Lesson 3

Lesson 3: testing time

 

 

After building the fleet of planes, it is time to test them out. One plane per challenge – make notes about how each gets on in the challenge. Record the results and think about how they might be improved. Edit and improve the planes where necessary and have another go. Send in your results (videos and pictures would be great).

 

You could  make some basic wing adjustments: curling the wing tips up will cause the plane to turn upward; curling the wing tips down will cause the plane to turn downward. If a plane continually takes a nose dive into the ground, curling the wing tips up slightly can correct this problem.

 

You could also experiment with other adjustments too, including how hard to throw the plane: some planes fly better with a less aggressive launch.
