UT Dallas Drone Racing

About Us

The Next Big Thing at UT Dallas

The Drone Racing Team is a dedicated team that provides our students the opportunity to design, build, and race FPV drones in local and national competitions. Our mission requires us to continually optimize our designs and expose students to the engineering aspects of real-world applications, such as aerodynamics/systems and controls/programming.
