1. QUADCOPTER

A quadcopter, also known as quadrocopter, quadrotor, quad copter, quad-copter, or drone, is a multirotor helicopter that gets lifted and propelled by four rotors. Quadcopters are known to be classified as rotorcraft, as opposed to fixed-wing aircraft, because their lift is generated by a set of rotors (vertically oriented propellers).

There are also tri copters (three blades), hexacopters (six blade), and octocopters (eight blades). The multirotors with a high number of blades are typically larger and designed to carry a heavier payload. For example, Amazon’s recent announcement about using unmanned aerial vehicles to deliver packages shows the company utilizing octocopters, given their increased range, stability, and ability to carry moderate amounts of weight.

WORKSHOP HIGHLIGHTS

During SAW R&D Quadcopter Design Workshop, participants get an opportunity to design, fabricate and test their quadcopter. Such method of application oriented training ensures participants understand the principles of aerodynamics, flight dynamics, aero structures and avionics involved in quadcopter design through its practical implementations. Participants will go through the following sessions to fabricate a quadcopter of their own.

3. RC PLANE

Basic RC plane is designed to be flown as 3 Channel trainers which is ideal for first time builders and fliers for RC airplanes. It is a perfect RC trainer plane for basic flying skills and to build confidence. The specially designed trainer style fuselage and wing of basic RC plane allow for slow and predictable flight.

A three channel plane will generally have control to motor power, elevator and rudder, although an option is to have aileron control instead of rudder. This is a super affordable way to get into RC plane fabrication with a professionally designed and yet easy to assemble and build kit.

WORKSHOP HIGHLIGHTS

The basic RC plane workshop of SAW R&D lets the participants know about basic principles and concepts of aerodynamics, flight dynamics, aero-structures and avionics involved in aircraft design in an application oriented manner.

As the name suggests, this workshop is for Aeromodelling enthusiasts who are first-timers and novice in the field of Aeromodelling.
