Share post:


A crew of six college students within the College of Utilized Sciences Higher Austria’s light-weight development and composite supplies course labored with eight industrial companions to design and construct a digital camera drone over an 18-month interval. The undertaking is a part of the Light-weight Design and Composite Supplies diploma program, which FACC launched in cooperation with the Higher Austrian College of Utilized Sciences in Wels in 2018. The light-weight digital camera drone latest efficiently accomplished its maiden flight. 

Hexcel Neumarkt supplied the HexPly M901 and HexPly M78.1 carbon fiber prepreg supplies used for the touchdown gear and the fuselage of the drone. The prepregs had been utilized in mixture with woven and unidirectional carbon fiber reinforcements for the fuselage, which was cured in an autoclave, whereas the touchdown gear was laid-up and cured in a press. The usage of composite supplies allowed the crew to scale back the structural mass of the digital camera drone by 42%.
