    Mini Arrow "Beluga" Pod Mod

    After building my first Mini Arrow I realized very quickly that the electronics pod was not big enough for me. I squeezed my 1000mah 3S in there anyway and taped the thing shut. Well that Arrow had a quick drop with a sudden stop, so I decided to make a new one with a bigger pod. I started...

    Modified FT Arrow V3

    Hi guys, I just finished my most recent version of the FT Arrow and wanted to know what you guys think. The last one I made had an expanded electronics pod but it eventually failed structurally due to the lack of spar continuity through the middle. This one addresses that problem by including a...

    FT Mini Arrow Battery Sizing

    Hi All- I'm struggling to find what batteries will fit in the FT Mighty Mini Arrow (without modification). I see they sell a Hyperion 850mAh 3s 20c Lipo with the kit, but they're out of stock on those. I noticed they have an 800mah 3s lipo in stock, which has the dimensions of 55x30x21mm...

    Insane FT Arrow, 2500 degrees/second Flat Spin

    Felt obligated to share this crazy thing my roommate recently made. With 2400kv 1808s set up on reversing afro 30 amps this thing is able to rotate about its yaw axis at about 400RPM. I don't think there has ever been any FT arrow able to do this. When parallel to the horizon, it is almost...

    Diving in

    Making my entrance into fixed-wing with some plans, some foam, a beer and a Flitetest video! I'm being a little bold with an Arrow, but I'm really excited about it and hoping my few months of 'copter experience will give me a walking-start! Wish me luck!

    I am a new builder

    I am planning on building the mighty mini arrow (I will buy the speed build kit) very soon and I am wondering if I need to buy a receiver separately from the arrow. If so, could somebody please give me a link to a recommended receiver (I already have a orangerx dsm2 transmitter)?

    FU4 Corsair"style" Scratch build

    I have been toiling over a plan in my head to build my own Corsair plane. Now I know there are lots of plans out there and even a swappable design for the Corsair, which I down loaded and have printed out! I just wanted to try my own design at it and make it inexpensive. So here is the progress...

    Multi-rotor arm construction

    How does flex in arms effect multi-rotors? I was thinking of using carbon arrow shafts to build a tri. But now that I have the arms mounted to the frame I see that the arrow shafts flex slightly. I was thinking that maybe this will help reduce vibrations to the frame / cam? Or will this just...
