Senior Day spring '06 Project
The senior day recruitment project is to use a Hughes 500 helicopter and install a sound system to simulate the 1970's film "Apocalypse Now"
The following is a detail of the installation. The speakers (not shown) are 3x5's mounted externally at the rear doors.
Converter 1/ AudioAMP:
The helicopter uses a 24V battery and the converter will convert 24VDC to 12VDC
for the amplifier operation.
Converter 2/ CD player
The second converter will convert the helicopter 24VDC to 4.5VDC for the CD player.
Both converters were made by students in the Electronic Technology Program.
The instrument panel includes the power switches and a remote play/pause button for the CD player.
