2023 Summer Semester Flying Robot Project Team C Article 6June 28, 2023


I am Yuito Izumi, a first-year student in the College of Liberal Arts, Science I, and I am in charge of this week's blog post on the airplane project. I joined this project because it brought back memories of flying toy radio-controlled airplanes in my childhood, and I thought it would be fun to start building one myself this time.
What I did in class this week was to cut out the missing parts of the main wing. Since the available balsa board was very depleted, Senoo carefully considered the placement of the parts on the balsa when printing. Thanks to his efforts, we managed to cut out all the parts. We also learned this week the necessity of temporary assembly. The TA taught us to assemble without gluing once before gluing and assembling, in anticipation of what would happen if we misplaced a part or a part was defective. And as he predicted, there were discrepancies among the members in the placement of the parts. I am so glad that I noticed it before gluing.
Despite these problems, we were able to tentatively assemble the entire main wing at the end of the class. The wing was much larger and more authentic than we had imagined, and we felt a kind of sense of accomplishment. Next week, we will be printing the base for the motors, designing the electrical system, and discussing the payload mechanism. We don't have much time before the end of the class. We want to pace ourselves and work on our projects.
