This is the first flight video of the Embry-Riddle IARC Quadrotor. This will be our fourth year in the IARC competition, we are moving away from our award winning monocopter platform this year in favor of a quadrotor. It will be fully autonomous by the time the IARC competition rolls around this summer.
Motors: Scorpion SII-2208-1280
Props: Draganfly Innovations 8x4.5
ESC: CastleCreations Thunderbird 36
Tx/Rx: Spektrum Dx6i Tx and AR6100e Rx
Frame: Black sections are FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) printed PolyCarbonate, White section is FDM printed PC-ABS. Build-to-fly time: about 3 hours total for the machine to print all four ducts and about 15 minutes for us to assemble and fly. (not including shipping time from Boeing)
Some info on us:
The Robotics Association at Embry-Riddle is a multidisciplinary student organization that operates Unmanned and Autonomous Vehicle Systems of all shapes and sized. We are the only school on the planet to compete in all 5 major AUVSI student competitions (IGVC, RoboBoat, SUAS, IARC, RoboSub) we also compete in the NASA lunabotics competition.
Hopefully after finals and as things progress more video and information will be posted on:
