  13. All rounds of Tejas will be held at HBTU, Kanpur during Zest .
  14. Judges decisions on any matter will be considered final.

Aircraft Specification

  1. An aircraft (model) is defined as a powered aircraft if it experiences exactly 4 forces during flight, namely lift, drag and weight (due to gravity) and thrust. Note: Parachutes and Para aircrafts do not qualify as aircrafts since they do not have lift. Also airships which contain gases lighter than air are not considered as aircrafts and hence will not be allowed.
  2. Although there are no constraints on size and weight of the aircraft, it is advisable to keep the wingspan less than 1 meter and weight less than 900 grams.
  3. The aircraft must lie in a box of 1.5 m x 1.5 m x 1.5 m in assembled position.
  4. The aircraft should be motor powered. Use of IC (Internal combustion) engine is not allowed.
  5. The voltage of the battery used should not be more than 12V.
  6. It is advisable to include a good landing gear system in the design and construction phase of your aircraft. Remember, taking-off and landing are very important phases of this competition.
  7. The participants are free to use any materials of their choice. However the use of Balsa wood, Styrofoam or Sun Board is advisable. Balsa wood is light and easy to handle and to fabricate, hence is a good choice.
  8. Participating teams are not allowed to use any electronic system that may augment the stability and control of the aircraft, like gyroscopes in an auto-pilot. For the purposes of the competition, no electronic performance enhancement should be used. Remember, the competition is a test of the design, construction and flight performance of your aircraft.
  9. Participants must make all parts of the aircrafts themselves. Usage of Ready-to-Fly (RTF) and Almost-Ready-to-Fly (ARF) kits are strictly prohibited. However, the kit comprising of unassembled cut-pieces of balsa wood is allowed since it requires skilled work to be done upon it and one can assemble it to his or her advantage. Also use of readymade actuators/motors, remote controls is allowed. Note: Any team violating the above rule will be disqualified immediately.

Qualification Round:

			ARENA (Refer to arena layout) 
  
  
1.	The aircraft is to be flight tested in an open field.  
2.	The runway is of a total length of 10m and width of 2m.  
3.	The Hurdle is at some distance from the end of the runway. The aircraft has to come in the width of the hurdle for qualification.

			

Instruction For Qualification round:

 
	Maximum 2 attempts will be provided to the teams, best of two will be taken into account. 
	After take-off, aircraft should fly in the pattern shown in the layout, turning in the indicated direction at each marker.  
	After flying back as indicated, aircraft should land safely in the landing zone.
	If the teams are at tie then the timing in which they completed the task will be considered for tie breaker. 
	Teams completing the above task will be qualified for final round.  
	Points will be given for take-off, maneuvering as indicated and landing safely.  
	Aircraft passing hurdle under the 7 m height points will be awarded. 
			

Final Round

			ARENA
1.	The aircraft is to be flight tested in an open field.  
2.	The runway is of a total length of 10m and width of 2m.  
3.	The Hurdle 1 is of height 7m and Hurdle 2 is of height 7m and has marking at 4 m.

2. WaterRocketCollege

Introduction

The competition provides a platform to compete different launchers using their water rockets through a series of rounds doing different manoeuvres like Bull’s Eye & Goal Post and showing their talent in launching.

Event Structure

Round 1: Bull's Eye

•	There will be an arena having concentric circles with points mentioned in each circle.
•	Each team has to perform their launch into projectile path about any angle according to their convenience at a 50 m distance the arena centre
	from the launch spot.
•	The rocket has to be dropped into the circle to achieve points that is mentioned in the circle. The FIRST FALL position will be considered and
	further collisions to the ground is neglected.
•	Innermost circular region (5m in diameter) will have 50 points.
•	Concentric circular region (10m in diameter) will have 30 points.
•	Outermost circular region (20m in diameter) will have 20 points.
•	In the case rocket falls out of the arena no points will be awarded.
•	Each team will be having three chances of launch.
•	The maximum aggregate in these three rounds will call the winner of this round.


			

Round 2: Goal Post

•	There will be an arena having a Goal post. 
•	Each team has to fire the rocket into the Goal Post.
•	Three chances will be provided to each team.
•	There must be an exact (or near to) projectile path to the goal and the rocket must fall by its tip; otherwise the launch will be neglected without
	points.
•	Team which will projects its rocket near to the centre of the Goal will be awarded extra points.
•	Team with maximum aggregate of points will win up the round.

			

Model Guidelines

•	Only one model from each team will be allowed to both the rounds.
•	Plastic soft drink bottles of 2.25 litres should be used for the rocket body. Fins are necessary. Other parts should be of plastics for lower
	weight.
•	The launch base structure should be leak proof from all the joints. Bursting of pipes will lead to disqualifications.  
•	The water rocket must use only compressed ambient air as its source of pressure. Maximum pressure allowed is up to 50 psi. Only tap water shall be
	used in the rocket.
•	No chemical, soda or aerated water will be allowed for pressure increase. The amount of water to be filled in the rocket body is left to the choice
	of the team. 
•	Provision for deployment of a small payload with a parachute will fetch bonus points. No component or a body part of the rocket should get detached
	from the main frame during the flight of the rocket except for the case of payload. If any other part gets detached then the rocket will be
	disqualified.

			

Rules:

•	Eligibility: 
Any student of any academic institution is eligible to participate.
•	Team Structure: 
A team can consist of maximum 4 members. Students from different colleges can also form a team. 
•	Materials and services provided: 
Pressure pump & water will be provided. 
•	No team is allowed to bring their own separate water sources.
But, you are strongly suggested to bring all the materials you require to repair your model. We cannot assure you of the repairing materials.. 
•	NO TEAM IS ALLOWED TO EXCHANGE THEIR MODEL AND LAUNCH BASE FROM OTHER TEAMS.
