Design, Build, Fly is a yearly design competition where teams construct a radio controlled airplane to fulfill project missions. This year's project can be found at aiaa.org/dbf and involves building an airplane that can haul, deploy, and recover a beacon. Join us if you have ever wanted to gain hands-on experience using CAD, learn about electronics and controls, 3-D print, analyze airfoils, fly an RC plane, and much more! There is no barrier to entry and all experience levels are welcome.

The Alphadrone Team is all about going fast. Drone racing is the next up-and-coming sport/esport and Alphadrone has fully embraced the challenge of flying drones at high speeds. The Alphadrone pilots use special headsets to see the course from the perspective of the drone, allowing for incredible 3D maneuvers. The team is currently training for the 2021 Collegiate National Championships in April and meets Fridays from 4:30PM to 5:30PM in the Alphadrone Slack.
