    Let´s include every design!
    I don't know every plane in this forum, so please share a picture and the following data for every plane you want to have a card for:
    • Plane:
    • Designer:
    • Wingspan:
    • Weight without battery:
    • Center of gravity:
    • Recommended battery:
    • Recommended motor size:
    • Recommended motor kv:
    • Recommended ESC:
    • Recommended prop:

    Thank´s in advance!

    I like playing cards with my family. So why there is no game about our planes made of FliteTest Foam Board?
    There are a lot of designs created by FliteTest and the FT Community!

    FliteTest would you create a card game?
    Also you could attach one card to every speed build kit - just like trading cards.

    Or should we create a card game in the FT Community - a free DIY-game?

    Here is a suggestion for the layout with some examples (first considerations):

    Play the fast-paced game and learn about planes made of FliteTest Foam Board. Play different versions the game using the 8 facts on each card. At each turn in the game, a different plane may win. One may have a larger wingspan while another has a higher kv!

    May the cards be with you!

    What do you think?

    Cool! Like the cards they made during WW2 to help everyone identify aircraft silhouettes.
    Enjoy a blessed day!

    Anything to vanquish the ever-persistant Pokémon!
    Truths in life:
    1) Everything that happens happens for a reason. Luck does not exist.
    2) In this existence we are part of the problem or part of the solution. The choice is ours.
    3) We aren't defined by our circumstances but by our reactions to them. Crisis reveals character.

    I love the idea of having a set of these cards - especially with lots of community planes in addition to the FT ones like you've started here.

    The gamification doesn't interest me as much, but I'd love to be able to flip through a deck when I have a motor come available and say 'oh yeah- I can use it in that cool design'.

    What software are you using to create these?

    Thanks!

    I think every plane made of Foam Board - whether from FliteTest or from the community - should have a card.
    Like a model has a comp card.

    I use Microsoft Publisher to create the cards.

    I still need some data to finish this card:

    Don't forget DLGs too.

    I'm a fan of CCGs like Magic The Gathering, pokemon (from my son) even Sushi Go! or Lord of the Fries, et al. for this game maybe a cross between Spit and Rummy 500. with a Melbourne/Uno setback kinda thing Like "run out of Glue sticks, Lose your turn re-stocking". The big question is what's the point of the game? first to build a plane? My thought is it's to eliminate the build pool.

    Here's my thought:
    There is an aircraft deck and a parts deck. The aircraft deck, has all the planes - like you're setting up now. The parts deck is all the parts one might need to build it. Each part has a pt value (Happy Josh faces)

    Component Cards Like:
    • Transmitter: Basic (4ch max), advanced (6ch), Expert (8+ch)
    • Reciever: 4ch, 6ch, 8+ch SBUS
    • Batteries: 2s 3s 4s
    • Foam: Plain, Water-proof (the sea duck et. al must use waterproof)
    • ESCs: 6a 12a 20a 30a
    • Propellers: 3", 5", 8", 10"
    • Motor: 1806/2300kv, 2822/1200kv, 2215/920kv
    • Maybe even have a Power Pack (joker) card for A, B or C Power packs which has all the components (ESC, Motor, Prop, servos)
    • Servos: 5g and 9g
    • FPV - adds 2pts to a build.


    You try to build the planes in the stacks. when all are built, the game is done. You count your points at the end of the round.

    Boon and Bust cards like: "out of glue", "Part Failure - prop bust", "Failed Maiden", "Parts from China" all cause your opponent to miss their next turn. Then add cards like, "Mega Build sponsor help - Your Project has excited the community, this card satisfies 2 parts of your LARGE build." "FT Community support - Negate a Part failure card. After crashing you plane, community members pat you on the back, encouraging you to fix it while they drop a set of servos and a prop in your lap". "A 'looking great' comment bolsters your resolve. Pick another part card to use in your build."

    Anyway, that nickel's worth.
