Say Hello to the biggest eVTOL in the History of the TU Munich
SILENCIO Gamma is a 100% electric Vertical Take-off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft especially designed to be ultra-quiet. It has two independent powertrains for hover and cruise, combining the simplicity of a quadcopter configuration and the thigh cruise efficiency of a fixed-wing aircraft.
It is designed from scratch via a thoughtful, modular design process and built with lightweight, high-strength materials with state-of-the art manufacturing techniques.
SILENCIO Gamma, the third configuration of the SILENCIO series, has been specifically designed to excel at maximum efficiency.
110 x 25 x 15 cm
The design mission on which the aircraft is based on consists of nine mission segments: taxi, vertical take-off, hover, transition, cruise, looping, transition, hover and vertical landing.
The aircraft is primarily composed of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) and glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) to achieve a lightweight design. Ply- and balsa wood are implemented to provide stability and robustness to the structure. The two hover boom mounts were 3D printed.
