Company Overview

Fliton is a designer and manufacturer of specialty RC airframes for the remote control airplane market.  The company is based in Seoul, Korea.

Fliton markets their products under one single brand name, Fliton Premium ARFs (sometimes referred to as just Fliton). The kits are all constructed of built up balsa and plywood with the traditional plastic iron-on type covering. Kits always come with an airframe only. The wing, fuselage, and tailpieces are all assembled and ready to be coupled with each other. The kits are generally intended to be powered with an electric power system but can be converted to internal combustion engine power if desired. Power system selection as well as radio gear selection and installation is up to the builder but general guidelines are typically available in the product manuals.

At the time of this writing (June 2011) the two best sources for information on the Fliton company were Fliton Store (www.flitonstore.com) and Advantage Hobby (www.advantagehobby.com) who appears to be one of the only other active online dealers. The website that Fliton references in most of their manuals, www.fliton.com, no longer appears to be in use. Both of those websites have some level of new kits available as well as a fair amount of replacement parts for most Fliton kits.
