Abstract : This report is made up of the combined reports of eight separate teams of students who entered the 1997 Design, Build & Fly Competition. The objectives of the competition were to have student teams design, build and fly unmanned remote control electric aircraft designed for maximum range on a limited battery. A "fly-off" took place on a private airstrip at Ragged Island, Md., in April 1997. Winners of the contest: 1st place, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; 2nd, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and University; 3rd, Texas A&M University. The Design, Build & Fly Competition was supported by Cessna, the Office of Naval Research and the AIAA Foundation.
