Vertical Flight Society Completes Drone Design Competition for Students

Texas A&M Takes Home the Gold Despite the Inclement Weather The Vertical Flight Society Selected the Winners of this year’s Design-Build-Vertical Flight Student Competition, sending the team from Texas A&M home with the gold. The competition assesses student’s ability to draft, develop, and construct a VTOL drone from the ground up, and this year’s wet and windy conditions added an additional level of difficulty on top of the normal trials and travails of the DBVF. Facing winds of 20 miles an hour, gusting up to 40, competing teams had to get knocked down and repair everything in time for another test run.
