Can you figure out how to make the best helicopter? Enter by 12 July 2019 for a chance to win a DJI Mavic 2 Drone. 

The challenge

Figure out how to increase flight time without jeopardising the helicopter’s stability and flying capacity. There are many factors that affect flight time.

To properly uncover how factors jointly affect the response, use design of experiments - a practical and ubiquitous approach for exploring multi-factor opportunity spaces. Are you up to the challenge?
