Title (EN) LIGHTWEIGHT REMOTELY CONTROLLED AIRCRAFT
(FR) AVION LEGER TELECOMMANDE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An aircraft which is designed for remote controlled slow flight, indoor or in a small outdoor yard or field. The aerial lifting body is defined by a series of lightweight planar or thin airfoil surfaces (A1, A2, A3, A4) arranged in a radially symmetrical configuration. Suspended within the cavity (O) formed by the thin airfoil surfaces (A1, A2, A3, A4) is a thrust generating propeller system (C) that is angled upwardly and that can be regulated remotely so as to change the angle of the thrust vector within the cavity (O) for steering. Lifting, stability, turning, and general control of the direction of motion in flight is accomplished without any formal wings, rudder, tail, or control surfaces.
(FR)L'invention concerne un avion télécommandé destiné à des vols lents à l'intérieur ou dans une petite cour ou un petit champ extérieurs. Le corps portant se définit par une série de surfaces planes légères ou de minces surfaces aérodynamiques disposées selon une configuration radialement symétrique autour d'une cavité centrale, p. ex. selon une configuration diagonale en cube. Un système à hélice générant des poussées est incliné vers le haut et peut être réglé à distance de façon à modifier, pour le pilotage, l'angle du vecteur de poussée dans la cavité. La levée, la stabilité, l'orientation, et la commande générale de la direction de mouvement en vol est accomplie sans ailes, gouvernail, queue ou surfaces de commande à proprement parler.
