ACKNOWLEDGMENT

ACKNOWLEDGMENT
Firstly the success of the project was by the grace of the Almighty. This Report would not have been possible without the essential and gracious support of many individuals. Firstly we thank our parents, for their unconditional love and support throughout and having faith in us. We thank Emirates Aviation college instructors and faculty members.

The leadership of Mr. Omar Chafic, project supervisor and instructor, guided us throughout the process of the project and helping us out in various situations. Mr. Nasser Chakra, program manager, guided us through the project and gave us ideas.

Other faculty members, Mr. Kenneth D’ Souza, materials instructor, Mr. Selva Kumar Murgadoss, Mr. Anish Kumar, Mrs. Kavitha, inspired us and provided us space and materials to work in the college.

We acknowledge the support of the EAC, for providing us with a well equipped library, space to work in and for providing us the opportunity to explore our talents.
We also acknowledge the help provided by Mr. Roel, who lent a helping hand in the project work, Mr. Mohammad Rafie and Mr. Aslam, for providing us necessary information.
We sincerely thank you all for having faith in us and helping us to achieve our goal.

INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION
The purpose of this project is to design an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and fly it. UAVs have been proven to be very useful in certain fields such as remote sensing, research, rescue etc. Amongst the wide variety of the UAVs, the project is based on the Russian Military aircraft, Sukhoi Su35 Super Flanker (canard design). The original model of Su35 is scaled down to an RC model (SU-35 Super Flyer). The Su35 is known to perform combat manoeuvres such as the cobra manoeuvre and the high-alpha flight (which is expected to be performed by the RC model), which will be covered in the following chapters. The following pages describe all the events that took place during the construction of the SU-35...
