This week’s accomplishments 1. Aircraft Detailed Design Details of the aircraft design were discussed and decisions were made based on simplicity and feasibility for the CG shifting mechanism. The method of elevator control and the pivoting mount were also nearly finalized: Figure 1: Visualization of CG Shifting Mechanism - The CG shifting mechanism will be designed around a simple zipper. A zipper will provide a system that is reliable and easily replaced or repaired. The zipper will have enough friction to resist movement while studying the aircraft at the set CG position. Additionally, the zipper will allow access to the CG mechanism from above, which is the ideal access position for the high contraction wind tunnel based on the door location.
