SAE Argonauts

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Micro-Class competition is normally held as a practical testing of engineering skills offered to engineering programs. This allows teams working within the competition to
learn more about practical applications of engineering in the industry. The overall goal is to create a remote-controlled aircraft using new and preexisting skills within the team, often requiring research outside of course content to broaden the members' learning perspectives.
Much of the team is new to aircraft design and practical engineering in general and this project is allowlng our team to collaborate on a specific set of competition goals. The 2020-2021 team has decided not to attend the in-person competition due to possible uncertainties of future cancellation similar to the previous year's competition This is the fourth year the UWF SAE team will be attempting the goal of making a competition ready RC plane but the first using Micro Class competition rules
