presentation of the MAV.
Ifju and his colleagues
started their research in 1997 and developed their first micro-aerial
vehicle, or MAV, which was 18 inches, weighed 10 ounces and
powered by a gasoline engine. Today, they've refined it down
to a battery-powered model only 5 inches long and weighing a
mere 2 ounces.
A real innovation
for this vehicle. A conception program help to design the structure
and parameters. It's easy after to realize 3D FAO tool for modeling.
Structure builded with flexible linen (linen for kite or rubber)
for the wing, reinforced with carbon fiber. Body and rudders
are made with carbon fiber.
Double fixed rudders on bottom of the wings. The one under,
support camera, command, and protect for landing.The
flexible structure limit reactions of the plane and increase
and receiver from modeller technology . Propulsion
using brushless inrunner motor.
Propeller APC fixed. Prop safe adaptator.
Lithium Ion Polymer batteries.
