Welcome to Our Project

Team Plane! is designing and prototyping an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) for the purpose of aerial photography. The team's baseline goal is to create a prototype capable of remote controlled flight while automatically taking pictures. Once this goal is achieved, the team plans to move on to design an autonomous stabilization and navigation system.

Current Progress


  • We are currently attempting to debug the navigation system. The airplane rudder acts odd in flight, so ground testing has begun. Ground testing eliminates the possibility of wind effecting the navigation system.

  • We want to take more pictures of the nature preserve and of campus.
