Product Description/Project Objective StatementThe project objective for P11232 is to design and built a robust airframe that has a life cycle of 100 hrs. The aerodynamics of the design need to be such that it supports up to a fifteen pound payload and a flight time of thirty minutes.
Key Business Goals/Project Deliverables-Robust structure capable of a life cycle of 100 hrs.
-Support a fifteen pound payload.
-Have a thirty minute flight time, preferally using an electric motor.
Primary Market/Project Opportunities
- RIT College of Imaging Science
- Currently the College of Imaging Science rents Cessnas for aerial imaging which costs up to $8000 per mission. The goal of this project is to develop a lower cost and more versatile solution while accomplishing the same imaging capabilities.
Secondary Market/Project Opportunities
Large Scale RC Aircraft Hobbyists
Assumptions and Constraints
-55 lbs gross plane weight set by AMA
-400' maximum altitute set by FAA and AMA
-Use Airframe C as a baseline design
-Twenty-two week timeline
