PROJECT EREBUS

Erebus is a project combining remote flying technology with bat conservation. The idea is to build a small plane that houses a microphone in order to record bat populations.

Tom A & Tom M had to build a RC plane with as large a wing area as possible that also had to be light and strong. They chose Kapa foamboard supplied by us to form these wings.

The wing stiffness is partially provided by a 2m carbon fibre spar which runs the length of the wing and is held in place using foamboard 'formers' which help create the aerofoil shape of the wing.

Full details of the project can be found at projecterebus.weebly.com

ARCHITECTURAL MODELS
