Homework Help: Vibration absorber for a quadcopter?

  1. Apr 2, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I am supposed to examine the effectiveness of a vibration absorber design for a quad copter. Attached is a picture of the quad copter and the design; basically each of the spring dampers would be attached to an arm of the copter.
    In the case of a single quad copter arm, what would be the primary system and what would be the absorber system?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know the absorber system is the spring damper and the base plate. but for the primary system, is it just the arm or should i include the motor and the blades?

    How would you normally work it out?
    What is is it that you want to stop shaking about?
