Tait Design Co. Turbo Flyer

View all 10 Photos

More durable than the planes of my youth, Tait Design Co.’s “Turbo Flyers” can soar up to 50 feet without losing so much as a wingtip. The balsa wood pieces, including a 12” wing span, are fabricated at TechShop Detroit. Once they arrive at Tait’s Michigan headquarters, Matthew Tait hand-prints them in “Classic Black,” “Fire Red,” “Emerald Green,” or “Peacock Blue” ink. He secures the pieces in a cardboard wallet that Velcros shut, allowing for plane assembling on-the-go. Although the planes are currently sold out, you can take a look and enter your email to stay in the loop about when the next planes come flying in.
