Overview for The Albatross

The design of the albatross as the name suggests, is inspired by one of nature’s largest flying birds- the albatross. The weight, wingspan and aerodynamic conditions of the required UAV and the albatross are comparable. 

The team firmly believes that nature is the best teacher and one should draw inspiration from the same for innovative solutions. The albatross makes use of dynamic soaring and uses the velocity gradients of the atmospheric boundary layer for a very efficient flight. Our team wishes to incorporate dynamic soaring in the future to be as efficient as possible.

Based on an extensive literature survey the aerodynamic characteristics of nature’s largest bird was incorporated into our design as a tribute towards the marvels of Mother Nature.

 The aircraft is naturally stable.
