Remote Control Aircraft Design  (2010 – Present)
Entered the remote control aircraft community building PDF plan park-jet aircraft. Began developing custom foam aircraft designs using trial and error throughout high-school, bringing a strong aviation background into college. Shared designs through Youtube videos and other contracted video work. Currently using aerospace education to design RC aircraft to perform specific missions and experiments. Videos of this RC aviation background can be found here:

Intern Design Project – Tug Test Tester (2013)
With a partner, we designed, prototyped, built, soldered, programed, and demonstrated a working, custom force gauge unit for use with “Tug Testing” (pulling on wires in connectors, to a known measurement). This prevented the operators from pulling too hard and damaging the connectors.

Preliminary Aircraft Design  (August – December 2017)
Completed a full preliminary design analysis of an aircraft as part of a course assigned team project. Our group of four students calculated the constrains, cost, weights, geometry, mid-fuselage propulsion, drag, performance, stability, dynamics, and controls for a four seater general aviation aircraft based on the mission provided. A final presentation of the design was also given to the class and some attending industry engineers.
