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!!

Gladiator Kits and Flite Fest

We are currently working on more Gladiator kits!  We will put together two optional electronics packages.  The first will be everything you need except battery and receiver.  The second will include a battery and receiver compatible with Spektrum brand transmitters.

These kits should be ready by 2 June 2023.

If you would like your kits delivered to you at Flite Fest, please let us know.  You can save on the shipping costs.  I am hoping I’ll be at Flite Fest for at least one day.  If I am unable to make it, I will send them with someone who can hand deliver them for us.

Website was down 3 March 2023

Hello Everyone,
We experienced a serious issue this morning with our website.  It was down for about 8 hours due to a plugin that updated and crashed the website hard.  We restored to a previous backup.  As far as I can tell we did not lose any data.  If you experience any issues with the website, please let us know as soon as possible so we can fix the issue.  You can find our contact form by clicking HERE.
Thank you for your understanding.
