The goal of this project was to design a Fixed-Wing Micro Aerial Vehicle in compliance with the rules of the Society of Automotive Engineers 2019 Aero Design Competition. These rules included carrying a payload of 2 inch inner diameter PVC pipe, fitting the unassembled aircraft within a box of dimensions 12.125" x 3.625"x 13.875", and assembling the aircraft in under 3 minutes. The project team conducted analysis and testing in the areas of aircraft structures, stability and controls, aerodynamics, and propulsion. The final aircraft was constructed with laser-cut plywood and balsa, monokote, carbon fiber, and 3D printed components, weighed 2 pounds unloaded and 3.85 pounds loaded, while still meeting all competition requirements.
