Advanced Class Mission The Advanced Class competition is scored on two categories: static payload and dynamic payload accuracy. Points are awarded for lifting the most payload, similar to regular class, but an additional multiplier is added based on the accuracy of dropping 2 lb. sand bags, representing a humanitarian payload.
Design Philosophy and Drivers The overall team philosophy for M-Fly is to emphasize a collaborative environment that provides members with a hands-on engineering experience to prepare them for industry. The advanced class aircraft was designed with technical emphasis on drop accuracy, flyability/stability, and systems integration.
