Aero modelling Workshop

RC Aircraft Design, Fabrication Flying and Troubleshooting :

The objective of the workshop is to familiarize radio controlled aerial vehicles to the young minds, exposing them to the hands on experience of the design, fabrication and its applications.

RC Aircraft :
The workshop of two days on RC Aircraft will introduce the participants to basic concepts of Aerodynamics, Propulsion, Flight mechanics, Structures etc. and some concepts of Electronics involved in R/C Aircraft technology. The workshop provides a unique opportunity to understand and apply the theory underlying the working of an aircraft, to come up with the design of a mini aircraft and fabricate it from scratch. At the end of the workshop, a brief intro about other RC projects will be given. This will benefit the participants to utilize the components from the workshop to make other RC models.

Workshop Structure :
1. Introduction Introduction to Aerodynamics Concepts of Structural design Forces on an aircraft 2. RC Aircraft Design Process Thumb rule of aircraft design Theoretical calculations Power system selection Design freeze 3.
