3 Introduction In this document, we will be discussing our engineering analysis of the U13A remote controlled helicopter. However, before discussing the engineering analysis, we will be giving a brief overview of the project in which we have been tasked with completing, which is the scaling of a remote controlled helicopter. Lastly, we will review our Gantt chart and give an update as to where our team is at and what is coming in the near future. Problem Description Our client is Dr. Kosaraju, an instructor at Northern Arizona University. He has given our team the task of purchasing and scaling a remote controlled helicopter. For this task he requested a helicopter whose length is approximately 10 inches. Our ultimate task is to successfully scale this helicopter by 1.5. In the process of scaling, we will be analyzing the design of the helicopter itself to see what could be changed to help better the performance of the helicopter. Helicopter Description The helicopter chosen by our team is the U13A remote controlled helicopter. We chose this helicopter due to the length being roughly eleven inches. As well as, the helicopter controller is very user friendly, providing thrust information throughout flight. Also, if the team decides there is adequate time for a camera addition to the helicopter, this helicopter and controller come pre equipped with a camera which should allow for an easy upgrade on the scaled helicopter. The U13A helicopter can be seen in Figure 1, and the remote can be seen in Figure 2. Figure 1: Helicopter Figure 2: Remote

5 of similar size and shape, the coefficient of lift can range from 0.1 to 0.7 [6]; for this reason, the average value from this range, 0.4, was used for the coefficient of lift. In order to accurately assume a value for the coefficient of drag on the blades, the value of 0.04 for a fully streamlined body was considered, but then increased to 0.1 in order to embed a design factor into the calculations [5]. In addition to the assumptions listed above, several more key assumptions were made to complete the analysis and will be mentioned throughout the section. Figure 3 below shows a free body diagram of the basic forces occurring while the helicopter is in flight. Figure 4: Free body diagram of the helicopter in flight. The first calculation made is for the power supplied to the rotor. Assuming that the battery pack can deliver 7.4 volts and can supply a current of 30 amps, the power is calculated in the following equation: where: V voltage, I current. ( )( ) The resultant horsepower comes from reasonable assumptions for the battery voltage and current that can be achieved from a variety of different lithium polymer cell configurations.

6 After calculating the power, the lift force created by the rotor was calculated [2]. First, the power loading is calculated as: ( ). The thrust loading can then be calculated using the formula:. And finally, the lift can be calculated as: ( ) ( ). In order to calculate the drag force on the helicopter blades, the angular velocity must first be known. For helicopters of similar size to the scaled helicopter, the average angular velocity is 1600 RPM, or rad/s [3]. This gives us a maximum tip velocity of [4]: ( ) ( ). The following equation relates the drag force to air density, velocity, area, and the coefficient of drag [4]: ( ) ( ) ( ) where: Coefficient of drag, Density of air at 7000 feet, Area of the blade perpendicular to the drag, Average blade velocity.

8 use of the helicopter, it failed due to landing impact that would be a serious problem. So here is the analysis for the landing gear. Besides power plant and thrust systems one of the most important pieces on any helicopter is a reliable landing gear. The landing gear provides a stable means of support for the helicopter when landing. The material for the skid support structure, as seen in Figure 4 below, is Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (EVA). EVA is a very resilient plastic with excellent shock absorbing properties. The ultimate compressive strength for EVA is 1450 PSI and the tensile strength is 2000PSI [1]. Using a strong shock absorbing material will ensure that a minimum amount of force from a landing will be imparted to sensitive systems like the motors or battery. With more forceful landings it will be advantageous if the landing gear breaks on impact so the forces will be diverted into breaking the members and not directly into the aircraft. Figure 4: New upscale landing gear Figure 5: Static analysis Figure 4 shows the Team s updated landing gear for the 1.5 scaled helicopter. The skid support structures which are the thicker pieces attached to the rods, have a constant cross sectional area of 0.15 in 2. To analyze whether this landing gear can absorb the shock the Team must find the impact force and use the cross section area to get a stress. By comparing the stress

9 in the member to the compressive strength of EVA the Team can assess whether the landing gear can survive a fall from a specified height. The Team has chosen to analyze the landing gear falling from a height of 6 ft. The chosen weight was slightly over 3 times the original weight. This is well over the 1.5 scale, however the Team chose to go 3 times the original weight so as to take into account any increases in weight from materials selection or add ons such as cameras. The Team is using the Impact Force equation which is as follows:. In the equation to the left W is the weight of the object in pounds, h is the height as which the object is dropped in feet, and s is the slow down distance in feet. The impact force is measured in pounds. The Team found the slow down distance to be 0.2 inches which measures to feet. This distance is measured from the testing of the displacement of the original landing gear. Through the use of the impact force equation the impact force is found to be lbs. By diving among the four vertical members the force turns into 43.2 lbs. Using this vertical force and doing some statics analysis as shown in Figure 5 above, we can see that the force that compresses the member in the landing gear is 40.6 lbs. The next step is to find the stress in the member and assess whether it can handle the impact. Stress is found using the equation:. The stress is found to be PSI. This stress is well below the ultimate compressive strength of 1450 PSI so it is safe to assume that this landing gear will survive a six foot fall with an abrupt stop. Modeled U13A Over the past three weeks we have started to model our helicopter as you can see in Figure 6. This model is just about done we are missing the fins in the back and the tail supports. In the upcoming weeks we will be scaling this model by 1.5 and making changes to the design of the helicopter to make it perform better. These changes will consist of a new landing gear, new blades, new gear ratio, and changing the pivoting angle of the blades. While we chose all the new

10 designs we will finish all of our analyses on the helicopter and finish selecting the material that the new parts will be made out of. Figure 6: SolidWorks model of the U13A helicopter Gantt Chart The project plan is still on track based on our predicted dates. We are approaching our final milestone which is the final design. We are continuing the process of assembling the helicopter in solid works and it is almost fully assembled. For the design improvements, the team decided to continue working on the analysis part of the landing gear, and blades. Each of these individual parts took time to analyze because of its complex U13A design. The team made sure everyone did research on their specific part in order to start the analysis. The final task is to

11 finish the final design that is due at the end of the semester as shown in Figure 7. Materials will then be chosen for the final design as well. Figure 7: Current Gantt Chart Conclusion In conclusion, we discussed what the problem is and where we are headed with the initial problem. The helicopter must be scaled to a 1.5 scale that can have accessory attachments. The analysis must be chosen based on the problem statement. We had to make assumptions when considering what equations to use for each the blade and landing gear analysis. In the analysis, we chose to analyze the blades first. We wanted to analyze forces acting on the blades so that we can investigate whether or not the blades will fail when we upscale the original part size. We first calculated what the power output is and that came out to be.298 hp. After that we calculated
