Hoverone

Gear up for the ultimate showdown of RC hovercrafts! Bring out the engineer in you, as you design your own hovercraft, and test it for speed, maneuverability and handling on various terrains like sand, water and gravel. Design a hovercraft or ACV (air cushion vehicle) that will be tested for speed, maneuverability and handling on various terrains like sand, water and gravel. Build a radio-controlled hovercraft that could complete the specified track in the least possible time.

Round 1: Testing

  • This round requires the participants to drive their hovercraft on the given track of about 8 meters length.

  • The width of the track will be around 1.5m.

  • The teams will be given maximum one attempt.

 Round 2:  Maneuverability

  • This round requires the participants to maneuver their hovercrafts through the given track.

  • The teams will be given a maximum of two attempts.

  • This round is the final round. The top three finalists’ team will be awarded.

  • There is no limit on the weight of the craft.

  • Only DC motors are allowed.

  • Use of ready-made actuators/motors, remote control units, electronic speed controllers and propellers is allowed.

  • Teams should bring their own remote controls, and they must operate only at 2.4 GHz.

  • Ready to use kits and readymade building kits are strictly prohibited.

 

JUDGING CRITERIA: -

Round 1: Testing

  • Teams have to aim for the best lap times. The lap time will be calculated as follows:
  • Lap time = actual time taken to complete the track

Round 2:  Maneuverability

  • There will be in all 5 checkpoints.

  • Crossing each checkpoint awards the participants a set number of points The total points are cumulative that is if a contestant crosses only up to 2nd checkpoint the total number of points he/she earns is 150 points.

To design a hovercraft or ACV (air cushion vehicle) that will be tested for speed, maneuverability and handling on various terrains like sand, water and gravel. It requires the participant to build a radio-controlled hovercraft that could complete the specified track in the least possible time.

F.A.Q:-

Ques: Are there any restrictions on weight of the craft?

Ans:There are no restrictions on the weight.

 

Ques:How many people can control the hovercraft?
