The MAVLab TU Delft team brings together in the delftAcopter all its knowledge to help poor Outback Joe once again. To make the challenge even harder we decided to go for a full electrically powered rescue UAV. As a research institute we are always pushing boundaries of what is currently possible. Our first preliminary energy calculations showed that a full-electric mission would be just possible, realizing we would need the state of the art battery technology, extremely efficient VTOL UAV and unique autonomous control implementations. this resulted in the delftAcopter. A marriage of a biplane wing and a helicopter propeller. The innovation lies in particular in the use of a tailless double-decker combined with one helicopter propeller which is used in both hover and in forward flight of in the most optimal regime.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
