The 10th ClassJune 26, 2013


In the last two weeks we drew the structural three-view drawing.
First, we changed the size of the tail wing, making it smaller from the first plan. Then we thought how to make the structure of the main wing.
We tried to use balsa as possible, for it can easily lighten the wing.
We calculated the stress on the beam, and we designed a beam that is thinner and lighter than the previous planes.
At the class, we showed the drawings to the teachers and Mr. Kimura. We realized that our design is too long, and that the fuselage will bend intensely. We also checked the weight of each components, such as the battery and the motors. This helped us to get the image of the weight.
