    Guinea Pigs

    So, I have an idea... Seeing the pun jet inside the Guinea Pig got me thinking. I thought it would be cool to see the Giant Guinea Pig, with a folding wing Guinea Pig inside, and inside the (regular sized) Guinea Pig would be a Pun Jet. When all dropped, all three would have their own rockets on...

    Variable airfoil wing.

    Challenge: 1. Try to make an aircraft with wings that you can change the airfoil of in flight. 2. See if you can remove the ailerons and instead change one wings airfoil at a time for roll. 3. See if you can essentially flip over the airfoil in flight and get lift while flying inverted. Extra...

    Flite Fest Speed challenge

    I think it would be really fun to have a speed challenge at Flite Fest. The way it could work would be to have someone clocking the speeds with a radar gun and each opponent would have three tries to reach the fastest speed they could. The person who clocks the fastest speed is the winner.

    CHALLENGE: Build a flying platform and launch a plane

    Attach multiple rotors to any surface to create a large flying platform. Build a release system and launch a small plane from the platform. Bonus points for cool extras like floating, cameras, heli pad, and a rubber band to assist launching the plane.

    CHALLENGE: Make a car fly

    Get any hobby-grade RC car, and without removing anything on the car, find a way to make it fly by taking off on the wheels. The car must be fully functional, the plane able to climb to 10 feet, and no copters allowed.

    CHALLENGE: Build a plane using a car motor

    Get any materials you need, then build a plane with a car motor and somehow connect a plane esc to the motor. I'm sure this would be amazingly fast.

    Hey Flite Test Crew, I am a new RC hobbyist and fan of your videos. I have some ideas for videos I would like to see. This Christmas, I am asking for a quad and am looking at the Blade 180 QX RTF. When looking for an RC product, I always look to Flite Test, but you haven't reviewd the copter...
