    First "Flight" and first Crash

    Hello, I am Robert from Germany and I am just starting in the Hobby. Today I finished the build of the Tiny Trainer with the polyhedral wings and a Power Pack A (german version from Graupner) and an 3s 850mAh battery. After completing the electronic setup I checked the Center of Gravity and...

    FT Tiny Trainer Center of Gravity

    This week I received my Tiny Trainer Get Started Package, and I just finished assembling it in the three channel configuration. After putting all of the electronics in, I found that the plane was very nose-heavy, so much so that I had to put the battery at the very back of the velcro strip to...

    Tuning, Levelling, Balancing - Getting it Airborne (Tricopter)

    Good day friends, I've completed the V2.6HV by David, and its to the point where Im trying to get it airborne. I can hover, somewhat, but so far the drift is far too crazy for me to be able to fly it properly. My most recent sessions resulted in two broken Rotor Bone motor mounts, and a lot of...
