    Does anyone think a Yak-54 would be possible?

He passed away in 2020 in a plane crah and i want to pay respects to him and his legacy before i follow in his footsteps in a real plane. I know the round fuselage would be difficult for certain reas but I believe it...

    XA (3D) with Foam Board Design Challenge

    This should be an interesting build off to see what is possible with foam board. Personally, I find 3d and XA to be very fun, but extremely expensive. Even a ~50" airframe can run you up to 200$- not including electronics. Wouldn't it be great if we could build our own airframes for less than...

    Aeronaut 2m Sailplane

    My latest design, a 2m sailplane. It was inspired by Tony Mellor's Alto saiplane, found here: https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=11611 I wanted a glider with well-rounded capabilities that could handle a variety of wind conditions. We'll see if it succeeds in that regard, but I have...

    Building the Balrog - 2kg/70oz biplane - out of foamboard (but also balsa and plywood ;)

    Description The goal of the project was to make use of a couple of old ~450W+ motors (Dualsky XM3548CA-5 850kV and Turnigy C3548 900kV) and four 4s 2300mAh LiFe battery packs that have been lying around idle for several years now. Since this stuff is pretty heavy, and since I like biplanes, it...

    Multirotor acrobatic flying (warthox style)

    Hi all, Since I couldn't find any "acrobatic" multirotor flying thread on the forum, I thought about starting a thread in the electric multirotor section, and eventually, if enough people is (or get) hooked to it, maybe creating a section for it in the "specialty flying" section ! :) So, to...

    3D Foamie with 2200mAh 3s 30C

    I have stocked up on 2200mAh 3s 30C batteries. I was wondering if any of you know a good 3D foamie which will accept my batteries, which will ship to UK addresses. I would preferably like a KIT/ARF/PNF/BNF, but not an RTF. Also, I'd rather have something like a scale aerobatic plane, not a...
