While we’ve feature drone videos on the Drone Universities blog for some time, we recently made the decision to start feature drone oriented instructables from time to time. The first one that we’ve decided to highlight is Jeff Mazter’s Solar Plane instructable. Enjoy!
Google is betting big on solar powered, fixed wing aircraft (not always successfully, though), so why shouldn’t you own one too? Thanks to Jeff Matzer, Instructables and long list of contributors, now you can. While not exactly a step by step build process, Jeff has compiled all of the resources together that he used to build his “solar plane.”
This instructable will show you how to create a solar powered plane. This project was done at Newman Smith High School (Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District
