2019 Autumn Semester Flying Robot Project Team A Article 3December 18, 2019


Our group, Group A, has decided to make an all-wing aircraft. The all-wing aircraft has the complicated shape, because the main wing and the tail wing are merged. However, all of us would like to make the flying robot which has the big main wing, so we have decided this shape of the aircraft.
In the class of this week, we will make the framework of the main wing on the blueprint which we printed out last week of it with wood and we also make the parts which connect the wing and the body.
First, I will talk about the main wing. Considering the weight, 200g, and the speed, 3m/s, we had decided the area of the main wing, 0.76m2, solving the equation of Lift. We put the wood parts which we made of the balsa on the blueprint. We have to work carefully.
Second, I am going to the parts which connect the wing and the body. We used laser cutter. I moved the CAD data which shows the blueprint from my computer to the laser cutter’s computer. We cut the veneer as the blueprint shows on the computer. Veneer is more intense than balsa. So, we used it to reinforce the part which are very weak in terms of the construction. It is very interesting for me, because I have never done such operation.
In the next week, we are going to continue this task and make the flying robot.
Thank you for supporting our study every week.
1) 主翼についてです。重量200g、速度3m/s を考慮して揚力の式より主翼面積は0.76m2と決まっています。バルサを切って主翼を作ります。慎重に作業を行いました。
2) 胴体と主翼をつなぐパーツについてです。レーザーカッターを使って図面通りにベニヤを切りました。ベニヤはバルサに比べて硬いので今日が求められる部分に用います。
