    The build begins...

    Ok, just ordered a racing frame for my chase/race quad. This will be my first 5 inch build and I don't have that much $ so I'll have to gradually buy parts for it. Here's the frame. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DSCH5MQ/?tag=lstir-20 I like the look of the frame and the fact that it has a...

    Feedback Request! Failed Test flight.

    Hello! I have a team at school that competes in an aero design competition every year. This year our aircraft had some trouble as once it was off the ground it yawed hard and crashed. I would love any feedback as to why the plane reacted as it did. If you have any questions please let me know...

    STAR WARS scratch builds

    Star wars has a ton of cool starship designs that look just great, but if you go into the aerodynamics, most of them have huge flaws that make building scale flying replicas almost impossible. It can be a real challenge to find a good balance between scale and good flight caracteristics. I made...

    Piper Cub J-3 Build Log

    Hi! As the title says, I'm going to build my first balsa kit, a 1200mm Piper Cub J3. It's definitely a bad choice for a first kit, since it's from Banggood, but I've read the instructions and I think it doesn't seem that hard. However, I can always ask you for help if I need it (I will). The...

    Endurance Quadcopter Build-Off

    This is going to be a fun one. For once, I am not dealing with maximizing acrobatic performance, speed, or camera stability. No, this time it is just that: time. Flight time specifically. My friend challenged me to a build off. Who can get the longest flight time from two 18650b batteries...

    Hey everyone. I'm new to all of this, just enjoy watching the Youtube channel and was thinking it would be fun to get into the hobby.

    Multi rotor build videos
