Load-response Reduction

The uniquely bent wing allows the aerodynamic forces to unload, decreasing the strain by more than 10% and the bending displacement by over 4.8%. The high loading area is reduced by more than 25% comparatively according to our analysis.

Turbulence Reduction

The bird-inspired wingform decreases the fluid sheer stress in the middle of the wing, making the layout possessing a cruising efficiency as good as the theoretical optimum.

System Engineering

Optimized system design exploiting aerodynamic benefits to the maximum extent.

Low Output, Good Gliders

Our layout requires the propulsion unit to maintain cruising state with a low output. This helps conserve energy and prolongs the flight duration.

The gliding ratio of all S series solutions are above 20.

Light and Agile

Using foam and carbon fiber as the main materials, the self weight of the drone is very low. Meanwhile, the variety of modules enrich the tasks the drone can perform.

SAWTC Test

The experiment wing (for B2/C) has been tested in the Shanghai Automobile Wind Tunnel Center (Conditions Wint Tunnel). Abundant data has been gained in order to validate our design and relevant analysis. We have obtained pressure measurements variance of below 8%, which indicates good fit between predicted and experimental data.

DWT Oscillation Tests

We have carried out oscillation comparison experiments with the desktop wind tunnel in our installaion. Data is obtained with visual collection method.

Data has supported that the high speed wingform design reduces negative aeroelastic responses. The amplitude and frequency are reduced, in experimental figures, by more than 20% and 17% respectively.
