  1. Very nice experiment. Would you try other wing shapes? What can you now do with the knowledge you have gained from this research project?

  2. Did you learn more about 3-D printing or learning about the aerodynamics of different shaped wings? Excellent project that show you spent many hours completing this introduction to plane design. Keep up the good work and continue this type of engineering when you get to high school.
