A state where the drone rising up with people can actually jump is released, how did it design

A drone (multi-copter) that enabled stable flight with multiple propellers has high flight performance, but aircraft capable of manipulating a human being aboard such drones has been developed, and the actual flying scene is released It is.

It is the development of an unmanned aircraft development company based in the Netherlands that is developing drones that fly with peopleQuadro UASis. You can see in the movie below how the drone actually lifts up with people on it.

A huge frame came by being towed by a towing trailer. If you lay it sideways, it will protrude from the width of the car, so it is a pattern that is fixed obliquely.

Get off the trailer and prepare for flight. A propeller is attached around the octagonal frame, so that the pilot sits in the center of the fuselage.

It looks like the pilot actually arrived at the seat. It looks like expression looks a bit stiff.

"Pudun !!!" and drone seemingly, the propeller rotates with a faint sound. If you think that the surrounding grass and flowers have swayed greatly under wind pressure ... ....

The drone who put the person floated up! Although it bounced to the ground once, the aircraft was lifted up to the height of 50 to 60 cm or so and it landed soon. It seems that it can be said that it is quite technical skill simply to actually fly a drones carrying such a large aircraft and a real person.

Even saying "make a drone" in a single mouth, I do not have to go through the method of putting a frame together with a steel pipe, placing a lot of propellers and motors, placing a large battery for the time being .... The company assumes that the weight of the aircraft is 55 pounds (about 25 kg), the electrical equipment including the battery - 55 pounds (about 25 kg), and the weight of the person to board is 132 pounds (about 60 kg) The specification of the system is figured out.

Based on a number of mathematical expressions, it is calculated that the static thrust obtained by fitting a 20-inch (about 50 cm) propeller to an output 3 kW motor is 19.37 pounds (about 9.7 kg). We decided to install 16 propellers in order to fly with a total weight of 243 pounds (about 110 kg).

Once the propeller specifications are decided, we will design the aircraft. I studied the optimum design based on the load applied to the aircraft while using a computer and found that a cross shaped fuselage made of aluminum alloy was made and four pillars sit at the center of the fuselage by installing four propellers at the four corners Has been repelled.

In the airframe control system, open source that is widely used in the world of multicopterMultiwii AutoPilotAdopted. Gain stability by feedbacking the actual motion etc. to the aircraft's steeringPID controlThe steering system incorporating it is used.

The drone designed and manufactured in this manner succeeded in actually appearing. The continuous flight time possible with full power is about 2 minutes, so it seems to be said that many challenges remain in order to realize performance that can withstand practical use, but one after another such new It is interesting that vehicles are being developed.

Quadro UAS site can also read detailed commentary such as mathematical formulas used for the design of the aircraft, so it seems to be helpful for those who are interested and want to make their own drone.

It is said that it was the German e-Velo Company that developed "electric multicopter carrying the world's first person".


Here is the movie that shows the first flight by e-Velo. It has 16 electric propellers and shows how the aircraft actually using the balance ball is flying in the landing gear.

Also, without using electric power or an internal combustion engineOnly human powerYou can also watch a movie of a man power helicopter that emerges in the background. The aircraft called "Atlas" developed by the AeroVelo team at the University of Toronto rotates a huge propeller about 20 meters in diameter by turning the pedaling of the bicycle, "It's more than 10 feet (about 3 meters) for 60 seconds with human power Maintain altitude and fly within 1076 square feet (about 100 square meters) "Sikorsky Human Power Helicopter AwardI have successfully won the first time in the world.
