TO: Professor Oleg Likhatchev FROM: Michelle Abercrombie RE: Helicopter analysis DATE: September 10, 2007 Abstract The helicopter was dropped from a constant height with varying parameters in the blade length and width as well as body length. After compiling data, it was determined that the helicopter flew in the air the longest, an average of blank seconds, when the blade length and width were at the longest and widest setting, and the body length was at its shortest setting. However, the standard deviation of this combination was greater than that of a helicopter that didn’t stay in the air as long. Introduction The purpose of the helicopter experiment is to determine which combination of levels and factors maximizes the amount of time the helicopter spends in the air. There are three factors, and two levels, however only four different combinations were used. The lightest weight of the body and the maximum blade span was predicted to stay in the air the longest. No one in the team has much experience with this experiment prior to the assignment. Materials and Methods
