DIY helicopter



Summer is here. Holidays have begun, and here is your dream holiday project. Ben has this nice write up on how to make your own helicopter. The tutorial is pretty cool and has a page where he has put up a chart with all the components of the helicopter drawn to scale on it. Simply take a printout and make similar moulds using the cut outs from the paper with metal or plastic and assemble them. Its definitely more tought than what it seems to be, but its worth your time and most fo the components can be found in your junk…

Flying RC helicopter is really very exhilarating. Their versatility gives a RC pilot a complete access to the three-dimensional space in such a way that no other machines can! I have played RC helicopter for more than one year but still find that I have just learnt a few tricks that it can perform.

There are generally two micro-helicopters ( indoor ) in the RC market. I have already planned to buy one of them as they can fly inside the living room and even take off on ours hand. Unlike those operated by gas, these electric helicopters are very clean and give out no terrible noise at all. In one nightfall, I visited a web site, which is about how to make a hand made RC helicopter. I was totally impressed and started designing my own helicopter.

Check it out.

    to whom it may concern. i’m a 3rd yr student of eee. i’m hoping to design a microcontroller controlled helicopter in my final yr as de prject. i designed de whole thing but i can’t seem to figure out how i can get a motor light enough and fast enough to lift de structure. de structure is about 200 grams. with a normal motor it becomes heavier to lift. could you help me with this problem. could you also tell me how i can get a suitable prpeller. what de ratio of de weight of de structure and de motor speed should be. and what de ratio of de propeller diameter to de rest of the structure paramemter should be. plz reply if it is convenient for u.

  4. The major issue facing the recording industry is how to get paid for all the music that is being downloaded, swapped and sold online. Pls check out the alternative to iTunes.
