On April 15, 2017 IEEE PES Helwan Student Chapter organized the first Solar Quadcopter Competition in Egypt, namely “Quaditch 1.0” at Helwan University. Twelve teams participated in the competition and team “Tiger” won the 1st place. Our journey started by online and offline publicity in different universities followed by technical sessions and workshops supported by our technical support committee and ended by the competition. Our main aim was to increase the usage of solar energy in a useful way. Solar Quadcopter will be useful for a range of applications, such as search, rescue and surveillance.
