Flite Fest 2023 -- Free Flying Lessons

SlingShot

Maneuvering With Purpose
#1
It looks like I'll have some availability to attend FF 2023. What I won't likely have is much in the way of airplanes. I suppose I should be able to prefab my usual Goblin.

What I propose to do is bring my buddy box and cable, build a Simple Soarer at the event, and offer lessons on it to all comers.

What I would need:

In the way of sponsorship I could really use the *USE ONLY* of some batteries. 1000 or 1500 3S is ideal. Any batts would be returned to the owner at the conclusion of the event. Additionally, if anyone wants to bring me a 4 ch plane to fly, especially a biplane, that would be greatly appreciated.

So......time blocked out and tickets bought. I have decided however to forgo the Simple Soarer in favor of the Tiny Trainer. This will give me the flexibility to offer 4 ch lessons as well as have a fun plane that I can show off with :cool:

Therefore, in order to be able to help as many people as possible, I could use some help please in the form of some of 800-850 mAh, 3S batteries. If anyone can pledge the *USE ONLY* of some batteries it would be greatly appreciated @fliteadmin @flitetest

P.S. I'll be coming directly (more or less ) from the Weston Park RC Airshow in the U.K.

I didn't know we essentially had our own FliteTest in the UK! Seems awesome... I think, the website doesn't really say much. What goes on there? Can patrons fly their planes?
Weston is a lot fancier and exclusive than Flite Fest. Weston seems devoted to the coolest and most sophisticated planes & pilots in Europe and the UK. Dig down a little and I think you'll find some details. It seems as though there's a hierarchy for pilot registration.
