Home > Winners > #77759


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
iDol II

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Drone

INSPIRATION:
Photographers often adopt some strange postures in order to get a good shooting angle. However, when they want a bird's-eye view picture or video, the only way is to use helicopters but they are too expensive. Therefore, the development of civilian drones has become imminent. Also, the drones need to be compact in size and easy to carry. The exterior design is inspired by F1 racing car, borrowing its characteristic tail wing and streamlined shape, so that iDol II design can give people a feeling that it can has the same speed with F1 racing car in appearance.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
iDol II uses a three-dimensional folding design, with perfectly retractable arms and thrusters to optimize its size. The exterior design is inspired by formula 1 racing car, with a streamlined fuselage and aerodynamic design. It provides adequate cooling design for all components to release heat. iDol ll can take off at an altitude of 5,000 meters, with a top speed of 50 kilometers per hour and a maximum flight time of 21 minutes. It can be connected to a smartphone App and perform its full functions, setting up the location and path of up to 40 flight paths.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
-

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in Shenzhen in April 2018 and finish in January 2019.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Digital and Electronic Devices Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
1.The iDol II housing is injection molded, and the surface texture and high-gloss effect are integrated into the mold without additional post-processing. 2.The tail wing part is painted with a metallic paint and UV coating. 3.Four pedestals are placed in the bottom by a two-color injection molding process for providing a buffer for the unmanned landing.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
Three design challenges: 1.Compact size: For the portability of the drone, the folding method of the arm and the blade is the first difficulty encountered in our design process. The folding method is simple and at the same time, we must avoid the patent problem. 2.Balance and airflow: In order to avoid the interference of the blade during the flight, the blade needs to reach a certain distance in the fuselage. 3.Airframe resonance improvement: this is a crucial issue. In the testing phase, the biggest difficulty is to overcome the fuselage resonance problem.To avoid huge airframe resonance we determined to build three different prototypes for testing and improved it.
