Josh, Alex and Christian recently went down to Florida to film new Flite Test content that you may have already gotten to see over the past week. While there they went to Fantasy of Flight, the Sebring Aviation Expo and met the team at Aviator PPG.
We were given a beautiful gift from Stephen Channon for thanking WWI veterans for their service in our first video podcast. Learn more about how they honor WWI veterans and how they support men and women currently serving their country here.
Rafael R. came up with a scratch build 20CC Just Aircraft Highlander after seeing a YouTube video of one and finding a smaller scale by Scott Swanson. He upscaled the plans by 164.7 percent, which made the wingspan 7.4 feet. He created a Styrofoam wing with carbon fiber tube spars, covered with 1mm balsa. To finish off the creation, he put a black mono coat over the entire wings and fuselage.
Steve (cdrskull on forums) created a 3D printed Mavic that he expects to get flying soon! He has also printed an Inspire 1 before. Nice job, Steve!
Thank you to everyone who has been reaching out to us with some pretty stellar full scale content! If you have any you’d like to share with us, you can submit it on our general aviation page.
