PolyU’s 3rd Design, Build, and Fly (DBF) Team representing PolyU at American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) in Design-Build and Fly Competition

We are AEOLUS, an RC Aeromodelling Team representing PolyU at American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Design/Build/Fly Competition every year.

This contest lets engineering students taste the real-world design experience by providing an opportunity to apply their knowledge practically. The teams are expected to design an unmanned, electric-powered, radio-controlled aircraft that can best achieve the ‘missions’ assigned. The missions and rules will be modified each year to encourage innovation and maintain fresh design challenge for the novel participants. Such a measure ensures the implementation of critical thinking and the originality of the aircraft designed each year.

As a team who enjoys evaluating practical aspects of mechanical theories and the laws of physics to understand their real-world applicability, we are strongly attracted to the opportunities provided by the AIAA DBF Competition. Our team has extended knowledge of aircraft technologies, especially in Aerodynamics, Flight Mechanics, Structure, and Material. We see this competition as a perfect platform for us to test our own ideas in manufacturing an RC aircraft in order to make palpable progression in our subject area.

Our long-term goal is to develop the most efficient manufacturing methods and techniques as we believe that the real value of competition lies in applying the knowledge to the real-world and benefit mankind.
