Hi, I’m looking at reducing the overall vibration in a wildcat helicopter for my university course. due to the cost i am obviously unable to use a real life wildcat so am looking to use a radio controlled helicopter to prove my concept works.
I need to measure the phase of the main rotor head so i can then ensure the dc motor i will use as a “shaker” will be 180 degrees out of phase.
Having read up on optical sensors and accelerometers I am unsure if this is either feasible or what components would be best to use to obtain this information?
Thank you in advance for your expert opinion and input,
