Motivation You are being charged with the task of developing a system that will participate in an aerial competition in late April 2004. At the competition you will have at your disposal a team of four (4) or five (5) personnel, a radio controlled model aircraft, and associated equipment. You will be given a baseline aircraft at the beginning of the semester. During the semester you have the opportunity to modify the aircraft and design and optimize a system that will win the competition. You will be assigned to a team of four (4) or five (5) individuals, and four (4) hours per week per team member has been allotted to activities related to this project. Various materials and resources will be made available to you to help you organize and manage your project, and to help you develop, analyze, and optimize your winning system. At competition day your system must do the following: Take off carrying no payload and fly two (2) laps of a closed indoor circuit for speed. Land and load one (1) to four (4) eggs, which we will give you, as a payload. Then takeoff with the egg payload and fly for endurance (maximum
