Abstract: This project investigates the implementation of a fuel cell into a small unmanned aerial vehicle. Small model aircraft are used around the world by hobbyists for pleasure and creating home videos. Currently these aircraft are a excellent solution for many commercial applications; land surveying, search and rescue, police surveillance, border control and recently in the news for the Army. However, these aircraft can only fly for a fraction of an hour, and then require a length battery recharge, or for many spare batteries to be carried. A fuel cell offers a far greater endurance than any battery whilst still maintaining low weight. It is anticipated that a fuel cell for the aircraft in this project will last for six to ten hours, and is very quick and easy to refuel, and requires no recharging at all.
