The goal of this project was to design a remote controlled aircraft. The plane had to be light as possible, carry a payload fraction and fit in the box with a 24”x 18”x 8” interior dimension. The design has a 50.2 inch wingspan and is capable of carrying a payload of 3KG after being hand launched. Innovations such as modular assembly jigs in the fabrications process allow the aircraft to be constructed in less than eight hours. This report details about the design process and final configuration of the aircraft. By completing aerodynamics, structures, stability, propulsion and selection analysis, then we able to create a lightweight aircraft with a high payload fraction.
