The RUASRT has had a large influx of interested undergraduate students in 2016 from a range of disciplines. PhD Student Sam Prudden provided two free tutorials totalling four hours to ensure that the new students can obtain a baseline knowledge of multi-rotor UAS (MUAS) and become active and productive members in the team.
The tutorials covered topics including applications and rules for MUAS, considerations for airframe design and configuration as well as details about propulsion, avionics, payload and communications systems.
These tutorials are the beginning of a new series run by post-graduate volunteers aimed to support both extra-curricular activities and coursework involving MUAS. Each tutorial was video recorded and they are available to RUASRT members.
