Join AIAA and the AE Faculty on Saturday, April 15th for the annual Student-Faculty softball game at the Complex Fields in Urbana! We’ll be catering Black Dog per usual, so come on down for a fun afternoon of food, softball, and aerospace fun.
AIAA had 3 great exhibits on display this year at EOH! Here are some pictures of our Rocket Races, which have been a crowd favorite for years!
The AIAA squad enjoyed the annual Broomball competition this March!
All of the electronics have arrived! This is what our folding prop and motor looks like. We attempted to connect our electronics together for a test run, but we need some connector pieces in order to properly (and safely) connect everything together. Once we get those, the aircraft should be finished in a matter of days!
This semester, the 3D UAV team has had all of the parts printed and the fuselage has been assembled together. Most of the electronics have arrived and everything should come together within the next few weeks!
This week the FPV team completed laser cutting our new legs, which were optimized for strength and weight. We also installed our new camera. The quad is starting to look somewhat 1984-ish… Our build should be finished next week in time for EOH!
The JetCat tech team has been working on setting up the load cells to record force data in order to capture thrust from the JetCat. We also have been working on computational fluid design of the differnt nozzles we have machined to determine which nozzle is the most efficient.
Hi all! If you’re interested in applying to be on the 2017-2018 AIAA Exec Board, apply for a position at this link by February 27th! Details within.
The FPV team is currently working on designing landing legs that swing up in flight so that the 360 Camera can be provided with an unobstructed view. This week, we printed the mounts that will allow the servos to be mounted to the main body of the quad. They’ll need some refinement, but our first […]
