The challenge

Figure out how to increase flight time without jeopardising the helicopter’s stability and flying capacity. There are many factors that affect flight time.

To properly uncover how factors jointly affect the response, use design of experiments - a practical and ubiquitous approach for exploring multi-factor opportunity spaces. Are you up to the challenge?

Make eight paper helicopters as per the instructions and note your experimental choices and decisions.

Good luck!

The competition to win a drone has now closed, but you can still have fun devising experiements to build the best possible paper helicopter!
