    Father and Son - Multi-Rotor

    My 15yo son and I just built our first mini quad (a Martian II 220) and did a short maiden yesterday. We've been long time FT fans and have finally started to expand beyond fixed wing RC and see what the FPV craze is all about. We're taking our time and spending lots of time on the sim. Loved...

    Flite Test Builds: Add FPV?

    Hi everyone ;) ! I am looking to build a small aircraft that has some acrobatic possibilities and can carry a small fpv system like the Eachine TX03 (weighs about 6 grams). Which ft planes would carry it fine? In particular, would the mighty mini sportster, the mighty mini dr1 and/or se5 carry...

    Alternative to DOPE on tissue/Trainer build pics

    Balsa and tissue became an obvious solution for lightness, compared to foamcore. Easy to build and assemble, so easy in fact, that i was done before i ever learned about airplane dope. I would assume that the majority of amateur builders never pick any up, and instead just do a little...

    Old new guy, starting over

    O.K., I've made a few posts here, four so far, of little consequence, but now I need to post something of importance - I think.:o I finally got around to printing, taping together and cutting out the plans for the Mini Guinea. I then made a kit from Dollar Store foam board and built the plane...

    Is The Versacopter A Good First Multirotor?

    As Christmas approaches I am thinking of getting a Versacopter for my first multi-rotor and I am curious if this is a good decision. I want a small drone plat form that I can later upgrade, and the versacopter is right in my price range. If the versacopter is a horrible starter multi-rotor...

    Looking forward to getting this build going. The glue gun should be in the mailbox sometime this weekend and I'm going to take some time putting it all together. I actually bought this kit back in November 2013 along with the "Beef" LazerToyz power pack and it's all been sitting in my garage...

    looking for plane for a lite 3D fam board plane

    Hi, So I have build a few ft planes now and want to make something they do not have yet. I have this 2805/50 24g Motor (or alternatively a power pack A : MT1806 ) with quite a few 2s 360 mah batteries. With this setup, the motor can apparently generate around 280g of thrust (with a 9*4.7). I...

    FT Tiny Trainer First Build

    So I'm looking to get into the hobby with only 5 mins experience on a 2 channel aircraft before i crashed it. The tiny trainer kit looks like a good kit to start out with, and I plan to use my schools transmitter (Which i'm pretty sure is high-end spektrum) and field. The kit includes options...

    FT Bushwhacker electronics setup help

    Hey gals and guys! I am trying to get the gear together to build a Bushwhacker (God I love that plane). However, being in the UK I'm going to have to source the electronics individually and, at times, approximate to the closest equivalent available. Since I'm not exactly experienced with...

    Mustang Build

    Hopefully this will only post once. The last time I tried it crashed halfway through. I'm about to embark on the speed build Mustang and was wondering if there were any words of wisdom that I should know going in. Maybe something that was glossed over in the build video like how the wing...
