FLYING A KITE IS AN EXPERIENCE LIKE NEVER BEFORE !
Michael Lim, founder of GoFlyKite.com Pte Ltd, barely passed his Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) and started off his career as a jeweler at the age of 20 with more than 20 years of experience in jewelry design. He enjoys flying remote control planes and helicopters during leisure time. However, flying remote control planes and helicopters were never easy and involves high maintenance costs. After some time, he realized that his interest lies in flying remote control planes more than anything else. He then decided to switch his business, combining his hobby with his profession.
The Company was then established in 2001. At the beginning, Research & Development (R&D) was the biggest challenge as he did not have any reference from any existing aero modeling designs but after many tests, the first kite was successfully launched in 2000.
Inspired by stars in the night sky, he decided to add LED lights to the kites to enable it to be flown at night. Today’s GFK RC Kites are all designed with colorful LED lights.
With this innovation, everyone’s dream of flying has come true. Michael wrote a little piece of Aviation History in Singapore. After 1000 years of kite flying, he revolutionised the concept of kite flying. Without strings, RC Kites are able to do loops, rolls, stall turns, hover, acrobatic stunts and play games such as kite soccer, dog fighting, speed racing and drop zone.
