2016 summer semester Flying Robot Project 6th Team BMay 18, 2016


In this week, we improved the drawing to some degree. We had been pointed out that our sketch had weak points. For example, the main wings of our plane had few ribs, so the main wings were likely to have difficulty in maintain their forms. Therefore we decided to install more ribs in the main wings. And we didn’t draw a detail of rudder and elevator in our sketch. So we corrected them. In next week, we will almost complete the drawing from the feedback of teachers and will discuss the artifice of the plane.
Our plan of wings has so improved in this week. Until last week, the sketch of wings didn’t make me think that this can fly normally. However, due to the improvement in this week, I believe firmly that this plane can fly stably.
But we have many problems yet. That is how we adjust the location of center of gravity in our plane. Now in our sketch, we were pointed out that the center of gravity located in the rear of wing compared with the normal. So we are going to try to make it the fore point. But this is owed machinery equipment and we will adjust in making plane actually.
