This week on the Flite Test Podcast, James sits down with Nic Lechner to discuss Nic's design process for his airplanes. 

Nic 'Nerdnic' Lechner found popularity on flitetest.com back in 2015 with his sleek and streamlined RC airplane designs that could even hit the 120mph mark - did I mention these were made from foam board? Nic is all about pushing the limits of foam. Here's the podcast I recorded with Nic just before Christmas. I think you're going to enjoy it.
