3 Blade 56" Ceiling Fan - Light, Wall Control and Blades Included
A Piece of Art!
This is not just a fan it's a piece of art. Elegantly designed with a contemporary look, it stands out in the room and reliably receives compliments. It' extremely quiet once we balanced it correctly. My only compliant is that I wish the lowest speed of the fan went slower. We ordered the additional decorative extension rod that is specifically designed for this fan since we were hanging it from a high ceiling.....this is key to creating the overall look.

Not worth the money
Looks great--but I can only run this on low otherwise it wobbles. I put in a new fan brace-used the balancing kit and it still wobbles on medium. I have 7 Hunter ceiling fans in my house and none of them wobble on medium. Unfortunately Hunter does not have a great selection at this time so I decided to go with the Minka Aire Flyte because of it's sleek modern look. I should have waited for Hunter to come up with some new models.

I bought 2 lower priced fans and sent them back as they looked unbelievably cheap. The Flyte has high quality materials, the best instruction manual, was relatively easy to assemble, wire, and mount (my first one so it took awhile), excellent wall controls, and was nearly silent in running. It mounted with no wobble and has a very pleasing design. Air movement is great. Optional halogen light is also excellent.

We have 4 of the MinkaAire Flyte fans with birdseye maple blades at our Colorado home and just bought 3 with mahogany blades for our home in Ohio. Very contemporary, beautiful fans. We get compliments from everyone who sees them. LightingDirect.com is a wonderful company and their shipments arrive within a week. We are very pleased with everything we have ordered from them.

Nice but is it really worth $500
The fan looks good but I don't think it is worth $500.
Wood is dark brown not mahogany. They supply the down rod for 8' cieling, if you have a 10' or higher you will need to buy extra down rod. I think the canopy design was not well thought out. The fan does display a good amount of air throughout the room. Would I buy another? Not for the price.

Beautiful, sleek fan, but internet colors not accurate. fan blades are brown- not red.
