My master thesis subject were the predesign of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) of 10 kg dedicated to the capture of 3D videos and images with 2 stereoscopic cameras. For that purpose, we have formed a team of 4 students to accomplish this ambitious task successfully : Gaëtan Wautelet, Jérôme Ligot, Marc Duquenne and Etienne Bizjak. The success of our master thesis clearly depends on the interaction between all the members. Especially, my master thesis is mainly focused on the aerodynamic modeling and flight mechanics study of the future UAVs. In details, my original contributions were :
Finally, the major achievement of our project were the production of a prototype 1:2 from which wind tunnel experiments were conducted to predict the lift and drag coefficients, and the pitch, yaw and roll moment coefficients for the stability analysis of the real UAVs.
