Fortis is the Latin word for strength- and that is exactly what Fortis Airframes is all about…
I have been flying single-rotor helicopters for years, but I wasn’t improving in my skills because I couldn’t afford to risk a crash. Every time the rotors touched the ground it was a minimum of $20 in replacement parts (often much more) and about two hours to rebuild the rotorhead. I decided that if I was going to continue in the hobby, I would have to find something that wouldn’t explode if I looked at it funny. Multirotors seemed to be the answer, but being an engineer, I thought I could design something to better meet my specific needs.
The result was the TITAN Tricopter, and it worked so well that people worldwide started requesting kits. So I started Fortis Airframes to help people like me who are in need of stuff that’s tough to break. I enjoyed designing the TITAN so much that I’m going to keep right on going to design an entire line of multirotor parts that can take a beating. Stay tuned, this is only the beginning!
I would also like to say that the number one goal of Fortis Airframes is to serve the Lord. I am imperfect, so I will do this imperfectly, but my prayer is that this company would be used by the Lord to do his will.

The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. –Psalm 28:7
But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. -Joshua 24:15
