The rotor diameter is 93 cm (36.6 in) and will operate at 1,410 rpm generating 2,000 g's of acceleration at the rotor tip, and developing 1,600 Lbs of tension in the flexelem rod due to centrifugal force. The blade…Continue
This is an analysis of the variables which affect the ability to control a multi-rotor as the size is scaled up.
This will show why at some point, variable pitch must be introduced.
I hope to follow this with another article which includes Phase Margin and Gain Margin, but right…Continue

Now that I'm starting to acquire actual parts and pieces I'm a bit concerned about the weight. But first things first, and one step at a time. I still…Continue
