The 2013 Lawrence Tech SAE Aero Design® team will compete in the regular class against teams from around the world. Their challenge is to design, build, test, and fly a heavy-lift radio-controlled aircraft. Given a set of constraints, the goal is to airlift the most weight possible. A competitive 10-pound plane will lift 30 pounds of payload.
Constraints specified in the 2013 competition rule book include a maximum linear dimension (length plus width plus height) of 225 inches, an unmodified OS 0.61 FX engine, and the restriction that no fiber-reinforced plastics can be used as construction materials. The planes also have to take off within 200 feet and land within 400 feet.
