  PredimRC  
   
   
     

Presentation : Franck Aguerre

"What for?"
This Excel software allows effective and quick pre-demensionnig of an R/C airplane or glider, and gives a realistic estimate of its overall performance.
PredimRc compute also the best settings for the model, to avoid the very classic crash due to inadapted center of gravity. In this way, PredimRc can be very helpfull to verify the settings of model built from a kit or a plan.

Prerequisites
The only knowledge required is minimal aerodynamic concepts. PredimRc is very simple et didactic, so the user can easily understand the influence of each parameter to the performance or the settings. In order to better guide the user, most data have comments, often with typical values.
To go further, see the reference site: www.chez.com/aerodynamique, both complete and accessible.

Operation:
PredimRC is divided into 5 sections (tabs), which follow logically through the design of the model. Each section is dedicated to a particular point of the conception process :
- Airfoils : a data base of 9 generic airfoil is provided, extensible to 36 airfoils
- Aspect ratio : choice and optimization for high performance aircraft
- Overall geometry : drawing of the aircraft, optimization of the lifting distribution, rating of the performances (sink rate, lift-to-drag ratio), et above all precise calculation of the center of gravity and angles of incidence.
- Motorization : calculation of the power equilibrium in flat path, and estimation of the climbing rate
- Servos : calculation of torque for all classical controls and pendular elevator, and optimization of pitcheron system

Lexicons data handled:

Input to enter:
- Wing geometry
- 3 wing polar airfoils
- CM0 and Alpha0 profiles
- Stabilisator geometry
- Fuselage geometry
- Cz stabilized flight
- Arm
- Weight
- Data engine

Input pre-programmed:
- Stabilisator CM0 = 0, ie the center of thrust at 25% of the average stabilisator chord
- Gradient of the curve Cz = f (impact profile), set to 1 / 11
- 3 stabilisator generic airfoils

Elements Release:
- Data bases (scope, size, wing loading)
- Elongations calculated / optimized
- Curves of distribution of Cz and lift VLM
- Calculated center / rear
- Timing of the wing
- Setting of stab
- Volume of stab
- Margin of stability
- Performance curves according to flight speed:
    ~ Polar speeds
    ~ Finesse
    ~ Power consumption / power (intersection = speed of flight)
    ~ Curve Cz / airspeed
- Flight data engine (autonomy, speed climb, ...)



Supplemented, improved, here is the latest version of PredimRC (translated in english by Florent Violain, many thanks to him !)

What new :

  • Improved interface
  • COG calculation and AOI improved
  • Polars interpolation tools separated from the main application
  • Addition of generics airfoils (micro, trainer, multipurpose, quick, flying wing, aerobatic, racer/F3F/F3B/60 with or without flaps)
  • Additon of a customizable airfoil database

The guide (V2.1) does not change at this time because the features are the same to that provided by previous releases.

The guide does not change at this time because the features are essentially identical, the guide to 2.1 is sufficient to find them.
