2016 summer semester Flying Robot Project 13th Team DJuly 06, 2016


 This week our team finished making the plane. We attached electrical components to the body of the plane. The position of the center of the gravity was dependent on the place where electrical components were installed. So we were careful in installing them. After attaching them, our team connected the hinge of the empennage and servomotors by strings. By connecting these components we were able to control a rudder and an elevator by the controller. We checked whether the rudder and the elevator move exactly in response to the controller.
After we assembled the elements, it became clear that the wing-body junction was too weak to endure loads. So we reinforced them by installing balsa woods over again.
 And also we made a box in order to carry our plane to the gym where we make a test flight.
Next week we finally make a test flight. We expect our plane to fly stably and slowly.
