We design, build, and fly unmanned aircrafts for competitions. Our team is divided into four subgroups: Aerodynamics, Design, Proptronics, and Structures.
The Aerodynamics group focuses primarily on wing design and testing. They work with design and structures to determine aircraft sizing for the appropriate wing design. This team also perform simulations with different airfoil and wing designs to determine the best configuration for the competition.
The Design group work on general design of the plane according to the competition’s rules. They focus on finding optimal designs. This group works closely with the Structures team to design necessary parts.
The Proptronics group is responsible for electronics and propulsions of the aircraft. They perform necessary calculations to test different motors, select batteries for the chosen motor, and determine the use of servos, wiring, and coding that needs to be done for the plane. Members of this team get experience in programming different servos and receivers.
