillance: Security, crime fighting, search and rescue missions.

It is possible to have a hybrid also, but you get better range if you have it for a specific application, as the various devices influence the overall weight, which in return has an effect on the flight range.

It is built on a high payload twin motor platform (called the MyTwinDream), with high quality parts only. 


Depending on requirements, I can set this up for you to fly up to 200km range.

You can use this even if you are not an experienced or a skilled pilot.

I can give you training on how to setup a mapping mission and then all you need to do is upload to the plane and throw it in the air. It will take-off, map the area and then return to the set landing point, land and what is best is it does all this fully autonomously.

For FPV you can of course fly around as you want in an easy to fly stabilized modes.


Price and build time varies depending on requirements.


General practice is that we discuss your goals, including the range that you need to cover per flight and how much detail you need for aerial mapping (as an example, this would influence your choice of camera). If the application is agricultural, then it needs not only a RGB camera, but also NDVI shots. On finalizing your needs, I give you a quote. To have a general idea on pricing, a base version is a little over 2000 USD. Then goes up from there depending on the individual requirements, for example higher quality camera, long range battery, special FLIR sensor (for locating body temp of victim or criminal in the forest). There are options for high quality custom build aluminum case for transportation of the plane, shipping cost and so on.


I always do my best to deliver to you a high quality build and all necessary post-delivery support. I really like to take responsibility for my work.

This is a so called "donation-ware". Unfortunately my time is limited, between family, work and my hobby. I like to help and do so all the time. However as I do, I take away the time form other parts of my life. I never charge for my expertise, but I do accept donation. What you can expect from me in return is not minutes of my time, but many hours. It is really rear that I talk to a person just once. Most of the people that I work with, we end up in a dialogue for weeks. As I do my best to help them along with their build and setup.


The truth is, no matter how much you do donate, you will end up saving much more. Not just from the fact that you would spare yourself from unnecessary expenses (buying the wrong items), but also from the very many hours of research and reading that you can avoid with my help.

To sum it up. I got a lot from the community and I do my best to give back for free and not for a profit. That is why I make my public guide videos public. Also do my best to answer any question in the forums topics that I frequent. I have never turn anyone asking for help down. So feel free to contact me. I am always available.

I am aways avaialable and happy to help. Please feel free to contact me.
