Course Structure

The course consists of the following modules:
  • RC Aircraft Design, Fabrication and Flying
  • Quadrotor
Each module is split in the following way
  • RC Aircraft
    • Lecture
    • Design
    • Hands-on session
    • Testing/ Competition
  • Quadrotor
    • Lecture
    • Hands-on session
    • Testing

1) RC Aircraft Design, Fabrication and Flying

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.It makes you innovate by coming up with your own design of mini aircrafts and fabricating them as per your design. 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.This workshop takes you through a series of interactive lectures and design sessions supplemented by practical sessions, thereby providing a complete learning experience.

2) Quadrotor

Quadcopter is a multi rotor air vehicle which has marked its interests for the benefit of both civil and military domains. It’s amazing maneuverability and the ease to fly in constricted locations have made it achieve a remarkable position in the aviation sector. Participants will learn about the design and construction of the Quadrotor along with the working of its complex electronics circuits in this module.
