The Queen’s Aero Design Team competes in the Unmanned Systems Canada Student UAS Competition, held annually each spring in Canada. The team builds a small scale fixed-wing plane and multi-rotor drone which are controlled remotely. Using a combination of autopilot software and human input, these unmanned aerial vehicles are used to complete precision tasks. New aircraft are designed and built each year using a variety of design software and techniques, and then constructed in shop. All disciplines and faculties are welcome to join the team, and of course, no experience is required. Come check us out! If you are interested in joining, feel free to email the captains, Andrew Cross and Michael Dowling at aero@engsoc.queensu.ca, or drop by BMH 115.
