    Hey everyone

    Thought I'd make an account after stopping by this forum often for questions and some good insight. I'm a high school student, currently taking AP C physics, and I like building things that move. Aspiring engineer in the making here.

    I'm also a student pilot, about six months away from taking the test for it, too. I love understanding the science involved in flight, and asking questions is always fun.

    My joy in flying and engineering has led me to some pretty cool places, from the Wittcraft aerospace factory to building my own baby VTOL. The plane is only 10 or so feet from wingtip to wingtip, and I designed it to use 9.9 horsepower (electric). Her name's Athena, because she is the goddess of knowledge, which is something I hoped to gain throughout the project.
    Heres a picture from awhile ago, built in Autodesk Inventor 2015:

    The physics involved is a lot of fun for me. I'm on an endeavor right now to correlate electrical current and thrust, and I think I got a good idea for it.
    I also use Wolfram Alfa's Mathematica for all my math stuff.

    Thanks for stopping by and looking at this.. - the falling cat Image20.png
