The objective of this project was to design a relatively cheap and 3D-printable quad-copter capable of carrying a Sony QX1 to take pictures of what's underneath it and be moderately waterproof should the copter fall in the water while in the air. While capable of flight, the 3D prints were not immediately waterproof and had to be coated in spray epoxy first. Designed by Miguel Antonio De Villa, who is majoring in aerospace engineering (Class of 2016) in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department in UC San Diego's Jacobs School of Engineering.
