Students and faculty at Penn State University Aerospace Engineering designed Blue Sparrow to be scalable, robust, safe, and fun to fly. Team captain Jack Langelaan told the Penn State Newsletter, “we chose this configuration because it provides good controllability and reduces the power required to fly within the size constraints imposed by the competition”. On June 14, 2018, it was selected as a Phase 1 winner of the GoFly competition.
