MiG-3 Release

 

It’s finally here! We collaborated with Nerd Nic to develop the beautiful, historic warbird—the FT MiG-3! We are thankful for community members like Nic, who help us develop these types of projects, which enrich the RC world! Visit the Flite Test store to get on the list to purchase!

  

STEM School Update

 

We are thrilled to announce the first round of the Take Flight Fund winners! Because of the Flite Test community, we were able to raise $2,500 to award to three STEM schools. Both Pierz Public Schools and Proctor High School received $1,000 each and East Canton High School received $500. Congratulations to all of you! We had a great turnout of applications, which made the review process difficult. However, we are encouraged to see how STEM is positively impacting students all over the world! The next Take Flight Fund applications are being accepted now and ends June 1. Apply for the Flite Test STEM Take Flight Fund here.

 

Community Showcase

 

Planiac01 developed a huge Galaxy V2 glider, which impressed us quite a bit! He brought the Galaxy V1 to Flite Fest 2016 to attempt a world record. What impressed us the most is that he had such a great support system of family and friends, which truly emulates what Flite Test is all about. We can’t wait to see V2 at Flite Fest East 2017!
