In this podcast episode, we take a look back on 2013 and all of the exciting things it held for FliteTest. Growing from around 30,000 YouTube subscribers to just shy of 120,000 is just one of many milestones we consider. 2013 was also a big year for the FliteTest store which until February 2013 sold pretty much just T-shirts and stickers.

There is much to be grateful for and most of all you, our audience. Thanks for the incredible love and support. The primary way we have spread is from you taking the initiative to introduce your friends and family to FliteTest and all this great hobby has to offer. We can’t thank you enough for being the “evangelists” for our brand.

This episode of FliteTest we talk about some silly mistakes that we have made while getting started in flying RC and the building or repairing process. Hopefully we can share a few things NOT to do while flying RC and tell some good stories in the process.
