How to write Conceptual Design ?

Hello All,

I have to write a conceptual design report inorder to get the fund to make my drone project. But I have no idea how to write conceptual design. In the questions that I am reuired to answer, describing mission requirenments(they are already given) and transleting them into desing requirenments.

There are 2 missions given;

1)  The drone has to complete the area which have four 5m tall masts and it is supposed to draw zigzags between them. After passing a mast, The Drone must successfully change in direction and keep flying to the other mast in the most possible speed and stability.

[ Flight and maneuvering capabilities should be strong in my drone, and of course It should complete the parkor as soon as possible ]

2) The drone is supposed to take 4 payloads ( rigid objects with minimum 100 g mass in cubic (5 cm x 5 cm x 5 cm) )  and transport them to four targets, leaving one cubic in each target area. The Drone must leave the cubics from the minimum height of 5,5m .

[ Abilities of The Drone in transporting payloads such as Firefighting or first aid equipment quickly and successfully to the target points will be tested so it should fly stable and drop the loads to the certain area, not outside of the area  ]

I've actually designed some mechanism to take the loads and drop them. But how can I write this to report. I am required to submit 20 - 60 pages. I am opened to any advice about anything in my project ? Can you please help me?

Thank you

      You should not listen to anything Darius Jack has to say.  He is a notorious troll.

    • SSSHHHH!  We're supposed to pretend he's not here!

      If everyone stays quiet, maybe he'll just go away.

      try to do that, but I hate to see him mislead people asking for help who do not know about him.

    •  Do not pretend he is not here, he is!  Destroy him for the worthless troll he is!!

    • :))

    • I do not understand what is driving Darius Jack to post in just about every group in this community and loudly proclaim that he is the biggest expert here and that he  knows everything and that everyone else is behind conspiracies everywhere!

      Pretty obvious the so called Darius is a bot. Funny to see actual human beings answering to a bot. I bet someone is experimenting with IA on this forum. The bot has still progress to make to look "intelligent". At the moment it looks like the output of a search engine based on keywords.

    • He has some kind of ionosphere syndrome ;).

    • @Osman,

      Cala tries to fool you.

      Read about 

      GPS Ionospheric Error Correction Models from

      Just enter

      "GPS ionospheric error"

      into search engine

      to read first  5- 10 papers, manuals in pdf format.

      I have resolved the problem of high-precision control

      in multicopter, but this place is populated by too many

      trolls to discuss my solution.

      I need to set up team of developers on my own

      to build High Precision Control Multicopter PRO

      to meet safety standards as defined by new FAA pending legislation.

  • Hey Osman,

    You could look at some reports from the Design Build Fly competition over the past few years. These go through the whole design process and usually go into pretty good detail. It's all fixed wing but the competition requires following a specific flight path and usually something like a payload drop. Good luck and please avoid some of the inane advice certain people have posted.
