Unformatted text preview: Lab 11 – Flight Readiness Check (half-lab) Uniﬁed Engineering 1 May 06 Procedure
• Finish getting your airplane ready for ﬂight
• Demonstrate ﬂight readiness on May 4.
• Perform a brief controlled ﬂight during the May 4 ﬂying session, or . . .
• In the lab, show that your aircraft exhibits all of the following:
— Airframe is structurally sound
— Landing gear is functional
— CG is in the correct location (per Lab 8 notes)
— Geometric decalage is correct, roughly 2◦ –5◦ (see Lab 9 “Decalage Angle” sheet)
— Control pushrods are reasonably slop-free and buckle-resistant
— Motor and control surfaces can be actuated by your transmitter
The May 4 ﬂying session will start at 2PM in Johnson. Ending time will be no later than
5PM, although we may ﬁnish earlier if things go smoothly.
In addition to obtaining the lab grade, you should use this session as an opportunity to
practice ﬂying. We will also try to set up the speed timing system for this session.
This lab’s grade is worth 1/2 of the usual lab points. A successful ﬂight will receive 100% of the maximum possible grade. A lab demo will receive anywhere from 0% (no signiﬁcant work done), to 90% (could be ﬂown immediately). 1 ...
