A Mechanical Engineering Project!

     Saturday 2/10 - Manhattan College students Alexander Kavalchuk and Arturo Sosa Lombardo get some help with their Mechanical Engineering project from RCRC members Tony Corvino, George Emer and Bill Leo. Their task was to design and build a flyable aircraft and they are being graded on such things as carrying a payload, flying certain circuits and timed flight. There are strict rules about maximum dimensions and battery type, and they used CADD drawings to design the plane and calculate the CG. Tony was able to perform the first successful test flight and they will be back in a few weeks to finish things up.

The ban on FPV Wing operation has been lifted with exception. Remote long range and directional antennas will no longer be allowed. These are the tripod mounted antenna stations that are made up of directional and omnipolar antennas with a diversity receiver. This also includes antenna tracking mounts as well. Only goggle mounted or transmitter antennas will be allowed and this applies to all aircraft and not just the FPV Wings.
