Raphael Pirker (Trappy) is an Austrian born university student that has a passion for flying first person view (FPV) RC planes. Recently his passion got him in some hot water recently!
He decided to prove what many people thought couldn't be done. He flew an unmanned aerial vehicle in New York city. While the footage is stunning, and Trappy claims it was all legal, many feel it was an irresponsible and reckless act.
Flite Test is a strong supporter of the RC flying community. We believe everyone should practice responsible and safe behavior. We also believe in treating people with decency and respect, no matter what they have done. Many people have been making judgments and accusations then posting them as facts. This interview is a rare opportunity to hear Raphael's opinions and ideas straight from his mouth.
Flite Test, and its producers, do not condone unsafe or irresponsible behavior. Please take the time to understand, and abide by local laws and regulations while flying.

Flite Test Mission Statement:
Flite Test was created for people passionate about RC flight. Our hope is to create a show for the people that build and fly planes and helicopters as a hobby. They are the dreamers and engineers that get a thrill from the first hand launch of a maiden flight. The show will personify the veteran and the beginner alike giving them a chance to share common experiences with others, in turn, enhancing the RC community. The goal is to develop a creative outlet that allows us to work in our passion daily. Flite Test is designed to cater to the audience. It has just enough humor, technology and information to appeal to the RC flight crowd as a whole. We hope to empower, entertain and educate as we move forward with quality content.
