Assessement of the concept of a propeller working in a slot in the middle of wing of a micro air vehicle

Jacek Mieloszyk , Cezary Galiński


Two configurations of micro-airplanes are compared in this paper. The first, very innovative one, has a propeller working in a slot in the middle of the wing. The second airplane has more classical configuration with a pusher propeller. Advantages and disadvantages of both configurations are evaluated, which makes it possible to assess what are the best possible mission types for each micro-airplane.

Abstract in PolishW artykule porównano dwie konfiguracje mikrosamolotów. Pierwsza z nich, innowacyjna, ma śmigło w szczelinie płata. Druga, bardziej konwencjonalna zakłada wykorzystanie śmigła pchającego. Oceniono wady i zalety obydwu konfiguracji, dzięki czemu można wskazać najbardziej odpowiednie rodzaje misji dla każdego z mikrosamolotów.
