Engg student builds chopper model

The remote controlled chopper is the product of eight months of hard work put in by Vinod, a mechanical engineering of the college, and his guide Assistant Professor G Arthrodavis. The project cost them Rs 1 lakh.

This can be used to patrol border areas, to track the movement of extremists, to study extreme weather conditions and for many other operations that cannot be undertaken by manned helicopters.

Vinod said the mini helicopter can be controlled using a computer. With a flight range of 2,500 metre, the helicopter will prove very useful for the border police, he said and added that the camera fixed to it will help click pictures and relay it to the computer.
Prof G Arthrodavis expressed hope that the helicopter could be further developed and can be utilised to the maximum extent.

Chairman Dr T Thimmaiah assured that the funds necessary of developing the helicopter will be extended by the college. Many important peopl lauded Vinod for his efforts.
