sUAS Aerodynamics

 


 

sUAS Aerodynamics

While many purchase an sUAS and start flying on their own, it’s usually through trial and error before they master the complexities of flight dynamics. This course walks you through fixed wing and quad copter aerodynamics, including controls, stability and stalls. From basic flight principles to air movement over the airframe, weight, drag and wake turbulence, you will gain a better appreciation of aerodynamics, and gain a higher personal expectation for your flight operations.

Fixed Wing Stability

1. Longitudinal Stability
2. Effects of Center of Gravity
3. Aircraft Control Surfaces: Ailerons, Elevator, Rudder

Controls on Quadcopters

1. Pitch, Roll, Yaw
2. Rotor Directions
3. Airflow
4. Stalls

 

Fixed Wing Stalls

1. Reasons
2. Progression
3. Recognition
4. Recovery
