Flynoceros

Flyno... Race Yes!

That’s our motto. Why? Because we like rhinos, flying, and a we like to abbrv. things! Flyno! Sounds bad, but we made it good.. race yes!

There’s a few things we do at Flynoceros that no one else does. We love rapid prototyping. We love putting those prototypes in your hands and letting you tell us what you like and don’t like. That’s why we offer our replacement plan. Don’t worry about breaking your frames, fly it like you want! If you break it, we will help you get back in the air.

We work hard to continually improve our designs as well as take advantage of new data, information and trends to keep our products current and exciting. If you have an idea, we’ll make it. If you want a tweak on one of our designs will do it. If you just want to fly… we’ve already got it!

Josh Ingram

Owner - Prak

I started Flynoceros after being in the FPV racing community for only a year. Even though I was only a year in (Flynoceros was started in 2014), I had the technical expertise to back it up.  I studied, worked, and hacked my way through several different industries. I’ve studied product design, software development, and electronics at some of the top schools including MIT and Harvard. I’ve also worked for some of the top designers and engineers in the world.

With all I’ve done over the last 20 years, nothing has touched my passion more that FPV racing. Every aspect of the sport from the moment you start sourcing components, to the build, to the test, and finally racing… or is it hacking your quad between races just so you can get another flight in after that epic crash. The point is I love this sport, I love designing all kinds of things related to the sport, and I love talking to you about the sport too. Feel free to look through my designs and products. If you think I can do something better, tell me. If you like something, email me. The best part of this sport is talking to people like you.

Troy Naquin

Sales And Operations Manager - CheFPV

As a Chef and Restaurant Manager for over a decade I learned how ones passions can drive an individual to be successful only if you also set those around you up to succeed as well. With this same mindset and a proven track record in a field of work I loved, I decided to make drones my career. I was not sure how, and I did not have a plan other than keep learning, keep sharing, and keep connecting dots for those around me when I was afforded the opportunity. Today I find myself working for an amazing company, Flynoceros, while helping make other FPV careers a reality for as many passionate pilots that we can.

When I fly, I escape the rest of the world that is left behind in my cameras constant forward perspective. It is therapy, it is adventure, it is freeing in ways that many do not experience, and for those reasons I have always held sharing my experiences as important to me. My content will give you an unrestricted look at my journey through this hobby turn career and I hope you enjoy the ride.

“Fly Safe, Fly Smart, Just Fly”

Ryan Terry

Assistant Marketing Manager - BiffFPV

Ever since I was a child, I have been taking things apart and turning them into something new, many of my RC cars were turned into battlebots. As I got older I became interested in aviation through fixed wing RC planes. years later my interest was sparked once again when stumbling into fpv on youtube, which led me down this pathway. The freedom felt while flying is one of the best stress relievers I have found.

I fly flyno for a few reasons, 1) the design is incredible and every detail gets covered. 2) they stand by their product with a lifetime warranty. 3) The Flyno Family, from the time I asked a question about a frame Josh and the team at Flyno was very welcoming and made me feel like one of them. This whole process has been a dream come true.

Simir Bath

Flynoceros Pilot - Airbath

I’ve been an FVP pilot for a little over two years but have been an avid sports enthusiast and thrill seeker for a lifetime. My pilot name AirBath was inspired by Air Jordan, an icon and leader who elevated not just basketball but what it meant to be a champion in your craft and life. The FPV Drone community has allowed me to express my interest in technology and adventure. While also creating content and collaborating with incredible and talented individuals from all spectrum’s of the sport, such as my sponsors Flynoceros. Living in the Bay Area continues to inspire me to take advantage of the technology and nature available. Through my content, I hope to share a glimpse of what it’s like to fly. I look forward to growing and developing with my team as we take on the challenges and obstacles of being in the competitive Industry of Drones.

Flynoceros Pilot - Crux

Hi, I’m Crux from Austin Texas and I love FPV. I’ve been hooked on flying and building quads since I won a toy multirotor at a tech conference in 2014. I race mostly but enjoy any time I’m lucky enough to be in the goggles.

Flying FPV has given me so much in the last 4 years that it’s hard to express. I think in short, good times, great friends, and the opportunity to help others to share in what we do, are the things that mean the most to me.

