Please note: At this time, the drone that was used last year for this contest may NOT be used for this year’s Drone Basic Challenge Field Two. If the Hubsan X4 H107L cannot carry the payload, another larger drone should be chosen.

Basic and Advanced Challenge Field One will demonstrate the team’s control of the drone.

Basic Challenge Field Two will require teams to modify the drone to carry a payload.

Advance Challenge Field Two will require first-person view (FPV), also known as remote-person view (RPV), or simply video piloting.
