The Remote-Controlled Airplane

Purpose of the Airplane: to be able to fly in the air and land safely with the assistance of the remote control. The airplane is supposed to be made out of insulating foam and have a motor to control the functionality and direction of the plane. 

 How: We cut out the foam into various pieces, such as the elevator, rudder, wings, and many more.

Some of the temporary pieces we cut out.
