To the FliteTest Community:

This season we are going to do our TOP ACE honors a little differently, instead of just displaying the students name on the wall at the end of the year, we are going to give the students the option to bid for the wall of fame throughout the year.  Below is our requirements...

  1. Students have to Design and Create a successful aircraft, either a fixed wing or a multirotor.
  2. They then have to fly the aircraft completly on their own, fixed wing to make 3 complete circles, for multirotors an obstacle course.
  3. Finally, they have to land the aircraft safetly with no damage.
  4. Then the party begins!

Ashton is our first TOP ACE of the year, if you have been following, Ashton is the creator of the MF-15 Eagle. Designing planes is not Ashton's prior issues, it was the flying piece.  Now that he created a plane that he can handle, he was able to practice with Mr. T a couple times throughout the past weeks.  The last words of encouragement was from Josh Bixler when he visited, he said he can do it with ease!

Watch the episode and see how the bid all took place...
