Design/Build/ FlyFamily friendly - adult with child image.

Want to see a plane that flies just as well sideways as it does upright? Or skids over rough terrain on ice-skate landing gear? Or carries 16 rockets? The MIT Design/Build/Fly (DBF) Team creates radio-controlled aircraft like these every year for the international DBF competition. Team members will be on hand with some of our unique planes to discuss and answer questions about our design and testing process, building techniques for the unique and creative aircraft from recent years, and the DBF competition.
