Pragyan 2011 - RC Aircraft Design

RC Aircraft Design

“The knack to flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss”

                                                                                                                                   – Douglas Adams


At the dawn of the twentieth century, having explored and conquered all land, man turned his eyes skywards. For much of history he has been trying to conquer this seemingly unbeatable foe. The skies continued to elude him until finally, the Wright brothers finally conquered the skies one windy morning in the winter of 1903. Since then the aircraft industry has exploded, and aeroplanes have captured the imagination of the human race.

Workshops at Pragyan '11 gives participants an opportunity to to conquer the sky on their own terms, as this workshop conducted by AerotriX allows them to design, fabricate and see their aircraft fly.
