Overview for Mercury

Mercury VTOL conventional plane optimized for this mission (long range, cargo transport) focusing on simplicity and safety. Base design for Hermes. Short description of the UAV (complete project description below AND attached): Mercury summary: General design: a simple VTOL conventional plane. 4+1 big props, minimal interference between components, optimized for the required mission Detail:    Landing gear: tricycle type, nose LG + main LG on the belly, avoiding the cargo bay Waterproofness: rubber sealants in joints, waterproof materials and motors Modularity/Versatility: nose dome, wing halves, LG, V-tail, motors’ arms, equipment, motors, props and (attached with spring buttons) easily taken apart Handling: easy to transport and fit in reduced spaces Weight: CG aligned with motors, payload, IMU and parachute, < 25 kg, structure allowed up to 7 kg, carries around 1 extra required payload weight Fail safe (air): all kinds of redundancy, anti-collision, mission control planning and anti-catastrophic failure software readiness Safety provisions (ground): safety switch to arm/disarm drone, RGBW LED indicator, optional props protections Dimensions: the wing is 4 m long, divided in 2 parts, fuselage is 2 m long and 0.85 m high with V-tail and LG Structure Airframe (fuselage, wings, tail): all secondary parts joined to main fuselage CFRP frame with screws and nuts able to be taken apart Equipment (batteries, motors, actuators): 4 hover motors and 1 cruise pusher required with their adapted propeller, ESC and the necessary batteries Avionics: correctly integrated and centered boxes given in the requirements Landing gear concept: nose CFRP straight bar and main CFRP trapezoidal frame with wheels (steerable NLG) Payload Interior dimensions and securing cargo: cargo bay has required dimensions and a fairing around that completes the fuselage aerodynamic shape. It is secured by an anti-slip floor plus elastic bands. It’s released by sliding 4 spring buttons below Frame sheet Base data: 4 to 6 kg of payload at 30 m/s with a medium CL Drag: low drag increases range (or payload weight) Stability: stabilizing wings shape and position, NP at 18% behind the CG gives enough stability Complete description:Mercury brief.pdf (31 pages)