I started flying Flynoceros frames because they were tough and held up to the abuse we dish out chasing the perfect line or gap.

I fly with Flyno now because I know they feel the same way about FPV that I do.

Kevin Schmenk

Flynoceros Pilot - KidKhaos

What’s up guys, Im Kevin Schmenk and I have been flying FPV for a little over 3 years. I got into it after some of my friends convinced me to try it and haven’t looked back. I have been in the RC world since I was 8, but the majority of that time was land not air. I became a factory offroad racer for a distribution company and competed for many years. Once I transitioned to FPV, I gradually stepped away from the cars and focused more on the quad scene. I truly love the freedom you have with FPV and the rush you get from the limitless amount of maneuvers they are capable of. In MultiGP chapter for my area and have a group of 50 or so pilots that regularly post and meet up. Its been a fun journey so far and I cant wait to see what the future holds.

I’m working on becoming more comfortable with harder maneuvers and to really smooth out my movements. I want to create smooth and entertaining freestyle edits as well as continue to push my boundries and improve my skills. I do plan to race some here and there and hope to improve my speed and compete at regional qualifiers as well as trying to go further.

I chose Flynceros because I believe in their products. I think they are very innovative and very well thought out designs. Every frame I’ve purchased has been tough as nails and performs beyond expectations. They are always creating and improving things which keeps them at the fore front of the industry. The owner is an awesome guy who has always given great customer service and advice. I believe in what they stand for as a company and hope to continue to be a part of the team and witness to the future success that is coming for them.

Flynoceros Pilot - Kwadrakil

The first time I got behind the goggles (NOV 2017) I fell in LOVE. The freedom of flight has changed the way I view the world. When I decided to get serious in the hobby and really push myself to improve my flying I looked for a frame that could take the abuse of a new pilot. I came across an IG video of fellow pilot Mike Qualls sending and smashing a Sköll into concrete and flying away like it was nothing. After that, I got myself one and never looked back. FPV has become more than a hobby for me, it became a passion and a lifestyle. I love the sense of comradery in the FPV community. I’ve met so many amazing people, that if not for FPV, I would not have had the pleasure of knowing. The creative side of FPV is what drives me. Finding your own “style” and identifying with it. I want someone, who has never thought about FPV before, to watch one of my videos and say “I want to do that”

Kyrstie “Miss Creature” Nesplak ,from BC Canada- recently relocated to Oregon- has been flying since April 2017 and is turbo determined to get better and better. Kyrstie, since age 2, has been around high horse powered cars and machines non-stop. Growing up she raced, built, rock crawled, and was featured on BBC auto for one of her builds. She was introduced to flying quads by her boyfriend, who took her out to fly one day. She was instantly grabbed a new high powered hobby. She has loved art since very young, completely self taught, she now works as a full time artist since taking the plunge to quit her regular job and do what she loves most like logos and T-shirt designs for the community. She is determined to bring good vibes and happiness to the community along with some wicked ripping sessions!

“I am excited to fly with Flynoceros! The frames are to die for. Coming from an automotive background, you learn a lot about physics and other mumble-jumble… seeing the frames that were being produced, i was instantly excited to try them out. They are built tough and for all kinds of pilots. Being new to the hobby, the sköll & sköll v2 has been nothing but AMAZING for me because it proves its durability better then any other frames I have seen around. I dont know much about quads just yet but im excited to learn! I feel like im learning all about cars…all over again.

My goals are to make people smile and see that we can all be friendly/kind in this community… in any community involving enthusiasts of all kinds… I want people to never forget to “just go out and have a blast!” I also wish to use my artistic side to make parts, design things etc -that would be cool.”

Mike Qualls aka “quallsalmighty” started flying FPV around febuary of 2017 and has not looked back. Freestyle is Mike’s primary flying preference, and enjoys finding new “bandos” and other locations to rip.

“Finding that flow in a new spot is always fun and challeging and it pushes me as a pilot. I was beyond stoked to be a part of the Flyoceros team. I have to have a frame that can take what I throw at it. Josh and Flyno were able to deliver that.”

Mikes passion for flying has also sparked a new love of video editing and content creation. Keep an eye out for some awesome content!
