R/C is: Challenging
The sport of radio controlled flying can be challenging, but in a good way. It will help you learn about aerodynamics, engineering concepts and the basic principles of flight. Radio controlled aircraft will add practical hands on experience for students interested in STEM as an aid to a career in aviation.
