Event Info
RC Aircraft Design, Fabrication Flying - as a part of The AerotriX Super Challenge will be held on 15-16 March 2014 at  Regional Venue, AerotriX Center, Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India.
RC Aircraft Design, Fabrication and Flying Workshop : 
Radio-Controlled Aircraft, or RC Aircraft as it is popularly known, is an airplane that is controlled remotely. The airplane has an engine and servo motors, fixed on board, for stability and controls. The aeromodels are controlled manually from the ground using a Radio transmitter.
The RC Aircraft Design, Fabrication and Flying is an aeromodelling workshop that helps participants learn about the dynamics and design of an airplane. This workshop on aeromodelling would introduce the participants to the four pillars of Aerospace Engineering - Aerodynamics, Flight Mechanics, Aircraft Propulsion and Structures, with stress on the first two topics. Aeromodelling is a very interesting and fun manner to learn the complex theory behind aircrafts. In this workshop, basics of electronics relevant to RC aeromodelling(radio controls, servo motors) and i.c engine/electric motor would also be covered.
Uniqueness of the Workshop:
Aeromodelling as a practical exercise of engineering and not just a hobby.
No predesigned, ready-to-assemble aeromodelling kits or blue prints of designs handed out to participants.
Design and fabrication of the aeromodel as a consequence of complete understanding and application of theory.
Geometry and design of the RC Aircraft finalised by the participants using an algorithm developed by AerotriX.
Fabrication of a unique aeromodel by each team depending on their design.
All the RC Aircrafts will be tested by flying them, after necessary verification by our engineers.
Hence the participant would leave the workshop with the confidence of learning and will later on be able to design and develop his/her own aircraft in various configurations.
Prerequisites: None.
Workshop Structure:
The workshop has the following modules:
Lecture on Basics of Aeronautics - The participants would be introduced to:
Concepts of flight
Basics of Aerodynamics and its applications
Mechanics of flight - Stability and Control of an Aircraft
Structural Configurations of a plane
An interactive Design Session: After explaining the problem statement, an interactive session encourages the participants to understand the various parameters involved in the design of an aircraft like material selection, geometry, structural constraints, stability and control considerations etc. The participants would then proceed to design their own aircraft by applying a unique algorithm developed by AerotriX, using hand calculations and a software. This gives the participants a perspective that aeromodelling is an application of engineering and not just a hobby.
Instrumentation of an RC Aircraft - An overview of the electronic/electric components used in the RC Aircraft:
Details about the components like Rx-Tx, servo motors, BLDC, ESC etc.
Controls and actuation using Radio Controller
Precautions and safety measures applicable during RC flying
Fabrication: The participants would give a physical form to their design developed in the design session from scratch. The participants are just provided with material to fabricate their RC Aircrafts andnot ready-to-assemble aeromodelling kits.
Testing: After thorough verification, the RC Aircrafts fabricated by the students would finally be tested by flying them.
About Organizer :
AerotriX is the brainchild of IIT Kanpur alumni formed with the intention of improving the skills and employability of Engineering students through hands-on activity based training programs. Having won several awards including 2nd Best Business Venture Award, Ideas, IIT Kanpur; RunnerUp at UnLtd India Growth Challenge; 30 Most Promising Startups, Next Big Idea, IIM Bangalore, AerotriX is playing a major role in transforming textbook geniuses into productive engineers.
AerotriX workshops are carefully designed to expose participants to multi-disciplinary demands of the industry and students from Mechanical, Aeronautical, Automobile, Electrical, Electronics, Computer Science and Instrumentation Engineering disciplines find them very useful. Students from other disciplines with an interest to learn and experience Aeromodelling also find these workshops educative as they develop a flavour for practical engineering.
