When Red Bull brought Flugtag to DFW (human powered flying machine event), we literally jumped at the chance to enter. Our idea was an homage to the recently burned Big Tex of Texas State Fair fame. Out of over 1,400 entries, we were one of 30 teams selected. Several months and thousands of man hours later, ‘Big Tex En Fuego’ was created and ready for flight. We donned our state fair food inspired outfits and took off into the Flugtag history books.
