Our assignment was to build a model airplane that could fly around a power pole. We started by building model airplanes out of paper and studying the principles of lift, center of gravity, and center of pressure. We then sketched a design for the plane and began building it out of balsa wood. After our first test we slightly modified the wings to provide more lift. We also added extra weight to the back to counteract the weight of the motor. After those modifications, our plane worked and was able to fly around the power pole with its own lift.
