The study of the flight mechanics provide the fundamentals of aerospace engineering relating to any conventional flight vehicles. To fly and control the aircraft, we need to know the flight mechanics of the system. The understanding of the fundamental forces in flight is critical as it affects the flight performances of the flying plane. As such, it is wise for us to maintain the airplane to prevent catastrophic air system failures from occurring. Apparently, we can design and build a remotely controlled glider. A set of components that might be easily available can be useful for the glider design.
