Meet the 2016 US F1D team – Brett Sanborn

brett_bio_pic2Brett started flying in the Science Olympiad Wright Stuff event while in high school. Since then he’s focused his efforts on building and refining his F1Ds. He was a member of the 2004 US junior team and quickly progressed in the hobby from there. He was an early pioneer of the “sparless” prop with carbon fiber blades. With the higher weight limit for F1D of 1.4 g that was imposed in 2015, Brett now uses similar methods for the construction of wing tips. Since becoming an open flier in 2005, this is Brett’s 5th time representing the U.S. at the world championships. He has shown steady improvement over the years, placing 7th, 5th, 3rd and 2nd at successive world championships.
