BMFA Challenge 2015
This was an exciting and challenging project to design and build a model aircraft to carry a block of wood 300mm x 150mmx150mm around a course as far as possible in 5 minutes. Our team used this to gain CREST Gold awards. Our plane did not win in its category but because of the team spirit in struggling to get the project to completion against the odds and rebuilding our plane twice after serious crashes during the competition, we were awarded the Jetex Trophy!!
