    Quadcopter Sky Hook

    So I was reading the news this afternoon and found an interesting article on Fox News about a launch and recovery quad that utilized a sort of sky hook for fixed wings, the idea being that no fixed wing drone pilot wants to belly land an expensive military drone on the deck of an aircraft...

    Doing a viewer request "Atitude challenge"

    Hello, I am Karthick Ashwath and I like your show very much. Could you please do a Viewer Request Altitude Challenge in one of your future episodes? The rules are: You may use any aeroplane/aircraft. You may not use rocket motors Each plane must be fitted with an altimeter which records the...

    Show suggestion (Steampunk)

    I am a big fan of Steampunk airships. They all have some sort of propulsion. Hint Hint a electric motors. How about making a airship (dirigible). It would be awesome, in my opinion as well as a challenge for the builders. Airships hover and move just like a copter.

    Challenge. Multi rotor in space!

    How high can you get a multi rotor to fly? Anything goes, GPS, radio control, timer, don't matter. Get it as high as you can and prove how high it went with telemetry or video. Can you beat a rocket? Do it.

    Challenge: Build a EKIP Tarielka :DD

    I challenge you guys to build a "EKIP Tarielka" That Russian thingy looks like this: Its cross section looks like this: And here's a video of it flying, just to prove that it works: https://youtu.be/GNn1rVJeM08?t=7m10s

    FT Flying 3d Printer

    I know this probably sounds absolutely ridiculous, but I challenge the FliteTest team to make a plane that can fly long enough to 3d print a part for the aircraft carrying the 3d printer. I figure that if you guys can make a cinder block fly than you can somehow fill a plane with enough...

    Breadstick/Baguette plane

    Here's a challenge for you. Try and make a baguette fly! I'm thinking of the bread as the fuselage, then you can build around that. Pretty easy to hollow out to make space for electronics, too. Just don't leave it laying around in the shop for a few months! You could even make two and have a...

    Josh Bixler Challenge

    You guys built the Spitfire swappable but thats a straight wing for the most part. I'd like to see you guys build a Corsair with that funky wing and if it flys good, PLEASE offer it as a swappable haha

    CHALLENGE: Size

    Yet another idea: a challenge where the competitors try to make the smallest flyable plane they can.

    CHALLENGE: Altitude

    I don't think this has been done before on Flite Test: Have a challenge where the competitors try and build the highest-flying plane they can (with a limited budget maybe?). Keep up the good work!

    The G force challenge!

    Much like the speed challenge, contestants must design or build off of some plane that already have to make it cope with its environment. It isn't just brute force like the speed challenge, because you also have to think about how much lifting surface your plane will have when pitching up and...

    Challenge: Take your FPV for a walk.

    I just burned a battery on an FPV quad just walking around my back yard while watching myself through the Fatsharks. If you are an FPV flyer you probably already know the weirdness of seeing yourself through the goggles. Catching a glimpse of some person just sitting there wearing Fatsharks is...

    FLITE TEST CREW CHALLENGE: Simple Delta Ray Upgrade

    It seems this challenge/request has been lingering around for a while in various parts of the Internet: How can a relative newbie to the hobby upgrade the Delta Ray so that it has more power and a longer flight time, without giving up SAFE or doing some complex overhaul? This has been...

    An 225 Mriya

    The Antonov An-225 Mriya, the largest plane in the world(length). I would really like to see a foamie version. As of yet, this plane has never been made into an rc version, as far as I could find. It might be due to its immense size, but I callenge you guys at flight test to make one. I t is...

    Bi-directional plane challenge

    I think the Flitetest crew could fly this well before NASA does. http://www.gizmag.com/rotating-bi-directional-flying-wing-design/23982/ Regards, Brent

    Challenge- How Slow Can You Go??

    I am enjoying all of the Flite Test videos on youtube. Inside the cockpit, getting behind the plane is a bad thing. Inexperienced RC fliers like myself want to stay ahead of the aircraft until we ease into flying a little faster and getting comfortable. So here is the challenge: Create...

    Show Suggestion: Viewer Challenge

    Hey Flite Test, love your show When I was watching your 2014 Horizon Indoor video I laughed at the part of the two planes attached to each other. But that got me thinking, I know during WWII we used tow planes effectively but what if you had more and more planes to tow? Could you make...

    Rocket challenge!

    Hey guys =D As we all know, David Windestål loves planes, and he has an affinity to bring things to the edge until nothing is left. It has been so with the rocketplane he destroyed with a f-rocket he glued into this. Today I've seen a Video about selfmade candyrockets, and I assume that this...
