My UAV ideas
May 4, 2009
I've been reading this site for the past week or so, and it has really inspired me to get more into robotics. I've had a couple of ideas for robots that I want to make in the future, I am going to start of with fritsl's starting robot, but I just wanted to share some of my future ideas to see what you guys think.
My favorite of a bunch of (probably a bit rubbish) ideas is for a UAV. There don't seem to be many posted on the site, and I expect that making it will be pretty hard (defiantly not a first robot). My ideas are partly based upon the lego model #8222 which features two movable rotors, I would also probably need some smaller fans for stabalisation. Here are some of my first drawings:
The top two are just a helicopter and the lego model i sketched, the bottom two are my designs, I ought to label them to make it clearer for you, and me in future:
Hope this is fairly clear, my writing isn't very good.
Here are some more design pictures:
These are partly designed upon the Eurocopter PAH-2 Tiger (featured in Goldeneye if anyone is a James Bond fan). But my final design will probably look more like the dragonfly from Trek Aerospace, on a much smaller scale as it will definatly not be a PAV.
What do you think?
