😬😧🥴 Recently went outside my comfort zone…

Flying off a 9m platform in Red Bull Flugtag Canada 2022 (which we won)!

We saw Instagram ads for Red Bull Flugtag and watched clips from past events on YouTube and thought that it looked fun. We also thought it would be a great team-building opportunity that would allow us to showcase our diverse skillset as a company. When it comes to building, we specialize in IoT products, not 20 ft. long aircrafts. But we knew if anybody could do it, we could. The anticipation of the event, the camaraderie of the build, the flight itself, and the rush of the cold water all culminated in a feeling of euphoria.
