Engineering Team

August 2019

  • Sent the final 6-pack design to a commercial production facility

  • Newly revised wiring diagram was made for the strain gauges

  • Finished the pitot tube with the rotatory encoders

February 2019

  • The Structures Team determined the location for the Beagle Bone Black mounts and will install them permanently.

  • The Aerodynamics Team continued to work on fabrication of the additional instrumentation for the pitot tube.

December 2018

  • The Structures Team temporarily installed the Beagle Bone Black mounts.

  • The Aerodynamics Team completed installation of the pressure taps onto the wing skin of the aircraft.

November 2018

  • The Structures Team completed fabrication of the Beagle Bone Black mounts.

  • The Aerodynamics Team added instrumentation to the pitot tubes.

  • Eagle Aero Sport moved into a new hangar!

October 2018

  • The Structures Team modeled the design of the Beagle Bone Black mounts.

  • The Aerodynamics Team installed the strain gauges into the wing spar.

April 2018

  • The Structures Team tested the cable management solution for inside the wing.

  • The Aerodynamics Team tested the fit of the sensors that will be placed in the pitot tube system.

March 2018

  • The Structures Team has continued production on the new Beagle Bone mounts.

  • The Aerodynamics Team continued to work on pressure tap drilling and redesigned the pitot tube in order for the sensors to fit better.

February 2018

  • The Structures Team began production of the new Beagle Bone mounts and are working with the electrical team to mount the wires needed to transmit data to the aircraft's central server.

  • The Aerodynamics Team started to drill holes for the pressure taps and are teaching new members this process.

January 2018

  • The Structures Team will begin fabrication on the new Beagle Bone mounts.

  • The Aerodynamics Team started to drill holes for the pressure taps.

December 2017

  • The Structures Team found flaws in the Beagle Bone mounts and began to redesign them to reduce weight in the aircraft.

  • The Electrical team developed a full wiring diagram in EagleCAD to demonstrate how each component of the aircraft will be connected in the system.

November 2017

  • The Electrical Team finished the first version of the pressure transducer mounting boards.

October 2017

  • We were able to showcase our work using a Static Display during OctoberWest.

  • The Structures Team finished the Beagle Bone mounts and attached them to the aircraft.

  • The Electrical team finalized the wiring diagram for the aircraft wings.

August 2017​​

  • The Beagle Bone Black mounts were stress tested in the university’s structures lab and proved to be strong enough to support the needed equipment throughout the aircraft’s full range of motion.

February 2017

  • The President of Embry-Riddle, Dr. P Barry Butler and his wife, Dr. Audrey Butler visited the workshop to observe the hard work EAS has put into the RV-12.

  • The Beagle Bone cape was ready for fabrication.

January 2017

  • The Structures Team started to design the pitot tube and Beagle Bone Black Mounts.

  • The Aerodynamics Team finalized a plan to install the pressure taps onto the wing.

  • The Electrical Team started to develop the software of the Beagle Bone Black and test spar.

December 2016

  • The Aero and Structures Team concluded that Hysol Epoxy would be a good fit for the pressure taps.

  • The Structures Team finalized the battery, switch and inverter mount.
