Aerospace America reported that a team from Clarkson University won the 2018 Design/Build/Fly competition in Wichita, Kansas, on Sunday, “besting fellow students from around the United States and world.” The team’s aircraft was one of the lightest radio-controlled planes in the competition, and was made in part from the “takeout container box from a Chinese restaurant.” This year’s challenge was to design a “regional and business aircraft” that would carry one plastic ball “passenger” on one ground mission and three flight missions.
