The objective for this lab is to build a flying aircraft that can land inside a target area on the ground.

The requirements for this lab are simple:

Your aircraft MUST

1. Make (and survive) 5 successful flights. A flight is NOT falling.

2. Be constructed by you and your group.

3. Have an identifiable airfoil.

4. Have a minimum wingspan of 4ft

5. Be accompanied by a COMPLETE lab writeup.

BE READY TO FLY ON FRIDAY, JUNE 13TH

NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!
