Airplane Frame

The Team around the development of the airplane frame is working on the construction of a fixed wing frame with a stable flight for the Robot Challenge. A first prototype has already been finalized and was tested in May. Our Instagram feed shows some videos of its flying behavior. One of the biggest challenges we’re facing is keeping the overall weight of the frame as low as possible, in order to deliver optimal maneuverability to the teams who will then go on and apply integration and navigation. To get an idea – the prototype as of now with all electronic equipment weighs a total of 39,8 gram. The above mentioned prototype¬†is currently being revised and will be optimized over the course of the next few weeks.
