When there’s no string, there’s no limit
One Man’s Inspiration
Michael Lim, founder of GoFlyKite.com Pte Ltd, had barely passed his Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) and started off his career as a jeweler at the age of 20.
During his leisure time as a jeweler, he enjoys flying radio-controlled planes and helicopters. However, flying radio-controlled planes and helicopters are never easy and involves high maintenance costs.
Michael began his research and development journey with the aim in mind to design and create a flying aircraft that is affordable and highly crash resistance. It was his biggest challenge as he could not take any reference from any of the existing aeromodelling aircraft designs. After various rounds of testing, the first kite was successfully launched in 1998.
After some time, he realized that his interest grew further in flying radio-controlled planes more than anything else and decided to do a career switch in setting his own business combining his hobby with his profession.
Inspired by stars in the night sky, he then decided to add LED lights to the kites to enable it to be flown at night. Today’s our GFK Radio-Controlled Kites are 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 more than 1000 years of traditional kite flying, he revolutionized 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.
