Up, Up, and Away!

Our resident RC guru and Waterjet Master Miles Chan took a break from summer classes to fly his latest build - his 5th so far. Miles applies what he learns from established designs - like the one he tested today - to create and tweak his own designs. Why does he build so many airplanes? "Honestly, I enjoy the airplanes because they put into practice the stuff I've worked on in from a theoretical perspective." Next time you see him on the Burger Bowl with one of his creations, stop and say hi!
