Josh Bixler and the rest of the FliteTest crew have taught me a lot when it comes to flying, building, and just enjoying the hobby. I always look forward to your next video and to see what's coming next. The two Joshs onscreen keep a smile on my face from start to finish. I love the scratch builds as well as the speed builds- in fact, my 12 year old daughter helped me build the Spitfire (she was watching the build video and yelling at me when I did something out of sequence). I'd love to get both of my kids into the hobby.

You are awesome. I have a suggestion for a new swappable plane. I think you should make a dc 10, or any type of passenger plane.

But anyways, you were the person who got me into the hobby, and I am grateful to you.

Hey Josh, you are great. I have been a long time FT viewer and have been struggling with building too big quads to learn on. I just watched your's and David's "Let's know them" videos and it inspired me to reach out to you.

What do you recommend as a great way for me to get my 7 year old daughter into the hobby? She is awesome, sweet and sharp and I would love to expose her to the excitement you and your crew experience as you explore and develop flying platforms. I have been playing with quadcopter systems myself and have done some homemade kits, with varying success, but I am looking for a simpler (smaller and cheaper) approach for both of us. Something to quickly get up and feel the excitement and fun of RC flying without the pain of wrecking and having to fix a several hundred dollar platform. The FT flyer looks like it might be the ticket. I have never played with fixed wing aircraft, but it looks like a nice way to go, especially with FPV. What do you recommend? Fixed wings? Quads and their ilk?

Thanks a lot, I'm not sure if this is the right platform to reach you and the FT crew, but I thought I would try.

Thanks a lot,
-fred quintana
