This week in Tiltrotors and Dynamic Modelling of Drones


Hello all ! It's been a while since I last posted, it's mostly because I've been busy brushing up on Aircraft controls and dynamics so that I can create an autopilot for the VTOL design. We re-iterated our previous design which was a flying wing to a fixed wing aircraft because no matter how much we tried to optimize it, the performance was always below what is achievable from fixed wing UAVs. So…

Flying Wing for Search and Rescue

Hey Guys,

I've been working on designing a flying wing UAV since 2 months now. Human search and rescue using an autonomous drone is the prime objective of this project.

First Prototype.

One of the major aim of our project is to show how a visual human detection system that uses images from a normal camera can be implemented in software. The system would fit into the larger context of disaster…
