General Info

The REC Foundation Aerial Drones (RAD) competition engages students in hands-on STEM learning as they pilot aerial drones and compete in an evolving game, building lifelong skills in communication and leadership and to help their futures in a dynamic workforce. 

Visual Line of Sight Racing (VLOS) Package Delivery & Racing, is played on a 30ft x 51ft Feild. Teams are tasked with two challenges using the same field configuration. In the package delivery challenge one drone at a time will navigate an obstacle course and successfully deliver a payload accurately to a scoring location before returned to where it started. The head-to-head race is around the obstacle course where the objective is to successfully navigate three (3) labs of the course with a faster time than your opponent.
