Flite Fest East 2017

by FliteTest | June 16, 2017 | (0) Posted in News

Join more than 900 pre-registered pilots at Flite Fest East 2017 for our fifth-annual, flagship RC aircraft event July 13-16! 

Flite Fest began back in 2014 as the brain-child of Austin Furey, who had the desire to have a festival dedicated to those passionate about the RC hobby and their families.

Each year numbers increased as Flite Fest became more familiar with the RC community—last year’s event brought more than 4,200 attendees. And this year we held our first-ever Flite Fest West event in Vallejo, California, which brought out 2,700 attendees.

Flite Fest East 2017 has some exciting new updates and events!

New Layout | The new layout at Flite Fest East will help centralize the event. We’re calling it “Flite Fest Central.”


Product Releases | We are partnering with well-known manufacturers to release brand new products exclusively at Flite Fest East!


Combats | We know you’re familiar with the Flite Fest combats, but now we’re adding a little something extra into the mix—streamer fun flies once a day! Stay tuned for more information.



Demos | We’ll have several demonstrations at Flite Fest East including the Paradigm Acrobatic Team, which will be a paramotor airshow you don’t want to miss!


Camping | To ensure you have a camping spot available for you and your family, please register for your spot prior to arriving at the event. Get your camping passes here.

| We are still in need of volunteers, so if you’re interested in volunteering for Flite Fest East, please sign up here.



Projects | You know those really amazing projects you saw from Flite Fest West? Well, we’re on the lookout for some at Flite Fest East! If you have one you think we would love to see, please submit your information here.

We are so excited to see all of you in a few short weeks! We also love seeing the photos you take before and at the event—so please use the hashtag #FFE17 on your photos on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for a chance for your photos to be reposted by our team!

I'm so excited! This is my first Flite Fest and I can't wait to see everybody out there. It is looking awesome so far! Now I have to figure out how to cram as many planes as possible into the RV i'm renting. See you there!
