Abstract
WE PROPOSE TO PRODUCE A PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF A FIFTH-SCALE REMOTE CONTROL HELICOPTER REPRESENTING A BLACK HAWK OR APACHE. THE DESIGN WILL BE PRODUCED SUCH THAT ROTORS CAN BE EASILY CHANGED FOR ROTOR EMPIRICAL RESEARCH OR TESTING. WE WILL USE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AVAILABLE HARDWARE AND TECHNIQUES, AND DRAW FROM OUR OWN EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE WITH US ARMY MICOM FIFTH-SCALE REMOTELY PILOTED HELICOPTER DESIGN, AND FROM OUR EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE WITH WIND TUNNEL ANALYSIS AND OPERATIONAL TESTING. THE PRODUCED DESIGN DOCUMENTATION WILL BE EXTENSIVE, ENOUGH TO PERMIT EASY ENTRY INTO PHASE II'S MANUFACTURING PHASE. THE DESIGN WILL BE BASED ALSO ON MODEL ROTOR WIND TUNNEL EVALUATIONS PUBLISHED BY NASA AND ARMY.
