  1. 1. Tim Welk
  2. 2. Product Goals <ul><li>Design an amphibious RC plane </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Water, air, land manuvering </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Develop Target Audience </li></ul><ul><li> Who will want to purchase product? </li></ul><ul><li>Product must be cost effective </li></ul><ul><li> Reasonable Price? </li></ul>
  3. 3. Step 2: Market Research <ul><li>Research was conducted on similar RC products that had similar specifications. </li></ul>Figure 1: Market Research Product Size (wingspan) Price (Listed on Tower Hobbies) Related Specifications Great Planes Seawind Amphibian 71” $ 329.97 Large Wingspan Can land/take off in water Propeller in rear Goldberg Eagle 2 ARF 63” $119.99 Propeller in front Simple landing gear layout Great Planes Seawind Seaplane 39.5 “ $109.99 Large Wingspan Can land/take off in water Propeller in rear Phoenix Dolphin 40 61” $99.99 Front Propeller Simple landing gear layout
  4. 4. Design Phases <ul><li>After market research, I then made several rough sketches of a proposed plane design </li></ul>Figure 2 A-D : Proposed and Final Designs A B C D E
  5. 5. Design A (Landing Gear) <ul><li>Landing gear inside fueslage </li></ul><ul><li>Won’t interfere when landing in water </li></ul><ul><li>May be subject to water damage </li></ul>
  6. 6. Design B (Landing Gear) <ul><li>Landing gear assembly stored in wing </li></ul><ul><li>Laid out horizontally (perpendicular to fuselage) </li></ul><ul><li>Lowered 90 degrees to operational position </li></ul>
  7. 7. Design C (Plane) <ul><li>Propeller on nose of plane </li></ul><ul><li>Battery and Motor stored in Fuselage </li></ul>
  8. 8. Design D (Plane) <ul><li>Propeller towards rear of plane </li></ul><ul><li>Motor and battery stored in rear as well </li></ul><ul><li>Would not interfere with plane function while in water </li></ul>
