RC helicopter project.

  1. Mar 26, 2015 #1
    Hi everybody,
    I am a native of Bhutan and have been always contemplating on building a RC helicopter for myself. In this regard,I have studied helicopter aerodynamics and want to swing into action.
    The momentum theory seems a bit easy to comprehend and perform calculations there. But I'm unsure of how to use 2 dimensional airfoil data for performing calculations using the blade element theory.
    Thanks for any help in advance.

    If I were doing this, I would buy a kit or a pre-made one and play around w/ it to get practical experience before trying to design my own. Just a suggestion.
