ABOUT

This competition is launched with the vision to provide a unified national platform for students interested in aerospace and related engineering disciplines - to demonstrate their aero-modeling expertise.

TASK

The competition requires the participants to design and fabricate a RC plane (ready made Planes are not allowed) and perform a set of maneuvers.

General Guidelines for the Competition

1. The use of 2.4 GHz radio is required for all aircraft competing in the competition. If the participants want to use any other frequency, they will have to inform the organizers in advance.

Abstract Submission

1. All the participants need to submit an abstract to [email protected] on their aircraft, which should be no longer than 15 pages (A4 size 1.5 line spacing) with standard formatting. The Abstract must document the basic design of the aircraft (dimensions, wing areas, velocity, etc.) and should also explain how their design is suitable for given problem.
2. Along with the abstract, Participants also have to send a zip file containing at-least 5 and no more than 10 photographs of the aircraft while it is being built.
3. The Abstract has to be submitted as per the standard format(you can download the standard format from the respective IIT websites).
4. The Abstract has to be submitted to the respective Zonal competition 20 days in advance of the Zonal event date. E.g. For a Zonal happening on the 4th of January, the Abstract deadline is the 15th of December and so on.
5. The Abstract and the zip file containing the photographs for teams participating in IIT-Bombay Zonal round have to be sent by email to [email protected] with the team details clearly mentioned in the email. The Team ID should be explicitly mentioned in the email subject as well as the filename for both Abstract and zip file.
