TEAM ARCIS takes aeromodelling to new heights!

TEAM ARCIS represents the Aero Design club of Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering, Bangalore. TEAM ARCIS was established in 2012. It is the brainchild of three UAV fanatics. We began small but we continue to grow and improve every year.

 TEAM ARCIS is the official team of the college for the SAE AERODESIGN Collegiate series. The team's passion for aeromodelling can be seen in their work, from designing and fabrication of the aircraft to the final flying phase. 

Our team regularly competes on an international stage, competing against teams from all over the world, from Germany to China, the USA to Japan.

SOLIDWORKS,  a subsidiary of Dassault Systemes.They are official sponsor TEAM ARCIS.  We use SOLIDWORKS  for DESIGN, ASSEMBLY and SIMULATION by the team.
ANSYS is an official Team sponsor of TEAM ARCIS. ANSYS is used for STRESS ANALYSIS, CFD and CFX.

The team’s expenditure for design and fabrication of an RC Aircraft sums up to 10 lakh rupees, which is raised through several different means.
  • Crowd-funding.
  • Conducting workshops in schools and colleges.
  • Partly funded by our college.
  • Funded by companies to use their products.(like SOLIDWORKS and ANSYS.)     


1) Design: The campaign plays a significant role in the design phase as per the design requirements stated by SAE.

2) Fabrication/Technical aspects: The funding will aid in the fabrication of the prototypic model of the aircraft which outperforms this year’s mission requirements. Also, it will help us to purchase a considerable quantity of electronics needed for the same.

3) Flight Tests: We seek to perform several preliminary flight tests in order to examine several aerodynamic parameters for the Aircraft to bring about the necessary updates and modifications.

4) Shipment: Shipping the entire model overseas all the way to the USA with utmost care will incur a significant amount of cost as this shipment goes through multi-level customs and verifications.

5) Social Contribution: A finite amount of the revenue generated will be put into use by organizing and conducting workshops and seminars at zero fee for underprivileged students.

The contribution through Milaap will not only help infuse a stronger understanding of Aerospace among students but will also play a major role in achieving our DREAM.


1) Announcements of the invaluable contributors & their contributions on our Facebook page, Twitter handle and Instagram page.

2) Routine updates/posts promoting the supporting/sponsoring companies/organizations/individuals across all our social handles, which include Medium, Behance and Wordpress.

Every contribution we receive, will be utilized by the team, and your valuable support will bring us much more closer to our DREAM.
