At Flite Test we love to create content that’s newer and better for our wonderful community. With that in mind, we decided we wanted to take our podcasts to the next level, so we’ve added VIDEO! Join us every Thursday for new podcasts as host, Stefan, talks about what’s going on at Flite Test, RC news, general aviation and more!
This week Stefan the Joshes chat about Flite Fest West, automated test stands for brushless motors, the Vortex 150, full-scale planes and the brand new FT Pietenpol.
Flite Fest West (#FFW17)
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.
Automated Test Stand for Brushless Motors
Our friend Dave from Australia (AKA jollyswagman) wrote an incredible article about this stand. It fully-automated so all you must do is push a button and the controller does the rest! What sets it apart, you may ask? It will run up a motor in steps while taking thrust and current draw readings then uploads the data directly to Google Sheets. Read the full article here.
We are loving this new quad here at Flite Test and have had tons of fun over the past week flying it and crashing it into trees. Look for its maiden voyage on YouTube in an upcoming vlog and you can purchase it here.
Sponsorship for Full Scale Planes
Do you have a love for full scale planes and desire to see more of covered by Flite Test? You can sponsor them! Go to our general aviation page to learn more.
We are excited to announce that we will be releasing the brand new FT Pietenpol in our store on February 6! Josh B. worked hard to create this mini version of his full-scale Piet. We hope you’re as excited as we are about flying this beauty!
