Toothless was our first IMechE UAS Challenge drone, it participated in the 2019 edition of the event. The team settled on a unique octa-plane configuration, which means 8 motors are used for VTOL and one for forward motion. A crash unfortunately caused an early end for Toothless, forcing the team to abandon their pursuit of a prize.
