Course Introduction

Quadcopter

Quadcopter, also called a Quadrotor helicopter, is a rotary-wing aircraft with four rotors. It finds applications in both civil and military domains. Its amazing maneuverability and the ease of flight in constricted locations have achieved itself a remarkable position in the aviation sector. Our program helps participants understand the concepts and use of accelerometer sensor, microcontrollers and wireless communication in designing and controlling a Quadcopter.

Radio Controlled Aircraft

RC Aircraft Design, Fabrication and Flying is an aeromodelling program that helps participants learn about the dynamics and design of an airplane. This program 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. In this program, basics of electronics relevant to RC aeromodelling (radio controls, servo motors, brushless DC Motors, Electronic Speed Controllers, etc.) would also be covered.
