We’re excited to announce that we were selected by an independent government panel as one of the 12 finalists for the UAVForge Final Fly-Off! We’d like to extend our appreciation to all of our supporters for their faith, encouragement, and confidence, and to other members of the UAVForge community for providing constructive criticism. Given that we were selected from an initial pool of more than 40 teams, we are honored to have reached this point in the competition. We could not have done it alone: many thanks to our sponsors, supporters, and fellow competitors!

In the coming months, we plan to address our system’s challenges as noted by the UAVForge community. Our first and foremost priority is to rebuild our vehicle for further stability and performance flight testing. Since the initial concept phase, our airframe has evolved significantly as we refined our design. In addition, more detailed analysis will allow us to systematically improve our flight performance. We’ve learned a lot from this experience, and we look forward to showcasing our final design at the Fly-Off in May!
We are currently looking for ways to improve our capabilities through collaboration and financial support. As always, we welcome your continued input in the following months through messages and comments on our website.
Thanks again for following us, and congratulations to the other UAVForge Fly-Off finalists!
