Introduction to Glider A glider is an unpowered aircraft that requires assist in take-off and it will glide through the air (or falling, with style) General Parts of a Model Glider: Fuselage Wing Tail WING FUSELAGE TAIL
Tail & Fuselage Tail: •Provide Stabilisation to the Model Glider •Also provide control to the glider (On RC model) Types of Tail Considered: •Conventional Tail (Fuselage Mounted) •T-Tail •V-Tail Fuselage: •Body and Support of the Glider •Generally where the load is carried (Battery, servos, passengers etc..) Design Consideration: •Balsa Frame with hollow spaces •2D Structure (Very high length-to-thickness ratio)
Wing •Lift Producing Part of an Aircraft •In model glider, as it is unpowered (free-flight), wing is used as control surfaces and also controlled descent mechanism •Type of Wings Structure of a Wing
Design Specification •Requirements: • Longest Hang-time • Furthest Glide Distance • Wingspan of at least 1 meter •Available Materials: • Balsa Wood • Foam Board •Specifications:** • Wingspan: 1 meter • Aspect Ratio: ~10 • Length: 80cm **All these are subject to change Glider References: F3K Competition
