    Don't be surprised if this turns out to be a real project some university students and a prof have come up with. After being involved for 10 years with the SAE Aerodesign and listening to what these people come up with nothing would surprise me. They do not consider the limitations or ramnifications of what they might suggest. I have seen designs that suggest the safest spot to observe an attempt at flight would be in your car or under something with a strong roof. It is not unusual to have a thousand plus at one of their events and they are lifting attempting to lift weights where they reach the max allowed 55 lbs and the design has never been test flown before the competition. There are autonomous flight competitions where a modified helicopter is used to take off and complete several tasks and return to base. The carnage is unbelivable you never know when the model is going to take on a life of its own. Its not within the scope of modeling when the requirments are outside the rules we are expected to operate our models under. There are plenty of resources out there that will offer assistance so its a good call to pass on this.
