Happy New Year

Thank you to all our past customers who made 2023 a great year for us.

2023 was a fantastic year for Wind Catcher RC.  We were able to help Ben Harber through sponsoring part of his build and cutting his giant 1/4 scale A-26.  If you haven’t seen it yet, check out Ben’s channel (CLICK HERE) and watch the build and flight videos.

We also sponsored Joshua Finn’s World Record sized rubber powered airplane.  Josh did an excellent job engineering and building this monster.  I flew out to Denver, CO, to help Josh and his crew fly this world record plane.  Josh documented the entire process in three part video on it (CLICK HERE to go to his YouTube channel).  

Wind Catcher RC was a Silver level sponsor for the AMA NATS.  I went down to Muncie for a day to check it all out and meet up with Josh Finn and his family.

We also made it to Flite Fest for 2 days.  That even is truly awesome.  If you haven’t been, 2024 is the year to go!  It will be the 10th anniversary event.  We are hopeful that we’ll go for at least part, if not all, of the event.  Hope to see you there.

Hoping everyone has a wonderful 2024.  Good luck with your projects, repairs, and everything you have going for you.  Let us know how we can help you out.

World Record Attempts and other information

We are nearly finished moving into our new workshop space.  We are unpacking and organizing our inventory onto new storage shelves so packing your orders will be faster than before.  We will also have more space to increase our inventory.  After I get back from Denver, I’ll process more EPP foam and replenish our stock and keep our inventory up so you don’t need to wait so long for our next batch.  I apologize for the inconvenience and delays in getting our EPP back up on the website.

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Fun Fly August 5th.  Overall it was a great success with quite a few people who showed up to fly in our community of RC aircraft.  Thank you to those who demonstrated with their special aircraft like the turbine powered Pilatus, sail plane, large helicopters, and others.  Congratulations to all of our raffle winners.  And hope you enjoyed the taco bar for dinner.

This year Wind Catcher RC sponsored several activities and aircraft.  Another sponsored build we did was Ben Harber’s A-26.  Wind Catcher RC cut out the entire plane for Ben.  He designed it and built it.  We also provided the batteries, carbon fiber, and some other parts.  Ben is hoping to maiden the plane very soon.  Good luck Ben!!

We have also been working closely in secrecy with Joshua Finn from J&H Aerospace for over 9 months on a project.  We are attempting multiple world record attempts through several organizations with an aircraft.  The aircraft is already built and test flown a few times for trimming.  It’s truly amazing!  More information on this after our event and we can report on real numbers and what this all means.  Until then, we’ll allow you to speculate based on the 3 (2) view found below.  Wish us luck in Denver!!
