Fuel Cell Powered Drone -- Airframe

This project’s objective is to integrate a fuel cell into a remote-controlled plane to partially power and extend the flight time. In the coming years, there will be a fully custom RC plane powered solely by an on-board solid oxide fuel cell. ME Team 53 is in charge of sourcing and modifying an airframe for the power systems team to integrate this fuel cell with. This requires researching, designing, and building new wings for the airframe along with building housing for all the required internals of this drone.
