Supported Aircraft

Ruby will work with just about any aircraft, but these have an extra degree of support.

Ruby has been tested successfully with a wide range of fixed wing aircraft, including sport, glider, small parkflier, and flying wing, using electric and gas power. New airframes continually being added to the list.

Aircraft listed here have some or all of the following advantages, however:

  • Proven configuration files that allow you to skip or shorten the process
    of configuring and tuning Ruby.
  • Time saving ready-to-fly aircraft with Ruby installed and configured.
  • uThere developers, support technicians,
    or other Ruby users having direct experience with the aircraft.
  • Specific installation, operation notes and forum discussions.

If you don't see your plane or a similar one listed below, and are able to fly your aircraft in manual mode, we'll be glad to work with you to configure and tune Ruby for your plane. You'll send us recorded flight data, we'll review the data and send you updated configuration files, and we'll repeat a few times until Ruby is flying your plane optimally.

Planes will be added to this list continually.

Contact support@uthere.com to recommend aircraft to be added to this list, and to submit your own settings files for use by others.

A HUGE plane (2.4 meter span!) ready to carry tons of battery and gear or float with very low wing loading.

Now supported.
