Dragonfly Ornithopter

Post by Sting Auer on Tue Oct 05, 2010 10:19 pm

it still cant take off, but it is now finally controllable!it can't pitch down too well though.

control just like a plane

Code:


// [RCD]
Val
{
   FLAPSPEED(default=0, max=0.7)
   PITCH(default=0, min=-5, max=5, step=5)
   ROLL(default=0, min=-20, max=20, step=10)
   WINGANGLE(default=0, min=-45, max=45)
   WINGS(default=0, min=-60, max=60)
   X(default=0)
}
Key
{
   0:PITCH(step=-4)
   1:PITCH(step=4)
   2:ROLL(step=-4)
   3:ROLL(step=4)
   4:FLAPSPEED(step=0.02)
   5:FLAPSPEED(step=-0.02)
}
Body
{
   Core() {
      S:Frame(angle=-2) {
         S:Trim(angle=90) {
            S:Chip() { }
         }
         S:Frame(angle=-PITCH) {
            W:Chip() { }
            E:Chip() { }
         }
      }
      E:Frame(angle=WINGS) {
         E:Trim(angle=-WINGANGLE) {
            E:Chip() {
               E:Chip() { }
               S:Chip() { }
            }
         }
      }
      W:Frame(angle=-WINGS) {
         W:Trim(angle=-WINGANGLE) {
            W:Chip() {
               W:Chip() { }
               S:Chip() { }
            }
         }
      }
      W:Frame(angle=WINGS) {
         W:Trim(angle=WINGANGLE) {
            W:Chip() {
               W:Chip() { }
               S:Chip() { }
            }
         }
      }
      E:Frame(angle=-WINGS) {
         E:Trim(angle=WINGANGLE) {
            E:Chip() {
               E:Chip() { }
               S:Chip() { }
            }
         }
      }
      N:Frame(angle=-3) {
         N:Frame() {
            N:Weight(angle=-PITCH) { }
         }
         E:TrimF(angle=-ROLL) {
            E:Chip() { }
         }
         W:TrimF(angle=-ROLL) {
            W:Chip() { }
         }
      }
   }
}
Script
{X=X+FLAPSPEED
WINGS=45*_SIN(X)

WINGANGLE=30*_COS(X)
    }




So, what do you think? any tips?

oh and my idea to make it take off is to have the tail coil up like a spring and launch it into the air.

Is this just an improved version of the other ornithopter? If so, it might be better to post it in the same thread.
