MILESTONE

A milestone reached

The body of glider is almost ready. Every part of it is made from styro foam and the middle square part is a carboard box. Whole body is covered with toilet paper and glue water solution is applied, the result is hard but light frame…

See if we use such box kind of design then we don’t need to make the nose pointed…But it is better if we of we use more of a glider design, the reason why because balloons are limited to certain heights and is not very efficient at such high heights. We should first use glider design with very long wingspans and suitable aerofoil making the box as compact as possible …The glider with authentic airplane design will loose its efficiency at certain point then we could deploy the balloons . The another important benefit of airplane design is that we can have the glider landed at our planned destination or close to it. If you agree I could give the planned trajectory of take off and landing and design the glider as well.

So i have gone through this thread, i understand that this is your first flyer.

I recomend taking this project step by step. Rather than making a prototype in which you can fit you gps module, parachute, and flight controller. Make a simple hand glider, modify its design to see how the flight time changes. It will also help you do and understand good manufacturing.

I RECOMMEND adding a literrature thread in this page so everyone can know what you have read so far about gliders and flight mechanics.

What I think is fabrication should be done to it with any composite material so that when it goes up it will b strong enough to bear resistance offered by air.at what Mach number will this thing will fly??
