Automated VTOL using Contra-rotating motor
The project consists of a flying object which holds altitude and hover at a stable state. The flying object is to use the VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) technique with the aid of a contra-rotating system with fixed pitch propellers. Three sensors are used in order to complete an automated project. The infrared sensor keeps real-time measurement of the altitude, gyro for roll and pitch movements and accelerometer which measures the X and Y g-force measurements. Mini servos and are used to arrange the orientation of the system and the contra-rotating speed varies depending on the measurements obtained by the IMU board. A APC220 Wirelss serial Data Module is used to determine the system’s flight mode. The system is under the control of Arduino MEGA microcontroller and is powered by a 3 cell 4000 mAh Li-Po battery.
