“To invent an airplane is nothing. To build one is something. But to fly is everything.”
“To fulfill the dreams of all those minds dreaming day and night of creating their own wings to explore the sky. To furnish your passion of building your own flying objects and make them fly”.
Here comes the Robotzindia V5.0 competition
RC plane modelling is a hobby and sport activity that allows to study the foundations of the aeronautical theory and the practice of the flight, the knowledge of materials and structures. The hobby aspect involves building and assembling model aircraft, and the sport part involves the flying. So, use your innovative way to design your own RC plane.
Design a RC Controlled Plane that should cover the maximum distance in less time with great stability. It should be able to complete the tasks given & drop payload in stipulated drop- zone in each round of the competition.
The event consists of 2 rounds.
ROUND 1:
  • The round 1 will be the Qualifier.
  • This round concentrates on the time of flightalone. Only two trials will be given for a team and the best out of it will be considered.
  • Besides, a free flight (without constraints) timing of the plane will be considered along with the score points.
  • Separate points will be allotted for the free flight of the plane.
  • The model should fly within the stipulated boundary limit without much deviation,Drop the Payloadand take a ‘U’ turn around the pole and must return back to the start line at minimal time.
  • Points will be allotted based on time of flight only.
  • Updated LOG BOOK should be brought along with the robot at the instant of the competition which will add you credits. Improper logbook details will lead to disqualification.
  • Judges decision will be the final.
Regional / Zonal center near you. Students will be informed for their zonal centers.
ROUND 2:
  • The selected teams in the semi-finals will be allowed to enter the finals
  • The planes are tested for the control and stability. It must go through all loops present, Drop Payload at designated place and take a ‘U’ turn around the pole and pass through all loops again on the way back to start line and land in minimal time.
  • .
  • Only two trials will be given for a team.
  • It should be able to land on a target region at the finish line. Use of landing wheels is permitted.
  • Landing should be proper and if the model topples during landing, the trail will not be taken into account.
  • BFS (Built from scratch) and RMK (readymade kits) will only be allowed to compete.
  • -->
  • Updated LOG BOOK should be brought along with the robot at the instant of the competition which will add you credits. Improper logbook details will lead to disqualification.
  • Judges decision will be the final.
EXTRA POINTS WILL BE AWARDED ON THE BASIS OF:
Ability to explain the model and the principles of design
Stability
Materials used
Aesthetics of design
Innovation
Venue: The final round will be held in Chennai.
Schematic Arena: Download Arena

ROUND 1:
ROUND 2:
The landing area will be defined at the instance of competition only.
  • The team should have a maximum of 5 members only. Students should be from same schools with a valid ID cards and ID card should be brought in each rounds of the event.
  • When the event occurs outdoor, complaints regarding unfair advantage/disadvantage of weather conditions are unacceptable.
  • Materials like Balsa wood, foam, cardboard and paper can be used to build the plane.
  • A Completely Ready-made model is not allowed.
  • Wing span should not exceed 100 cm.
  • Motor should not be more than 1000kv, Propeller diameter should not be greater than 10 inches.
  • Only electrical motors are allowed. The use of IC engines or any other means of providing thrust is prohibited.
  • Plane weight should not exceed 3 kg including payload (min 500g to max 1kg)
  • Battery should be maximum 12V. 3s Li Po battery can be used.
  • Use of Dual frequency Remote Control(2.4 and 5.8 Ghz) is required for all aircraft competing in the competition. If the participants want to use any other frequency, they will have to inform the organizers in advance.
  • The models can have powered takeoff with a landing gear or can be launched manually by a person standing at ground level.
  • Components replacement is allowed for each rounds. But not during the event occurrence. But, only in the case of irreparable damage, after being assessed by a coordinator.
  • Team should have a “Team name” (a unique name to be validated from the robotzindia.com site), “Logo” for your team name.
  • The participants of RobotzIndia v4.0 competition can compete with the same “Team Name”.
  • A team should have a leader to interact with media, RAAIF and other audience.
  • Decision of the judges will be final in all the circumstances.
  • The sample report and logbook sample pages are available in the DOWNLOAD section of the RobotzIndia website.
