Competing against 33 schools from five countries, the team also took first place in oral presentation and a second place in the design report competition. The 2014 team was led by Technical Captain Russell Trahan along with Business Captain and Stability & Control Lead Brookelynn Russey, Aerodynamics Lead Chris Lizaso, Structures Lead Armando Padilla, and Metrology & Operations Lead Chris Bertagne.
The SAE Aero Design competition is intended to provide undergraduate and graduate engineering students with a real-life engineering challenge: design, build, and fly an original R/C aircraft capable of lifting as much weight as possible within the competition’s design constraints.
