Flight Theory: Students explore:
What is flight and the four main forces that are at play during flight.
Making aircraft from odd shaped card and foam shapes
Our own variable geometry 'Multichuck' glider kit to refine the flight to get max distance
History of flight
We make flying models of the strangest flying machines that have ever flown using foam
Look at various modern aricraft and their fitness for purpose
Explore purpose of different configurations
Contruction Theory - equipping students to make effective radio controlled planes
We build our own '6-hour' R/C kit planes using our own construction techniques: Flying Wing, PUP I &II
'Bulldog' kit (Low wing sport plane) explores traditional construction methods using balsa wood and built up construction
Using CAD CAM. Starting with 2D laser Cutting moving onto 3D laser cut assemblies and 3D printing.
CAD CAM to replicate existing parts, generate scale models, manufacture parts like ribs in quantity and also to cut materials like balsa and plywood quckly and accurately
RC Theory (on-going)
Students learn the system parts of radio control and how they work.
Students learn Flying techniques - standing view, FPV from indoor planes and flight simulator
BMFA payload challenges
Students enter their designs for the BMFA competition
Bronze,Silver and Gold award - distance challenge refine and existing design or design your own
Hand Eye coordination
Parallellogram of forces
