How to build your own solar-powered plane

How to build your own solar-powered plane

The Instructables Green Design Contest keeps churning up amazing projects, including this one by jeffmazter406 that takes you step-by-step through building your own solar-powered plane, like a smaller unmanned version of the Solar Impulse plane. The instructable includes not only step-by-step instructions and photos, but also links you to two Power Point presentations by Texas A&M University to help walk you through.

This particular project was done by Newman Smith High School students and faculty in Carrollton, Texas and was sponsored by the Texas A&M University Society of Flight Test Engineers, and the team notes that "The project is not for the beginner as it gets a bit complicated." But don't let that scare you off. If you really want to try this, dig down deep to your inner Maker and you'll be able to do this!
