University of Colorado at Boulder 


We are the University of Colorado Boulder Design/Build/Fly team! We design and manufacture a remote controlled aircraft from scratch in compliance with a set of rules drafted by AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) to compete in an international competition. The final aircraft is taken to competition to prove its air superiority over other competing teams. 

If you are interested in becoming apart of our team, we encourage you to contact our program manager, David Walden, whose email can be found in the Team Leads page. He regularly updates the Twitter page, which is good to check in case of impromptu meetups in the RECUV lab. No matter the skill level, major, or year you may be, if you have the will to learn, we welcome you.
