This project can be used with the Lego WeDo robot kit model Airplane Rescue:
You can see a video of the robot in action here:
The plane will do nothing until it is tilted upwards, when its engine will start and gradually build up to full power. Once it has reached full power, it will then change speed depending on how the plane is tilted – most power is needed for flying up, least for down, and a medium amount for flying on the level.
But less than a minute into the flight, disaster strikes! There’s an ominous snap, the engine stutters, rattles, then roars into full speed. Time for a quick crash landing. After ten more seconds, level out the plane, and it will land with a bump, and the engine will gradually slow down and stop.
