Airgineers. Design, build and race your own micro drone

The project allows you to design and manufacture a drone, suitable for the school based competition, Airgineers. Using Autodesk® Fusion 360™, you will be guided through how to develop and optimise a drone design. Lessons will focus on specific competition criteria, including light-weighting, stress testing, photo realistic rendering, and adding sponsorship decals and graphics. We'll also discover how to create engineering drawings, assemble standardised components, and create animations to demonstrate the drone operation. After you have optimised your drone, you will be guided through the additive manufacture preparation process. Finally, you will be able to fly your drone in the Airgineers competition, including racing against other teams and tactically performing specific tasks!
