Servo System Design for Dual Pilot Ultra Light Aircraft

  • 林 田龍平

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have been widely studied and used But most UAVs are not capable to carry on high payload missions Development of large UAVs demands high investment However conversion from ultra-light aircraft (ULA) into large UAV can economically solve the cost problem This thesis proposes a large UAV solution using ULA for high mission requirements Using electrically driven lever by reserving the original control sticks the ULA can be switched for manual or fly-by-wire mode and then transition into autopilot mode Based on computer aid design to realize the proposed idea a complete flight mechanics is manufactured and integrated into a dual mode ULA for UAV This thesis verifies the dual mode operation on ground tests for its feasibility and controllability unmanned ultra-light aircraft (UUL)
