Our Vision for the Future

Our team is eager to continue our success in future competitions and inspire more students to pursue their passion for drone and aerospace technology. We are committed to fostering a community of innovation and collaboration, where students from all backgrounds can come together to tackle the challenges of the drone and space industry.

The Importance of PCBWay's Support

As a team dedicated to designing and building advanced drone technology, we face challenges in sourcing and manufacturing parts within our budget and timeline. PCBWay's quick prototyping capabilities would allow us to provide valuable design experience and feedback to more members of our team, enabling them to expand their skills and knowledge for all of our ongoing projects.

Our Ongoing Endeavors

1. Hyperion:

Descript_ion: Experienced students are developing a fully in-house bi-liquid engine that will be integrated into our competition drone, aiming to fully realize our goal of achieving manned flight by 2027.

2. Project Icarus:

Descript_ion: A research project aiming to develop advanced navigation and control technologies for our drone, with a prototype currently in development.

How PCBWay Can Help

PCBWay's support would enable us to develop more efficient and effective drone technology, inspiring the next generation of aerospace enthusiasts. We are excited about the opportunity to collaborate with PCBWay and achieve our goals through their support.
