Please excuse this webpage as "behind the scenes" we continue to build a "catalog" page that we are all most used to seeing and ordering from.
PLEASE be aware that it could take a week or more to fullfill your order. We are a very small company manufacturing a very unique product with limited resources.
We do our best to ship as soon as possible...Supplies come in from around the world and some things are completely out of our contro. Occasionally there is a slight backorder of a particular item.
If you have questions about your order please email. THANK YOU!

About Lightflite and our Mission
Well, there has been a LOT of experimentation and "goings on" behind the scenes at Lightflite this past season and there is an awful lot in the works! We are always seeking ways to improve what currently exists, like having "custom" items that we need manufactured, sourcing items that have yet to reach the market, and all the while keeping a sharp eye out for more "unique" kits and accessories to bring you to increase your flying enjoyment. Though there is some really great stuff out there that we all fly and buy, myself included, however, we don't offer mass marketed ARF's and the like, only kits that we offer we manufacture and test ourselves exclusively.
Instead of the term "RTF" (ready to fly), we affectionately call most of our models "RTC", short for "READY to CRASH", as they are known for their durability !
We are a small business, production is growing steadily but not on the level of any major distributor by any means. We appreciate your patience as we perfect any additions to our lineup before we can ship. If we say "it's coming", it will be available at some point while we perfect the design, source the proper equipment, and work out any production issues to reliably supply you your unique RC goodies!
We take total pride on how we deal with you, the customers, offering personalized service, parts, building, flying, and set-up advice via email or phone. We try our best to source and provide you with excellent products that we ourselves have tested and use everyday. Our policy is simple, if for some reason you don't like a product that you receive from us for any reason, simply return it to us for an exchange or a refund of the items cost.
Don't have the time to build? We offer "RTF" packages, just ask for a custom quote.
Our MISSION is to offer and share with you, first and foremost, very UNIQUE flyers not found anywhere else on planet RC! They must be durable, FUN, entertaining to you and also to most any onlookers who witness the "magic" flying abilities they posess, as well as provide addictive flight qualities that keep you learning the "possibilities", for a long time to come. They also must be capable of slow flying enough to relax and simply enjoy, be able to fly in and "up close" in small areas or spaces, be verstaile enough to fly both indoors and out, and also provide a good dose of 3D action if so desired. That's a mouthful, but I think you get the idea! :) More "smiles per milliamp" then can be found anywhere. I hope we have fullfilled a good portion of this goal as witnessed by the many groups and individuals all over the world who are now flying and loving the "BUG". The online groups and forums have affectionately taken to identifying these "BUG" flyers as ""BUGGIES". It almost has reached "cult" status! Thank you for your continued support.

The 17" MINI "BUG" Combo Kits and ARF's
Choose this 17" BUG if you want your BUG to be a little "hotter"!
Due to its lightweight and design, this 17" MINI survives and exceeds all of the legendary "BUG" durability tests. You would have to run this thing over with your car to hurt it! A nicely sized compact dashboard sized RC buddy, perfect for those "random acts of flying". Best for those with with a reasonable dose of "BUG" experience as it is a "bit" faster in all respects. Very similiar in flying characteristics but not quite as slow, floaty, and stable as the regular size "BUG" due to the scaling down effect, and requires a bit more "all fingers on deck" approach to flying. However, if your up for it, hold on... and get ready for much faster aileron rolls and wild manuevers that will certainly keep you entertained! You can fly it calmly and slowly in little or no wind, tons of fun in light winds. It can display lots of aerobatic attitude, and can scoot right along! Indoors in tight spaces, or outdoors in windy conditions, I am sure you will find that it is great addition to your BUG family fun!
Computer radio (expo and dual rates) is definetly needed to tame this one :)
