Waterproof Quadrotor Design for VuYoo

Final Render in Solidworks

The goal was to design a water proof drone capable of autonomously following surfers while satisfying requirements of 40 minutes of flight time and an All-Up Weight of less than 1.6kg.

  1. Ran a script in Javascript to select the most optimized components from ecalc.
  2. As part of a team of two, designed the drone from bottom up in Solidworks.
  3. Solved heating issues for the electronics that were caused due to water proofing.
  4. Was also responsible with directly dealing with the vendors to ensure that the cost is <$1200 while ensuring the drone is user friendly and has great aesthetics.
