SKYWALKER
Built in 2017, a recent addition to the Team's plane collection. Designed for the AUVSI-SUAS competition, the plane has an endurance of 30-40 minutes of completely autonomous operation of object detection and classification, interoperability, waypoint navigation, flight, take-off and landing. It has a take-off gross weight of 7.5Kgs with a cruise speed of 12 m/s.

SANDY 2.0
A variant of Sandy with the same role as Sandy 1.0 but with twin motors and a camera mounted at front to test the image capture features, and is one of the finest planes built in the team's history. It is a highly stable plane but has capability of vertical loop, roll etc manoeuvers when let loose, thanks to its twin motors. It has a take-off gross weight of 2.25 Kgs and a cruise speed of 12 m/s.

SANDY
A relatively small plane used for testing of individual components. It saw change in airfoil, from thin airfoil to thicker airfoil, compared to all predecessors. This plane was our first test dummy for autonomous flying and has provided excellent results to proceed autonomy to bigger plane.
