BTW All our kits include quality accessories - Upgraded from the original FliteTest Speed Build Kits.

Vortex-RC brings FliteTest inspired Laser Cut Foamboard kits to India


For instance, we include Plastic/Foam Wheels . Original FliteTest plans include Foamboard wheels which we felt were too flimsy, and wore out very quickly. So we made it a point to give durable "real" wheels instead.

Likewise, we include nickel plated wheel collars for all landing gear equipped planes. The Original FliteTest way was to use Hot glue to retain the wheels. While that sort of works, it often came apart on the flying field, and looked ugly.
The Wheel collars are much more secure, they look good and are durable.

We hope our fellow hobbyists shall appreciate these upgrades offered on all our kits !

Gaurav sir, I know it must have taken tremendous efforts on your part to make all those amazing kits available. But, it would be really great if you could also stock the compatible electronics for all or most of the kits.
Even if you just stock motors and servos (as ESCs and LiPos seem to be readily available), lazy bums like me won't have to go through all the other sites looking for the appropriate stuff!

That's great Gaurav sir!
I was about to spend an insane amount on FPV gear, but those goggles give me headaches. I'd rather wait for a month and buy all those kits instead!

Hope there'll be more build videos from local flyers then.

Yeah looking out for the RC community to make the most of our efforts . Thats the idea. Trying to finalise the right set of electronics that are cost effective yet work great.
With so many choices at hand, this is in itself a task !

Stay tuned though !

Super amazing to fly. Quite small and can be extremely aerobatic. Does not need a big ground. Fly it low, fly it slow and close to the ground. Can do 3D as well !

We are having an amazing time with this brilliant airplane. Thanks Flite Test and hope everyone will enjoy this plane as much as we did !

Hi Gaurav sir ,

Sent from my Lenovo A7010a48 using Tapatalk


@Funze
Thanks for your interest. We will do the Mikey V3 Slow flyer within the next 2 months.

For now, we are focussing on improving upon and adding value to Our FliteTest lineup of Speed Build kits
We take feedback positively. Heres what has been improved and what we are working on :

-- For all our kits the Pushrods now include a Z-Bend on one side. Thanks Sukalyan Ghosh of Kolktata for pointing out that Z-bends sometimes becomes v difficult for first timers.

-- Packaging. In addition to our original packaging, we are further adding a level of bubble wrap and also double box packaging for some kits. This should really make the kits bullet proof !
Here is how we package.
All the foamboard sheets are shrinkwrapped together.
Then this package with the decals, datasheet and other accy go into a think poly bag which is sealed.
Then this goes into a bubble wrap
Which goes in a 5 ply cardboard box
which further goes into another 3 ply carboard box ( for some kits )

Hope this further improves the way people get the kits !

-- Modification to all designs.
Laser cut kits have an inherant problem. If we cut all the cut lines the parts fall out and become prone to getting lost in packaging and difficult pack and easily damaged. Earlier on some kits we used some small pieces of paper tape to hold the pieces down.
Now all designs are modified to have small retainer tabs that hold the pieces together, and yet one can easily pop them out .
always best to run the included knife through the cuts to make a clean seperation.

Also, designs modified to include extra material in the kits. ie instead of throwing the cut-away parts we keep them in the package . This keeps all sheets of the similar sizes and also protects the edges of the parts.

I shall illustrate this with a picture shortly...

Thanks all ! we keep on improving every day !!!

@gauravag,
Sir,
Great to see attention to fine points, that separate a world class product from ordinary ones.
Hope you can export to areas not serviced by FliteTest, or supply to FT itself. Or Hobbyking?
I wish you well in the new year.
Regards.

Thanks for the kind words.  One more thing.  Based on feedback,  we are doing a simple build manual for each kit.  This will have step by step illustrated build steps that one can follow to complete the build.

We have received feedback that people do not have reliable Internet access for watching videos. Also sometimes the foreign accent is difficult to catch by some. Lastly it's bothersome sometimes and prone to making mistakes to watching the build on YouTube while building.

A lot of effort will be put into doing these illustrated manuals which  will be made available in pdf form. 

All this to help see many more successful builds and people flying !!!
