Design of a Jet-Powered Remote Control Aircraft for use at an Intercollegiate Competition
Members of the Aero Design Team designed and built a jet-powered aircraft to compete at the Speedfest remote control aircraft competition, hosted by Oklahoma State University. For this competition, each team must demonstrate their ability to quickly design, develop and test, a high-speed portable aircraft capable of conducting special reconnaissance prior to team insertion (SRI) mission. The primary mission objective of the aircraft is the ability to be point-launched, dash to the insertion area, and quietly perform live recon. Each team is judged based on its ability to fly faster, quieter, and longer than other teams while providing live video footage to the ground, studying a point of interest.
