Ryerson University- helping them out in 2016

(1/3) > >>

Frank v B:
This is just to inform the membership that we have been approached again by Ryerson University's Aeronautics group to help teach them how to fly RC.  There are several components within the faculty working on RC projects (heavy lift, autonomous flight, autonomous quadcopter, etc.).  Last year Graham, Jack and I helped maiden their heavy lift plane at the TEMAC field.  It easily carried 8 pounds on just 4 cells (my battery) when their 6S connector solder joint failed during assembly.  They competed in California and did extremely well.  I believe they placed 3rd.

This year the request came from Jason Naipaul (forum signature jsnaipaul) who registered on our Forum today.  Our involvement is to teach two pilots how to fly RC before the May competition.  Their mission is to be back-up pilots for an autonomous flight competition. 

The neat part for TEMAC is that Ryerson has a lot of high tech hardware that they have volunteered to us on an as-needed basis.  They have made a significant investment in 3D printers, CAD design capability and CNC milling.

I hope to give more details at the Wednesday's pilots meeting.

ps: Temac and the Bramalea RC Flyers have teamed up with Ryerson for about 5 years now.  Our mission is to add practical support to their RC needs.  The original support and request came from John's Hobbies on the Danforth who supplied a lot of the RC equipment to Ryerson but needed help in the flight portion of the hobby.  Yes... Andy...they contacted me about flight instruction and we have fooled them for five years so far ;D

Hey Frank,

I'd like to help. Not sure what the time commitment is though. But if it works, then count me in.

Frank v B:
Thanks Mike.  Will let you know.  The plans may involve indoor training on buddy cords during the winter.  Ryerson is checking into gym availability now.
