Special guests Austin and Josh S. join Stefan as they chat about Flite Fest West, hoola hoop racing, recent Flite Test episodes and RC news.
Flite Fest West (#FFW17 – official social media hashtag!)
In case you haven’t heard, our first-ever, west event will take place April 27-30, at the Solano County Fairgrounds in Vallejo, Cali. The venue is merely a hop, skip and a jump away from Sacramento and San Francisco. P.s. Registration is open NOW! Register here.
We get some pretty neat ideas posted in articles on our website. One of our more recent favorites was the hoola hoop racing gates designed by Mebillica. It is a great way to create a course to race your favorite quads whether it’s indoors or outdoors. The best part is that you can create these gates with common materials such as the hoola hoop, battery plugs, Velcro straps, electrical tape and more! See how he created them here.

Some of our new episodes include: A Beginner’s Guide to Drones, Truck Drone vlog and an UMX A-10 review. We are excited about some of the new products that have come out recently like the Forge 3D Printer and the Micro Vector, and the products that are coming out soon: Furious FPV Moskito.
