2018 3D-Printed Aircraft Competition Results

Friday, July 13, 2018

More than a dozen teams from UTA, Baylor, the University of Nevada-Las Vegas and Virginia Tech competed in the second annual 3D Printed Aircraft Competition at UTA's Maverick Stadium on July 14.

Prizes were awarded in two categories: fixed wing, where all lifting surfaces must remain fixed, and rotary wing, where a significant proportion of lift is generated by rotation of components or of the aircraft's entire body.
