    HOME MISSION
    SCENARIO
    SAFETY VEHICLE KIT COMPETITION REQUIREMENTS REGISTRATION

    To get a jump start on the competition, teams may elect to use some or all of these parts to build a multirotor vehicle. This kit can be used to create a hexacopter with a thrust-to-weight ratio greater than 2, lifting as much as 16 lbs. of payload. The Pixhawk is the autopilot and flight management unit, and the Odroid U3 is the onboard computer for processing images in a precision landing flight scheme.
