VTOL NI ELVIS Controls Device—The Quanser QNET VTOL Board 2.0 for NI ELVIS II/II+ is an add-on application board for the NI Engineering Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite II (NI ELVIS II) or NI ELVIS II+. This device has been developed for education to facilitate hands-on, active learning of flight dynamics with a 1 degree of freedom (DOF) helicopter that introduces kinematics, vertical take-off, PI, and PID control. The application board provides a variable-speed fan mounted on a cantilever arm with a high-resolution optical encoder for position measurement. Using the Quanser QNET VTOL Board 2.0 for NI ELVIS II/II+, you can provide experiential-based learning in mechanical, mechatronics, and aerospace engineering.
