Mere seconds can be the difference between life and death in disaster recovery, so the quadcopters used today may be too slow in locating victims and delivering lifesaving resources.
We will design a drone that uses VTOL (Vertical takeoff and landing) technology in order to utilize the speed of fixed wing drones, while maintaining the maneuvering capabilities of quadcopters in order to quickly locate and deliver resources to victims in disaster zones.
Criteria and Constraints
•Can lift a lot of weight
•Long battery life
Things we would improve with our design
• More aerodynamic
• Easier to use locking mechanism
•Optimize wing shape and blade size
