Overview for Genesis
Genesis is an unmanned aerial vehicle capable of vertical take-off and landing. This is feasible by four vertical electric lift motors integrated into the system. The general inspiration was obtained from Airbus' Quadcruiser and other contemporary VTOL systems like DJI's Phantom Series.
The landing gear is DJI Phantom 4-esque. Particularly with filleted corners, the landing gear is optimal in a structural sense and a civil-use sense. This is evident as there is no outstanding risk that the landing gear will be caught in tree branches or transmission lines.
The design incorporates a mechanism that will allow the payload bay to be exerted and inserted horizontally as the approach is more practical in contrast to a vertical approach. Lift propellers are 1.92 meters distanced from the payload area to prevent a catastrophic accident when loading the UAV.
The aircraft is broken down into the following predominant parts:
- Main Fuselage which is 1.5m long, dia. varies but does not excede 0.5m
- Tail Fuselage which is 1m long, dia. varies but does not excede 0.5m
- Aircraft wings which have span 3.84m and a chord of .32m.
Two 6S 22.2V LiPo batteries are positioned in series and are located near the payload bay to ease the swap.
