This week, we modified the trihedral figure including structure based on the advice we received last week.
It was pointed out that the main wing lacked strength, so we inserted a spar to the trailing edge and added diagonal components between the ribs in order to increase the strength.
For the legs of the plane, we considered one front wheel and two rear wheels, but we changed it to two front wheels and one rear wheel in order to withstand the load when landing.
We also identified that the plane can get necessary thrust with the parts we selected and that the center of gravity is located as we supposed.
By next week, we will think out the structure of the main wing to withstand rolling moment and how to produce the main wing at the angle we designed. From next week, we are going to start producing.
