The Competitive Edge™

Skip Miller Models has always approached RC Soaring as a sport, and the models we represent are always at the top of the game. We have thrived on our ability to import, modify, and influence a variety of the very best models available from around the world. Skip Miller Models thoroughly tests (at high altitude, 1645m) the models we represent before releasing them to the public. No model leaves our shop without the Skip Miller Models seal of approval. Skip Miller Models is run by former soaring World Champion and highly decorated pilot, Skip Miller. When working with customers, Skip Miller Models’ staff can find the best model for their flying style, help them with flight set up, and give them The Competitive Edge.

His dad designed and built his first radio control equipment, and Skip became the official “chaser” of the rudder only Live Wire Trainer. He had his most significant modeling accomplishment in 1977, becoming the 1st World Champion of RC Soaring in Pretoria, South Africa, followed by winning the US Nationals Standard Class and Overall title the same year in California.
