Lake Wales, FL, October 19, 2017 —- Popular radio-control (R/C) YouTube channel Flite Test will hold its 7th Flite Fest event Novemner 3rd–5th at Lake Wales Airport in Lake Wales, Florida. Anticipated to be one of the largest R/C events ever held in Florida, featuring countless radio-controlled (RC) planes and multirotors. Hundreds of spectators, RC pilots, volunteers and vendors are anticipated to join the North Canton-based YouTube sensation, Flite Test, for four days of family fun, flight and fellowship.

“We are excited to hold our first ever Flite Fest South,” said Josh Bixler, Flite Test president and host. “We hope that this event will continue our passion to educate, entertain and elevate the world of flight through a family-friendly event.”

Pilots and spectators from dozens of states are expected to participate in-air RC combat exhibitions, FPV (First Person View) races and several community flying events over the three-day event. In the spirit of Flite Test’s mission of entertaining, educating and elevating the world of flight, attendees share their passion, knowledge and experiences during what has been called a family reunion for the RC aircraft community.

The event will also have a build tent with ample tools and supplies for attendees to build aircraft as well as repair planes damaged during the various combat events.

Evenings at Flite Fest evoke the family-friendly atmosphere found throughout the event, with communal Night Flies, nightly bonfires and a pilot skills workshop.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
