Abstract

A takeoff and landing control of helicopters using a force sensor helicopter is introduced. The system consists of a small electrically-powered helicopter, a flight base under which the focre sensor is set, and a helicopter control terminal which is connected to a system controller. When the helicopter stands on the base, the force sensor outputs data corresponding to the weight of the helicopter. As the operational voltage rises, the helicopter almost take off from the base. Concurrently, the forse sensor output closes to 0. It means that lift force related to force output becomes from 0 N to the value cprresponding to the weight. This paper introduces the design process including system modeling and the experimental results.
