Abstract

A Fixed Micro Air Vehicle was designed and constructed in order to compete in the 2020 WPI UAV Competition, for which the scoring was based on weight fraction, flight time, payload target accuracy, autonomy, and originality. Some key features of the aircraft were its carbon fiber design, its 6.02 foot wingspan, and unloaded weight of 3.92 pounds. The one flight test performed revealed issues with stability and handling, which could not be resolved due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
