I want to attach a banner to a UAV like this:
I have two questions:
- Firstly, is it even possible to fly a UAV like this with the banner visible?
- What sort of design considerations would I have to take into account when attaching a banner to a UAV?
Briefly sketching forces that act on the banner, we can see that there needs to be two strings connecting to the aircraft at
There's also no force that directly counters the weight of the banner, but aircraft tend to solve this problem by simply increasing the length of the banner and having the power to overcome the added air resistance.
