17. Wildcard week

Assignment

Design and produce something with a digital fabrication process (incorporating computer-aided design and manufacturing) not covered in another assignment, documenting the requirements that your assignment meets, and including everything necessary to reproduce it.

I decided to make a foam and carbon fiber composite model aircraft part for Wildcard week.

Due Wednesday May 27 2020


I designed this HTC aircraft in SolidWorks several years ago. It is a remix of the STC Aircraft designed by Waterdog (Charles Pirkey). The HTC can be built using the STC Build Guide on the RC Groups forum. HTC stands for Hole Tabria Cadet, a spin on the Citabria airplane which the STC and HTC plane were modeled after. Both the full size Citabria and the HTC are capable of very slow flight and aerobatics which counters it’s appearance of a docile high wing trainer aircraft.
