Students folded up their own paper airplane designs and clipped the USB-charged motor to the plane. Each charged motor will last about 20 minutes – enough time for each person in class to fly their planes twice. The distances of each flight were measured until all flights were concluded.
There is an associated smartphone app that gives you statistics about your flight. For example, the fuel level is equivalent to the amount of charge left on the battery. As you rotate the phone, the rudder will change direction. You control the throttle as well on the smartphone. The students thoroughly enjoyed their lesson on aerodynamics and airplane design.
