This indoor challenge consists of lifting up a 500-gram payload 50 cm above the ground during 1 minute. “50 cm above the ground” means 50 cm counted as the vertical distance between the lower part of the payload and the launch pad which will be placed on a table. The UAV can be attached to the payload before the flight. The winner of this challenge will be simply the team with the smallest electrically powered UAV capable of lifting that 500-gram payload under the above conditions. “Smallest” means the UAV which maximum dimension in flying configuration is the smallest among the competitors. Because of the flight regulations, the UAV takeoff weight should be less or equal to 1.5 kg (so that the flying vehicle will not exceed 2 kg including the payload). “Maximum dimension” is defined as in the Size factor section (above). RC-control mode will be allowed for this challenge.
