how high does he drop from? how much does he weigh? does he get a parachute?
Sorry i forgot to mention, yes of course he will get a parachute that is one of the most important things. If it hasa parachute it won't matter how high the drop hight is as it will reach terminal velocity in a short space of time. but saying that it would have to be over 15 so my electronics will have a long enough time to react so that it can eject the parachuter. As of Yet i have only started desigh but i have a target weight of a less than 1kg but my plane can lift more weight than that, it can lift 1.7kg but i want to try keep to my target weight
I'll have a bumper on the front made of a stiff plastic curved to absorbe the landing
something else ou could make is a micro bot which is just about as small as you can make a robot...
I was just reading about that the other day, they are awsome and i hope to tackle something like that sometime this year
@mdmedlin, i think i'll need some thing alot wider than what your wheels were, would it be possible to make them wider and would it add alot of weight
