TEACH CONTROLS FOR VERTICAL TAKE-OFF AND LANDING

The Quanser QNET 2.0 Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) board is a versatile system designed to teach and demonstrate the fundamentals of flight dynamics and vertical take-off and landing control. Designed exclusively for NI ELVIS platform and LabVIEW™ software, the system can easily be configured to demonstrate various control techniques, including PID and cascade control.

HOW IT WORKS

The QNET 2.0 VTOL board consists of a high air flow DC fan with a safety guard, attached to a solid aluminum arm. An adjustable counterweight is attached on the other end of the arm. This allows the position of the weight to be changed, which in turn affects the dynamics of the system. The arm assembly pivots about a single-ended optical encoder shaft. The encoder measures the angular position of the arm, i.e. the VTOL pitch position.
