Flitefest East – Action Report

UVify at FliteFest East!

UVify attended FliteFest East (FFE) in Malvern, Ohio from July 13th-16th, and what an event it was!

Flitetest put on one of the premier model RC events, with thousands of avid pilots, builders, and racers flock together over a common interest: the joy of robotics. The community is quite diverse, from home-built tractors to cardboard planes to customized racing drones. An open flight line allows for everybody to show off their creations and fly various planes and multi-rotors, including an FPV racing course.

UVify was very excited to show off the production model of Draco at this event, and the positive feedback was overwhelming. Both from handling Draco at the booth and learning the basics on VelociDrone, to watching and riding along as the Draco roared around the race track, Draco impressed everyone.

Draco was swinging blow for blow with fully customized racing drones, qualifying into the top 16 of racers (out of a total of approximately 100 over the 4 days). Not only that, but many tried their hands at flying Draco themselves, including the infamous Joe Scully, renowned race director for FPV Events.

We would like to thank everyone for attending FliteFest and coming to check out the Draco at the UVify booth. If you missed us, we’ll be at many more events in the near future, so keep your eyes and ears open!
