IDEA

Hello guys!! I am new at this project, but I want to help!! You are doing an amazing job!

I saw the rendering of the car design and it is great! I would just like to add a comment about the clearance between the ground and the tip of the propellers… Do you already know the length of the propellers that will be used?

I am afraid we will have to move the motors up, so we have enough height to fit the propellers. We dont want a very small propeller with a super high RPM… The motors would probably overheat! And without the wheels being hit by the airflow, we would also have a better efficiency!

What do you think?

John successfully modeled the weight of our design using 3D simulation/CAD tools.

Yes CAD software can give us accurate weight estimation
But we need to assign material accurately

Actually we don’t have a number ,above i have just explained how weight estimation can be done in CAD
give me some time i will try to analysis the weight
