DBFC

Design Build And Fly Competition

Introduction

DBFC is part of the National Engineering Competitions of the STEM organized by GIK to groom the youth by providing an excellent opportunity to the students and faculty from multiples disciplines to involve in the creative activities involved in Design, Build and Fly in collaboration with professionals involved in flying. The aim of such competition is to encourage the youth and to hunt the talent to ultimately take them to international level competitions in the years to come.

Design Constraints

  • The aircraft should be designed in Pusher Configuration, like a Single or Twin Booms pusher or any other pusher configuration.
  • The wingspan of the aircraft should not be more than 2.5 meters.
  • The weight of the aircraft should not be more than 3 Kg (For all missions).
  • Lithium Polymer (LiPo) battery is allowed. The battery should not have a rated capacity of more than 2200 mAh and the rated voltage should not be more than 12 V.
  • The teams must use transmitters and receivers with telemetry capability (for example Turnigy TGY-i6). The receiver should relay the voltage of the battery during flight to the transmitter using an on-board voltage sensor. Mission Constraints
  • Aircraft will use ground rolling take-off and landing:
  • Missions will simulate take-off from a small austere field.
  • The aircraft must take off within 60 ft.
