  • Describe at least 2 ideas you "borrowed" from other groups. How did these ideas help/improve your plane?
    • add
    • add
  • Describe at least 1 idea you tried that FAILed. Why was it a FAILure? How did you overcome that FAILure?
    • add
  • Hypothesize: What specific design elements might make a difference when testing for accuracy, distance and time aloft? Why?
    • Accuracy - add
    • Distance - add
    • Time Aloft - add
