A group of masters students from the Queen Mary, University of London, have recently designed is a solar powered remote controlled helicopter prototype for multipurpose applications, their creation is dubbed “the Solarcopter”. Its first prototype could fly only from energy generated from a photovoltaic panel, but with the help of a reserve battery that was also charged by the copter’s solar panel. The model was then further improved, so it can fly, take off and hover without the need of the reserve battery. The students have conducted many tests to enhance its potential and have used various engineering software to develop the prototype further. In the nearest future the Solarcopter could be used for surveillance, search and rescue, cheaper transportation, and even traffic management. The students are currently refining the prototype’s design and plan to add cameras, GPS systems, and other useful features to its design.
