Dronetrix

GENERAL RULES

  • Each team should comprise of a maximum of 4 members and should use the same quadcopter for both the rounds.
  • The size of the quadcopter should be between 220mm and 500 mm measured diagonally along the arm (without propeller) The frame can be ready-made or self built.
  • There are no constraints on the weight of the quadcopter. Any flight controller can be used. Preference to lower generation flight controllers and self-programmed boards will be given in case of a tie.
  • All teams are expected to bring their own set of receiver and transmitter. The teams can share the receiver and transmitter set if they want.
  • In any case, the drones should not fly out of the specified arena. Failing to follow this might invite immediate disqualification.
  • Organizers are not bound to provide any hardware or technical assistance. Organizerís decision will be final and binding.
  • This event is open to all college students with valid ID cards
FORMAT

  • ROUND 1:
    To test flight capabilities of the pilot and the drone, this round will check the teams on tasks involving simple skills like hovering, take-off and landing of the quadcopter. The pilot just needs to complete the given tasks to qualify for the next round.
  • ROUND 2:
    This round will test the pilot to their limits. The pilots will be asked to perform some tasks involving flying their drone through loops and arcs. There will be points for each loop and the scores will be normalized for drones of different sizes. The point scheme will have weightage on time.
    Obstacle 1:

    Quadcopter has to go through four rectangular loops to earn maximum points. Loops sizes are different and points are according to how small the loop is. It's not mandatory to go through all loops, its accoring to your own convinience. Difficulty will be same for all type of quadcopter, as loops sizes will be changed according to size of quadcopter. So no biasing will be there. In this round weightage will be given to number of loops covered and time taken.

    Obstacle 2:

    In this part of round a path will made of various turns. Quadcopter has to follow the path without going out. There will be markers on the bundary, some markers will ask you to go to last checkpoint while others will result in point deduction. Here your control will be checked and points will be awarded on how fast you complete the track.
  • It is advised to carry spare batteries, propellers and other tools required.
    In case of any issue organizers decision will be final.
  • Apart from top 3 positions there will be prizes for participants crossing certain checkpoint barrier.

ABOUT
ďTo invent an airplane is nothing. To build one is something. To fly is everythingĒ

In a distant parallel universe, the world is under the threat of unparalleled beings who attack from above, whose skills in air are so miraculous as if they wield wind. The world, under those dark spirits, is short of people with skills in air. That world has sent us a grant for recruiting people who can make effective design for a remotely piloted aircraft which can exhibit its maneuverability and make a worthy impression at the air show.
So, my fellow beings on earth, this is opportunity to use your designing creativity and maneuvering skills to save the world in the parallel universe. Your task is to design and build a remote-controlled aircraft using only electric motors adhering to the given specifications, which can complete the given tasks and land safely in the landing zone.

RULES

Round 1

A team can consist of maximum 5 members. The members can be students of different institutes.
  • The aircraft must be launched from the launch zone of the arena (shown in the figure). The person launching the aircraft must be present within the launch zone at the time when the aircraft leaves his/her hand (if hand launched). Also, the plane should take-off within a certain distance (as shown in the figure).
  • The team must fly within the specified boundaries shown in the figure. Violation will lead to disqualification of the team.
  • Each team will have 3 trials to complete the task.
  • The maximum time for each team will be 5 minutes within which they have to complete the task including all necessary repairs between each trial (if required). Time for each team starts with the launch for the 1st trial.

Round 2

  • Each team will have 2 trials. The better of the two will be considered for judgment. N.B: Use of the 2nd trial is optional if 1st trial is successful.
  • The aircraft can be hand-launched from the launch zone or can take off from the ground for extra points (shown in the figure). In case of hand launching, the person launching the aircraft must be present within the launch zone at the time the aircraft leaves his/her hand.
  • Final payload position should be inside the loop.
  • Any points earned between P1 and P2 carry a 2x multiplier, but this only applies if the aircraft passes through both successfully. Passing through P1 or P2 is NOT compulsory.
  • Any points earned between L1 and L2 carry a 3x multiplier within the specified region if the aircraft passes through both L1 and L2 successfully. However, if only one of the rectangular loops is passed, a 1.5x multiplier will be applied. Passing through the loops is NOT compulsory.
  • Landing should take place within the landing zone. Landing will be considered successful only if the touchdown point is after the starting line of the landing zone and the whole of the aircraft body is within limits of the landing zone after stopping.
  • Bonus points will be awarded for soft-landing. A landing is termed as soft-landing if the propeller is undamaged and all parts of the aircraft remain attached to it after the aircraft comes to halt.
  • It is not necessary to follow any fixed path during the contest. However, a sample path has been provided in the arena diagram.
  • Maximum time for successful completion of the task is 15 min. This time limit includes the time for both the chances, repairs and any other maintenance work (if required).
  • The team should complete the task in minimum possible time to earn more points. However, participants can try to perform more manoeuvres by taking more time.
  • Time of flight starts as soon as the aircraft is in air and stops when the aircraft finally comes to halt.
  • No partial marks will be awarded for the half-done task.
  • Organizers hold the right to modify rules at any point of time before the competition starts and participants will be notified accordingly either through mail/call or at the venue.
