Research: Long Range Fixed Wing Fuel Drones
- Status: Closed
- Premie: $190
- Mottatte bidrag: 15
This is a research competition, the results will be public for all interested to observe.
The project is to find the most suitable drone that is capable of:-
Flying 50-100 miles using fuel-based power (e.g. gas)
Capable of being assembled using components (e.g. 3d printing, buying gas radial engine)
Aquistiion cost of < $10,000
Capable of payload between 2kg and 5kg
For this project: ignore the issue of camera and long-distance communications.
Focus on the aerodynamics, self-assembly, fuel efficiency etc.
VTOL is preferred - but not neccesary.
Do not post an electric drone or quadcopter.
