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.
- As part of a team of two, designed the drone from bottom up in Solidworks.
- Solved heating issues for the electronics that were caused due to water proofing.
- 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.
